    I rotate through my straights but like the rest of my life there is no rhyme or reason behind the order (or lack thereof)

    To help me choose, i have the program on the computer that has all the info on all my razors. One of the colums in this is how many times used between honings. So if i have a hard time picking out what i want that night i go with the lowest used number on the list. Some day im going to have a lot of honing to do.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    I would go with the highest number and decide if it needs honing.

    With your system you may never find out which one holds it's edge the longest.....

    I have around 150 shave ready straights. Lately I've been sorting them into 7 day sets (7 kamas, 7 filarmonicas, 7 clauss, etc.) and rotating a new group in every week.

    I have 5 that I shave with. A couple others just to have. I rotate razor and brush monthly. I rotate through 3 soaps, a different soap each shave.

    I rotate all my razors / brushes & soaps in no particular order and then I throw in a a couple of DE's every once in a while.

    I have ten in my rotation. I switch them out from time to time, when I get bored.
    I also have a few set aside for special occasions. It's nice to have a small stable to draw from.

    I can't believe how many razors I've accumulated in a relatively short time frame. It's excessive and I rotate through perhaps a dozen on a consistent basis.

    All I have to do is open my bureau and root around to find a razor which I've forgotten about. It's almost like a new find at an antique store, or an eBay win! Lots cheaper as well.

    I have 25 razors. I use them all. That's what they're for. No rhyme or reason. Just pick one and get the job done.
