For sure, each extreme will have its merits and demerits, but if you are new to this whole process, it is best you go for a safety razor. Safety razors are known to offer better protection against cutting yourself, and they are easy to learn and get used to and are inexpensive. You could also go for the double-blade razor instead of the multi-blade ones to reduce the risk of hurting yourself. Ensure the razor has a tight blade fit, is corrosion resistant and has a nice long handle to improve grip and control while shaving.
