As most of you guys know, I've been using straight razors almost daily for several months now and here over the last month, I've been catching myself using my left hand for a number of this that I'd normally use with my right and I'm right handed. So naturally my right hand and arm is the dominate side but since I've made this incredible journey into straight razor shaving, my left arm and hand is getting used more often and thing that gets me the most is that I didn't even think about using my left hand or arm in those situations. So that tells me my initial learning curve is not only over, but my muscle memory has more than kicked in to say the least which is pretty cool. The statement about becoming ambidextrous after using straight razors for while is true:
I can't even remember how long my hiatus was or how many full blown straight razor shaves I've had at this point in the hobby. I was told that muscle memory usually kicks in after about maybe 50 to 70 shaves in give or take a little. I guess it depends on your commitment to the hobby. To get to this level where you don't even think about using your left hand in certain situations, you must stay committed to straight razor shaving. A very special thanks goes out to those that encouraged me to stick with it and not give up (you know who you all are).
