    I was watching a few shave videos today, and started to wonder, with what frequency do you shave?
    I shave just about every day. I skip Saturday because that is my long day at work, but other than that it is usually an every day shave.

    I find that there really isn't much difference to me in the quantity of the shave, but the quality does seem to be better with the extra days growth.
    So, how often do you shave?

    Usually every other day; on a rare occasion a day or so longer.

    Is it due to personal reasons or required for work?

    I like to shave no more than once a day.
    Twice a day only if I gota, it's only happened a few times this year.

    Unless I am tied up with something else, I am a daily guy.

    Sometimes, when I want to use a particular razor, and film it, I'll wait a Saturday. It is like a kid on Christmas Eve.

    I normally shave every other day using a straight. For two days in a row i have some go to straights that just seem to take a better edge and work easier to take off less growth.

    Every other day shaver and hardly ever before noon. I prefer an evening shave with no rushing or time limits. No one inspects my shaves so it's for my own enjoyment. I could shave every day but I like the effect of having a little more stubble to knock down.

    I tried that, however I ended up chasing the baby, and since I can't feel my face while I am asleep, I figured out it was no bueno real quick.

    I shave daily most of the time. Occasionally, I will skip a day.

    I pretty much shave every day. I definitely have to for work, as requirements call for clean shaven. I'll skip a weekend day every now and then.

    As insaI before, I think I get a better shave after a little more than a days growth. Maybe it's just my imagination.

    When I was younger I would skip weekends a lot. Anymore I just really don't like the scruffy feeling, so it's every day, no exceptions.

    I generally skip one of the weekend days but otherwise shave daily. I employ two passes at the most, otherwise my skin wouldn't put up with shaving so frequently.

    On occasion, like I said, I will skip Saturday.
    But it is always with the desire to get it done asap. Anymore, I don like that sandpaper feeling.
