I am convinced i'm part of the missing link gene family. I can grow a beard in 3 days as well. In a week i'm a lost member of civilization.
I have the old school shaving utensils, but i use a mach3 turbo (the vibrating one) most of the time. I use the old school way for dates, etc.
But i can kill a razor cartridge in 2-3 shaves.
most of the time i use sheep shears, just way easier.
