    Hello Douglas and welcome to SRP.
    I fully agree with having a second razor for comparison, possibly honed by the same person.
    When you feel that razor #1 is starting to pull, tug and just doesn't seem right, shave with the second one to feel the difference. You'll know right away. There is no set time for this to happen. Some razors edges last way longer than others. It depends on the grind, the steel and how coarse your beard is.
    It also helps to have a second razor handy for when you have to send the first one out for honing.
    Enjoy your time here on the forum and have fun learning.

    I need to get a couple of razors honed -- one is NOS. The new one is a Henckel Friodur "no stain", which I understand is a bit harder to hone.

    I know that hundreds of members will hone razors for a fee. I just can't find a list. Apparently, there was an active Members' Services page at one time. But there are only 2 posts in it.

    I am sending my razor off to Bayamontate, a member who was recommended to me. I just sent it so when it is returned, I'll let you know how it worked out.
