    first pass got a good close shave and the second pass felt like I was using the spine, it slide so smooth ! And that tells me two things the guy restoring these blades does great work and I obviously somehow messed up the freshly honed edge on my Böker Red Injun 101 also from him ..
    There are some areas that need improvement but I left that stubble as is to remind me where I missed. Two good passes with this SR equalled four incremental passes with my beloved DE.

    It sounds like a very successful second shave. Good job! And leaving the stubble as is was something I did, too. And I like that trick, because the satisfaction you'll feel when there is no stubble after your first really close shave is incredible.
