I have been doing 2-passes on the cheeks for about a week. The end result, while some of the beard is going down the drain, the remaining stubble is still pretty thick. One pass WTG with my DE will leave less stubble. I have checked the blade angle and that looks good.
I have ordered a pasted strop from Tony, so I was thinking a few passes on the various pastes to touch up the edge. FWIW, the razor does not pass the HHT, in fact it takes a fair amount of effort to cut a hair held across the blade.
Given this background, what are some suggestions of other things to try?
