Shaving my 2 month old quarantine beard

Sup guys, I just posted my first youtube video. I'm shaving off my 2 month old quarantine beard with a straight razor. I'll be using my trusty Feather Club DX handle with Feather ProGaurd blades. Would appreciate any feedback as this is my first attempt at making a youtube channel. A thumbs up and subscription would mean the world to this new account. I'm going to try to make more vids of me shaving and getting shaved by barbers. Perhaps even do more men's hair grooming content beyond shaving.

Thanks in advance guy.

Good video and a nice shaving technique. The only point I would make is that whether your beard is 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years, it makes no difference to a straight razor which is why they are so much more effective than a guarded razor for removing excess growth.

You use a very obtuse angle, my angle is much more acute, when I use a straight razor the same applies to the Feather two spine widths, yours looks almost 90 degrees during some of your passes.

Very true. Ive tried all kinds of other shaves, but I always come back to using the straight razor.

Yea, in the later passes I get a little obtuse with my angles to get the really short stuff. I end up slashing myself up if I get too acute in the final passes. Luckily the feather blades are crazy sharp so they are still able to give me safe close shave even with the big angle. Thanks for watching the vid!

I saw your post over on the SRP in the US where I'm a longtime mentor on that forum, I think it was your first post for 11 years, you must have the longest sabbatical in between posts of any member I have known.:)

Yes, I saw that post on SRP and commented on that in the thread.
