Tips for first timers:
Albatross recommend the following…
First, make sure you are using a good lubricating shaving cream or soap. This is Critical to ensuring the blade can glide smoothly over your skin
Hold the razor at an angle of about 30 degrees between the blade and your skin
Do not apply much pressure or pull too hard; the weight of the razor itself is acting on the blade and that is generally sufficient for a great, close shave
Use short strokes, especially in the beginning
Rinse the blade often as you go
For an excessively excellent shave, try shaving after a shower or steam bath. The heat, water, and steam help to soften the hair for an even better shave. Note, this is not necessary though
Why go Flagship?
This may be the best value razor in the world today. As the logic goes, unless a meaningful number of people use our products, the change we seek to create in the world [Eliminating Plastic from Shaving] will be muted. In sailing terms this translates to: "Pure Function, Nothing Superfluous."
