    My long-suffering wife laughs her butt off at me when I find an excuse to shave for the second time in a day. She claims that I'm addicted to the Haslinger sandalwood shave soap I use.

    She is SO wrong! The truth is that I"m addicted to the entire experience, from the pre-shave shower all the way to the decision about what ASB and cologne to use.:signs136

    Really + 1 on the other Ken's answer.

    If we go out in the eveing, or someone comes over I will shave again. My wife says I don't need to. But I want to! For the first time I enjoy shaving.

    Of course I "have" to shave for work the next day.::angelic004.

    I do however "tone down" the shave. Using a Tech and a mild blade, no ATG that sort of thing.

    I have done it in the past, but I can't any more--my skin is too sensitive.

    3-4 times a week I have to. I do a 2 pass shave in the morning and a 3 pass at night when I have more time.

    If I get a few new things at at time I'll start shaving twice a day.

    When I got my latest brush (Rooney 3,1) along with some new creams and aftershaves, I was shaving twice a day for about two weeks. I had to cut it out, but I think I could get away with it.

    When I was in basic training I had no choice. At 18 I had the kind of beard most guys can't grow before age 30. I carried a disposable razor in my right breast pocket and without fail just before chow each evening my TI would yell, "SlagleRock go shave". And I'd have to shave before I could eat.

    Now that I have a choice I only do it on those "special" occasions. If my wife requests it or if we are having company that sort of thing.

    More often than not it's the 0600 shave that does it for me for a full 24 hours.

    Once a day is plenty for me and my face. Even if I wanted to, I don't think I'd have enough growth in the evening to be able to try.

    Back in the days when I used an M3 every day, I would shave twice if we were going out for the evening or something. No ill effects. With a DE though, the one time I did try it, I wished I hadn't. If I know that's going to be necessary, I will shave WTG-only in the morning and save the serious shave for the evening.

    Besides, I've gotten to the point where I look forward to the daily chore (yes, chore) of a DE shave about as much as I used to look forward to an M3 shave. That is to say, "well, I guess I have to go shave now."

    That's gotta suck! I haven't gotten to that point yet. I still discover new things and enjoy it. Of course, I was a late bloomer. For the first year I didn't experiment with blades or razors which I have just recently started doing.

    Once a day at most for me too. Any more is only tempting the bad things of shaving to happen. :(

    I would if I could, but, alas, there's not enough stubble to shave for a good 24 hours...:(

    My skin is too sensitive to handle a second shave in one day...

    Mine too. I only shave every other day and still my wife still thinks I shave too often... Well, considering I only shaved once a week before starting this wet-shaving journey. :rolleyes:

    Really my beard is ready to shave right after 24 hours....36 hours it is perfect and usually when I can get the most comfortable and smoothest shave possible. I used to shave every other day with the M3 but hated every minute of it b/c of the tugging and pulling during the ATG passes. My face is weird I think?

    I have on a few occasions, but when I do ,its WTG and 1 pass only. Once(just once) I did say after using a slant earlier in the day-my face came out tender, but the velva solved that!

    Never have, but I think I could. I've only been into the DE thing for a couple months, so only recently have improved my technique enough I don't think I'd get too much irritation. I'd never even consider it with a M3. Of course, I'd have to plan it out, use a smooth blade and not go ATG on the first of those shaves.
