No one can visibly see the difference between a good one pass shave and a multipass shave. But everyone can spot irritation from multiple passes. I'm a night shaver too.
Agreed.That may be true, but as I am the sole judge which kind of shave is up to my standard (and not someone else) I stick to my two pass shaves plus yaw line touch-up, be that with safety razor or straight razor.
Not sure when - or if ever - I had an irritation because of more than one pass.
If something is worth doing, it is worth doing right and I did not toss out razor cartridges several decades ago so that I now recreate the feel of those shaves by limiting myself to a single pass.
But then again, maybe I am too hung up on getting BBS shaves…
