After two years of being a hobby shaver, I've settled on a three pass process that works to produce a quality shave and find that it works as well using a Feather SS Shavette/well honed straight as a Schick Krona. Pass One: Shave with the grain on the whole face or where you usually shave Pass Two: Shave with the grain again. Pass Three: Shave against the grain on the whole or part of the face you normally shave. Use a good wet lather Use minimal pressure. If you decide to try this out, please report your experiences.
