I've been method shaving for two years now. I talk to CAR consistently and enjoy the information. One thing he always says is how fast method shaving is, and how he's in and out in 10 minutes. This is and has been completely impossible for me. The fastest I've been able to complete a good shave is 20 minutes. And I can go as long as 40 minutes when things aren't going well (it's rare). I would say 20-25 minutes average. So, I'd like to know how long it takes you guys to shave. I'm talking about the whole process, starting from soaking the cube and brush until you apply the moisturizer to the finished result. Here's my process(in minutes): 0-3 Soak the brush/cube, lather, paste, etc. 3-10 first/second pass going N-S. This can go as long as 15 minutes if I've skipped a day or two, or if I get caught trying to clear a certain area. i have certain trouble spots where it's just crazy hard trying to clear it. 10-17 second/third passes 17-23 trying to perfect the shave. Sometimes, the passes won't do anything to my "trouble" areas and I have to continually redo those spots. 23-25 water down and finish About the youtube videos, I never can shave that quickly. He just swipes one long swipe for each pass and he's done. No way, I have to use short, little swipes repeated 2-3 times for each of his long swipes.
