Anyone else use 2 razors during a shave?
I normally do.
First pass today was with the Timeless .95 OC.
Second pass was the Blackbird OC.
It varies on my mood on the day.
Might be Black Beauty followed by Fatip Piccolo tomorrow.
I always have at least 3 razors all ready to go with blade fitted...just in case I get a dodgy blade 1/2 way through a shave. Can't be faffed changing blades mid-way through a shave...just grab another razor.
It does help to have a few to choose from though.

I often see 2 x DE's being posted in US forums and found it strange but after some explaining I was informed that some users prefer a more efficient razor for 1st pass and milder there after. Similar to those that use a DC I guess...?
I'm way too lazy to do this but it makes sense and when using an adjustable I tend to change settings for each pass. :unsure:

Thanks @Razor Burn that's probably where I first noticed it (US forum).
I do it back to front then I guess...I use the milder razor to knock down the major growth, and the more 'efficient' (aggressive?) razor for the final pass.
I find it a smoother shave that way...and not surprising that a couple of my razors were DC (even my WR2).

It occurs to me that some of you guys haven't thought this through!
You need to have 2 razors (at least) per shave. There's the 1st pass razor...use it...re-lather...use the 2nd pass razor. Maybe rinse and repeat for a 3rd pass...needs 'another' razor.
Guys, you can so justify 'needing' more razors. How can your Missus dispute this real 'need'?
It's plainly obvious that you do, indeed, need a few more razors to be doing this shaving thing properly.
Glad I could help.
