    I do a 2 pass shave everyday, sometimes on Sunday morning I,ll got for the full 3 pass, but as Steel said f my blade us right, there's not really anything to get after the first pass, my second is just a touch up. I do an ATG. For my first, my irritation comes from the blade being slightly dull or my technique. Tc

    I shave 5 days a week but one of those will usually be with the Atra because I've over slept and or don't have the time I need to focus with the SR.

    Me, I don't think I could get by with a single pass using the straight. Gotta do two passes.

    I was working cattle on a friend's farm and tried to use my body to push it into the corral. It knocked me on my butt.

    One pass daily.
    There is nothing to cut after the first pass.

    2.5 to 3 full passes daily here. A single pass just would not knock the grey stuff down enough.

    3 pass, every day but maybe Sunday, which might be a no shave day.
    The hollows in my neck were the most sensitive, (the hair grows like a wire brush that's been run over by a steam roller). But I found that at the right angle of attack, no irritation. Its also the only time I use my non dominate hand for shaving.

    The plumber was visiting last night and this morning so I didn't have a chance to shave today. Hopefully I'll get a shave in this evening for consecutive days of shaving. My plan is to do a one pass of WTG strokes.

    I ended up shaving yesterday evening, making for two consecutive days of straight shaves. The WTG pass was not sufficient. I ended up doing a second WTG pass around the mouth and chin. Spots where the beard is thicker (jawline, hollows of neck) still had a bit of stubble.

    Irritation was minimal after the shave and I have none today. I suspect this is since I only did WTG passes. I'm thinking about trying this again with a different razor to see if there is a difference. The Wosty I used last night is pretty smooth but doesn't have as keen an edge as some others in the rotation.
