The myth of the longer lasting BBS

The Men Who Sniff at Goats
¿Por qué? I find easy ways of overstepping its safety and opening myself up to razor burn and weepers, sometimes with as little as getting lost in a daydream or letter the lather dry a little.

I’m still miles away from a quick enough shave with a barber razor and even further from one that’s quick enough and close enough. And forget overcoming the fear of attempting the same in the shower.

Agreed. The line between an awesome shave and an irritated shave is and can be razor thin, pun intended. :)

I find for myself personally, when I first started ole’ skool wet shaving, I looked for absolute concentration and zoning in on nothing but honing my technique in order to reach some mystical place of shaving nirvana.

After 12 years of shaving with everything from DE to Straights and skillfully applying a master shavers hand, at least to my face; I have come full circle and now look for my technique to be at the place where I can enjoy a mindless shave. :)

Getting a great shave, without thinking about it? Is that shaving nirvana?

I dunno?

BBS is invariably the result of a three pass shave, but by the cocktail hour I feel the stubble. I have zero interest in attempting to shave any closer. That sounds like a formula for weepers and irritation. I never feel unkempt in the evening or feel the need to shave a second time to go out, perhaps a benefit of silvery whiskers.
