Saw this video by happen stance Friday and it inspired me to work on my honing this weekend and push my razors more toward sharper. This hone meister illustrates shave ready par excellence. If straight shavers could consistently get razors to this level of shaving , none would ever be for sale in the BST . Smile

Well actually, he does stretch his skin using his head tilts, and mouth opening. His blade is sharp enough to where he's not worried about tugging or skin gathering. I've watched videos where people stretch the hell out of their face; I either take-up the looseness or hold the skin so it will not gather, but I really don't overstretch.
