So i have been nothing but frustrated with the disposable razors available, i tried them all, mach 3, shick quatro, all that rubbish, the tag line is "Gillette, the best a man can get"........yeah i don't think so. Now about 2 months ago i looked into other options, and from my research i found old school safety razors were supposed to be sharper and better than disposables, and then cut throat razors give a even closer shave. I went out and bought a merkur double edged safety razor for 40 bucks and a pack of Astra blades, and all i have to say is DAM!!!! with a brand new disposable razor what would take 4-5 strokes i can do one sweep and my face is smooth with the safety razor, i really want to try out some other branded blades as i hear they all vary person to person and are all different. And for about $20 for a pack of 100 blades, opposed to about $16 for 3 replacement cartridges on a disposable razor, its so much cheaper now too! I really cant believe what ive been missing! Shaving is actually pleasurable now, before, it would be agony to shave especially my mustache, now its so easy and pain free. Ive heard that cut throat razors are even sharper still, and offer the closest shave you can get, but you need to sharpen them yourself. I might get one soon and try it out, been looking at one that's around $200. what im using: what i want: so what does everyone on here use to shave????
