I've never shaved with a straight razor, but just for giggles this morning, I tried shaving a flat ~ 3 square inch area on the side of my face with mine and it worked! Not quite as close as my Shick Xtreme3, but it would do in a pinch. I stopped with that -- didn't want to push my luck. Today's an important day for me... Bama football, Redsox baseball, and a local arts & crafts festival, so I didn't get near my throatJNewell wrote:Something I noticed looking at mine last night: the edge on many Spyderco blades is often pretty "toothy." The edge on the Cruwear Military sprint, or at least the one I've got here, is a much smoother edge, almost polished. It's also exceptionally sharp, by production knife standards.
