Hello Gentlemen,
I was wondering how many passes most of you we shavers do?
Seems like i am the only one who only does two passes: WTG - ATG

There are many Shave nookers that shave with two passes and get great results. I typically get my best shaves with three passes. However with that said some of more aggressive razors I'm done with two. YMMV

Do you go across on your neck area?

Brad, on my face it's easy... with, across and against is simply NS, H, and SN. I do the same passes on my neck, too. On my neck, direction of growth changes considerably, to the point where I found trying to map it gave irritation. Downward, horizontal and upward passes, as with my face, give no irritation, despite the NS pass on the right side of my neck is predominantly ATG.

Me to..
2 passes; WTG, XTG
Sometimes I do touch ups (f.ex. AGT in my moustache area..), but normally I just try to get as good a shave as I can in two passes, and leave it like that.

I rarely go against the grain... With, across, and sometimes across the other direction. But mostly 2 passes, and get a really DFS.

Well, apparently i am not the only one that does only two passes..
The chin is my critic area but at the same time i find difficult to do the across passes over there.
Certain day, the chin ruins an otherwise perfect shave.. I was wondering if is because i should do an extra pass before going ATG.
