That kind of flies in the face of the old you have to let the blade rest stuff doesn't it? Not that I put any stock in that in the first place. I had saw that post too and wondered why you would do that.It's not what you know, it's who you take fishing!

No way, sir, and I'm fairly on the OCD side of the spectrum of behavior. But, maybe my stubble is wimpier than the average.Advisable to before the shave

Nope, not OCD enough for that just yet.

Have been palm stropping between passes for quite a while now. Don't know if it makes much of a difference, but sure as hell makes you keep your eye on the ball...

I also palm strop after I've shaved one half of my head. I do about 20 laps on the palm before lathering up the other half of the ol' noggin. I believe it does improve the shave."The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes."

Maybe I'm not doing something right. If i have to strop between passes or from left to right I'll go back to the hone. Something aint right.

Some razors benefit from a strop pre ATG others no. Try it with yours & see.Honing ain't rocket science. It's more like quantum entanglement.
