Lowest cost blades

I have been doing the wet shaving for approximatly ten years now and I have shaved with just about everything out there with a blade on it and my beard seems to have a bone to pick with Gillette. As long as I stay away from gillette everything works great. So as you can understand if there is absolu...

This is exactly why I typically have two brushes, incase the primary one breaks down for some reason, all I do is reach in for the secondary one and keep going and then order a new secondary so there is no break in service what so ever.

Four years in and never touched a can of goop or cartridges ever. Don't quite understand why others use them. Never looking back ever, still got to pull out my str8 once again.

Been doing this for four years now and I went through the razor acquisition disorder that aflicts so many of us. After a while you settle on one razor and blade and order a 100 pack of the blades then you start saving the dollars. I have my trusty 40s super speed and it has been doing me proud for y...

Guess I am lucky, very lucky. I learned many moons ago when I started this wet shaving that my skin could care less what I use or if I try hard or not it all comes out perfect. This morning I used my trusty swiss army knife, and it came out perfect (as soon as I learned to keep the blade sharp and l...

Trying to minimize the cost of shaving

So far I have settled on a single double edge razor and a pack of Dorcos (I am working on a pack of 100 that I got four years ago for $8). So far the most expensive thing for me is the cost of the after shave that I get locally for approximatly $5 a month. While I completely understand that $5 is no...

Didn't gillette market a self loading razor many years ago that made use of a notch in the super speeds that hooked to the razor blade and pulled the blade in without ever touching the blade in any way? Might be what Quater Stick needs.

I saw them a few times over at Country Joes Collectible Stuff, although the one that I saw did not have a rose on the top, it was very plain. I agree it was a womens shaver as it sold to a woman however I am unaware of if it was for the under arms or not. My grandma used a man's gilette super speed ...

There is absolutely nothing new about thinner blades, I believe that Gillette used to make a thin blade many years ago but canned that idea. I was told that thinner was better only for those that are lucky enough like me to have a light beard. If you have a heavy one then the thin blades are msot li...

Good information Squire, I never ever thought that a mug could be fitted to a puck, seems sort of backward to me, seems that the puck should be fitted to the mug but oh well thats life.

How low can you go?

I am one of those lucky men with an extreemly light beard that comes out perfect with anything with a blade. I have shaved with: a kitchen knife, hatchette, swiss army knife, ax and a piece of broken glass and it all comes out perfect. Although I will remark after shaving with these things I have le...

Why are Pro Glide blades a better idea then the older vastly over priced Fusion cartridges?

Str8 vs Double edge

Do oyu get a closer shave with a well sharpened and hined str8 then with a double edge? I tend to pick up my beloved Dovo Inox on the week-ends and I find I get a better shave.

Well here are some pointers that I found many years ago when I was new at this.

1) The feather blade is the sharpest of the lot and IMHO the best for thsoe with heavy beards.

2) A Dorco is IMHO the best for those of us like me that have light beards.
