Your state sets the law on this I believe. Consult your local barber shop and inquire the hairy-knuckled older gentleman.

I've shaven with an old straight razor of my grandpa's a few times...keep it sharp, make gradual adjustments until you find the right angle, and ALWAYS move in a perpendictular direction to the edge of the blade.

Anything else is suicide.
