Tips for Beginner (and veteran) Safety Razor Shavers

The proper angle for safety Razor Shaving is approximately 30 degrees which, is not an exact science...
Start by gently applying the blade and then angling it, then begin your shaving stroke until you can feel the whiskers being sliced off cleanly and effortlessly. You will actually be able to hear the sound of the whiskers being removed if done properly... Implement a locked wrist method to move the razor up and down, rather than bending at the wrist.  Take short strokes if you are attacking heavy beard growth, longer strokes for lighter growth. With a bit of practice your muscle-memory will kick in, and the proper angle for you and your razor will become second nature to you. If you are using a quality Safety Razor, the weight of the razor alone against your face will be sufficient to remove the whiskers without irritating the skin below. The proper angle is something that is acquired and perfected through practice. Be patient and you will have this technique mastered in no time!
