    I'm guessing Jimbo would just be like Batman when he sees the bat-signal up in the sky... Drop everything, disappear into the shadows, then reappear BBS... Baby Bat Smooth.

    I'm a little late chiming in on this one. I am new, too. I started in early September and it still takes me 40 minutes for a 3 pass, irritation free shave. I'm not a morning person, so I chose to do an evening shave as well. I am still nearly BBS in the morning, but I become a socially acceptable shave by 5pm. This works for me so I can take the time I need to take. Early this week, I tried to rush it and ended up with a lot of stinging and irritation on my neck. I learned my lesson and only straight shave when I have the proper time to devote to it (late evening). I'm sure speed with come with experience. I keep a DE around in case I absolutely have to get it done quickly.

    That's interesting. The angle that I need to hold my razor to get a very smooth shave on my neck is a bit awkward, but then again I've been shaving with a straight razor for less than a week. Anyhow, I've wondered if those curved blades were hype or did they give some advantage. Good info AndrewJM.

    ...been reading about razors so much I'm hallucinating about them. Would have sworn I saw a post about a razor with a smile profile!

    My very first Straight Razor shave was on a Sunday afternoon
    I did all the normal newbie mistakes - lather was too dry, too much pressure, went for full face shave with a cheapie Pakistan razor I thought was sharp.
    Razor burn was painful for sure as were the cuts.

    Then I found SRP and started the journey to learn a lifetime skill.
    With months of learning and patience the skills have become much better.
    Perseverance is the key for anybody into straight razor shaving.
    Every time I shave something else is learned.
    Enjoy the process - it is definitely worth it.

    Never fear chaps, I carry a straight and a mobile strop with me wherever I am. Actually, with the G20 in Bris-vegas for the next few weeks I guess I shouldn't be carrying a straight with me but whatever...

    For those who wondered, in fact I have a reference hair. I had it surgically enhanced so it is exactly the right length, is fluorescent yellow, and stands straight up. So I always know when it is time to shave. Though I have to say I like the idea of a bat signal...

    Yes you can take longer in the evening, but the feeling of going to work straight after a shave is much nicer for me. Yes I get up 20-30 mins earlier to but I enjoy doing it.

    You mentioned getting into bed after a sweet shave. I'm surprised nobody else mentions this. I shave at night and get into bed...I'm married.

    I did in a round about way :<0) Young men being on the chase, want to have a fresh shave when stepping out for the evening. Pleasing the wife is the same thing although some of us found it no help, if you know what I mean.

    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.
