Do you shave WITH or AGAINST the grain? And if you shave AGAINST do you first shave WITH and then AGAINST.

I guess my melon is more delicate than yours bud. I shave with the grain and only make a second pass against for special occasions.

Watch out bro. If you let it, it could take you into dangerous territory.

For some, going against the grain on the first pass causes irritation. Usually a splash of witch hazel helps soothe any damage done.

Against the grain yields a closer and smoother shave.
