Just tried shaving with a straight razor for the first time today. I'll definitely need practice. I nicked myself pretty good in two spots, and minor non-bleeders in a about a dozen more. The blade could use a better honing than what it came with, but it's not too bad. It's about as rough a shave as cartridge razors. It also wasn't as close as a cartridge, but I think that's down to practice.
All in all, I'm happy with my new razor and the results of my shave.
