Awesome! Some folks like to do the touch up thing every couple shaves. It's really only removing hyper tiny amounts of metal (I think green is ~30,000 grit or something ridiculous), and the comfort improvement and consistency is very worth it. Just don't go overboard on the passes on the balsa. In the past, I figured if a little is good, more is better, so went 50-60 laps on each side...yeah, it works, but it made the shaves following that treatment really harsh. Since then I've limited myself to 10 laps, and been happy with the result. If it needs more than that, I hit the barber hone for 5 laps or appropriate finisher, then 10 on green/red again, and usually im good to go. Done right, that should keep you going for a very long time.

Me to wife (truth!): "Does she really need all these Barbie dolls? You only need two to have a conversation. Why so many?"
Wife, not skipping a beat: "It's kinda like your straight razors..."
