By the way, that old dude in the video is right. I've been using his technique to get keep the blade clean and delay the wear on the edge of the blade and it works. It'll add quite a bit of time to your razor.

Yes it does by that description, sorry, my mistake. I looked back at my description, and I overstated the amount of lotion. What you want is first a hot-water face soak, then a marble-plus sized ball of lotion smoothed into beard:


Then cream and shave like always ... had nary a nick in many months.

Good, I'm on board ... because, is there a bigger racket than blades?


Which is the bigger racket?
___ Razor blades

___ Printer ink/toner

I'll also agree the blade on the arm trick works I've had the same cartridge going for a couple months now you just have to do it each time you use it is what I've found.

I just saw this commercial. Anybody have any thoughts on this? It looks great, and way cheaper than buying disposable blades. But is this too good to be true?

It looks like a safety razor with a few more whistles and bells. I bet works fine. I'm sticking with my Merkur though.

I'm going to give it a try. Seeing how much I'm already paying for razors, spending $19 on this isn't a big deal.

This may sound strange to most, but I've never ever used shaving cream, gel, lotion or what have you...
I shave with noting on my skin...
I always shave after taking a bath, that's the best time and everything is nice and soft...
Never had an issue and my skin always look great!

Whoa. My worlds are colliding. NFL world is colliding with shaving world.

I, too, use a double edge safety razor, brush, soap, etc.

This morning I shaved with a Muhle R41, Feather blade, Cella shaving soap, an Omega boar brush, and La Toja aftershave.

I use this service and the razors are quality, cheap and delivered. The videos are pretty damn funny too. Check it out.

It's an old thread, but holy cow, I finally made the plunge to a safety razor, and by golly, I should'a done it sooner! ;-)

Picked this up from Amazon and it works pretty well. So far I've only shaved once, but definitely a closer shave than the Gillette Fusion Proglide Flexball. And 30 blades for like 20 bucks, can't beat that with a stick!

An vagina that hasn't been shaved ever and has a huge amount of hair. Its like a normal beard if you don't shave it for about a year. Except on a girls vagina.

Guy 1: Dude I saw Brittany naked.
Guy 2: Does she have a vagina beard?
Guy 1: Yeah. Yeah she does.
Guy 2: Ew

I bought at least four of these and have been using them for close to a year. I bought many since I liked it so much and thus have backups plus one for my travel bag. It is good I love it and it ends up being much cheaper than any option out there as far as I can tell. The blades that come with it are not too bad, Korean steel.

I recommend getting it

I swear by a straight razor, warm wash cloth and a dab of soap (sometimes).

shaving cream and modern razor blades are a joke.

I don't know how people use those multiple razor blades... three swipes and they're gummed up with hair.

Love my safety razor, much less trouble with ingrown hairs. Got a shavette for Christmas as kind of a practice straight razor, so far I mostly just cut my entire face off. I think I need better shave prep though, really not getting a good glide.

Interestingly the expensive razor emprire is starting to crumble and now companies like Gilette are trying to adopt models similar to dollar shave club to gain back the clientele they are hemorrhaging.

The key is to get a really good blade and keep it sharp.

There's a place in town here that sells, I don't really know what word to use, "reconditioned" straight razors, is that really a thing? Seems like a good way to get AIDS.

2nd time to shave with the new razor, and I think I did a little better. Still room for improvement, but it does work differently than I am use too, so will take a little practice to adjust to it. I have a harder time with the area under my jaw bone, seems to be a little rougher there than say, my cheeks or neck even. Gotta get that angle right!
