    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.

    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.

    If I had all the time in the world then I might consider it but probably still wouldn't

    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.

    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.
