Among shaving purists, whether it is bad to shave against the grain is an age-old question. I’m sure even the Egyptians, who started the fine art of shaving, had also thought about it. But given that they were more into shaving their heads bald instead of beards, they probably did not give it too much serious thought.
This is probably why that until today, there is no widespread consensus on whether shaving across the grain is good or bad. In the particular male subculture of shaving connoisseurs, opinions are as varied as many beard styles. Dive into any of those online forums about shaving, and you’ll always find someone who swears to shave for or against the grain.
