I am a daily shaver and only go one direction. Takes me about 7-10 min with lather. Its not the fastest shave, but find it helps me get a good start to the day.

My first shav took an hour and a half. Not shave ready by any means, it was a factory dovo edge. Now after honing with all my skill it takes about 15 minutes including preshave.

I'm told I scare people that shave with straight razors and have done so for years who see my shaving technique as way too fast. Video is ~ 5 minutes with no blood loss :)

Its not the fastest way to shave. But, imo, it is the most relaxing/best way to prep for a busy day.
