I tend to agree with that in general terms. It also depends on the type of steel. With some of the older blades, they don't stay sharp as long, but they are easier to sharpen and maintain. With the newer stainless steel blades, they seem to stay sharper longer, but they are harder to sharpen. It also depends on your beard and the number of passes you make, etc.. Really hard to put a number on it. With a rotation of blades, you could go years between honings.

I am incurably convinced that the object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.
