When I shave with a shavette or a straight razor, I do a two pass shave, one with the grain and one against the grain. For me, this two pass shave works for me. I don't require a BBS shave but a smooth and comfortable shave and a two pass shave gives me that with a straight razor or shavette. On the preshave note I use a hot towel. I have found that the hot towel works best for me to help prepare my whiskers and face for the shave. This is the eighth shave with the Feather Professional Artist Club SS and it has been easy for me to adjust to shaving with. More on this shavette in future shaves.
