    Very well informed post noob . qatora Welcome. You clearly know a thing or two about shavettes.

    I shaved with a Feather AC for a couple years straight and you’re right. It can make you sore if you aren’t careful. I found myself doing two passes with it and calling it good. And it was good. Great even.

    But I have no idea what the end of your post means or why you posted a video of Jarred shaving - though I do get a kick out of him humming as he shaves lol.

    Welcome to the forum Qatora - great first post, you've obviously been doing this for awhile.

    I just shaved off the mu goatee, almost like learning to shave with a straight again, had to watch a favourite video of mine several times, what I've been doing to shave the upper lip and chin area.

    And when I almost went to do a ATG pass on the lip, the famous phrase of the, "fools pass" came to mind...not going to do it.

    WTG and XTG on the upper lip, just keep doing it like Willi here:

    Hello All,

    While I see that this thread doesn't get much action, I'll still add my voice to those who use shavettes. Despite the apparent disdain that some have for shavettes, I use mine along with my DE safety razors and my collection of straight edge razors. My favorite is a Feather AC knock-off eBay purchase from Korea. I've had it over 10 years and it still gives a very good shave using Feather Super Professional blades. Most recently, I purchased a curious looking ring razor shavette from Focus World UK. So far I like it. Shavette's have a permanent place in my rotation.Name:  ring razor.jpg

    Looks to be more of a weapon than a shaving tool. Brass knuckles and a short knife built into one!

    The looks are what got me to make the impulse purchase. So far the most dangerous thing was the cheap DE blade from Pakistan that was provided free. I used the free blade on my first shave with no blood loss but plenty of room for improvement in smoothness. I was afraid that another pass would result in me pressing a little and opening the crimson fountains. I'll try one of my feather blades for the next shave.

    It's a nice little experiment to help pass social distancing time.

    I have to admit it does look enteresting. It has lots of places to get a proper grip. If nothing else you could slice and dice the bad guy with it.
    It's just Sharpening, right?
