I also was asking because you might be dealing with some issues with your treatment, like your soap and stuff, that has nothing to do with your razor. I don't remove ALL the middle grit scratches on my straight, but my face shaves pretty easy, and I'm not an infant so I don't mind if my shave isn't buttery every time.

Also, if you want to get a new straight and don't have much money, look in local antique shops. Some of them are overpriced, and if you bring your phone and google the maker's mark in the store while you are "browsing", you will know way more than the shop keeper does about it, and can haggle a good price. Basically, if it's more than 70 years old, and from a cutlery center(sheffield, worchester mass, solingen, etc), they are all good.

More good info! Thanks Eamon. Yea, I use a pre-shave oil followed by a badger hair brush application of 'taylor of old bond st' cream, which has been great. I'll be on the look out for a proper razor.
