How many blades do you prefer on your razor?
I prefer not to grow unwanted hair.
Straight Razor when home
Double edged safety razor when on the road..
Badger brush, MommaBear Soap, and Proraso liquid cream aftershave.
Shaving should be a joy, not a chore.
I'm not sure how many I prefer. Mine had 3; I haven't seen any with more than that, but then I haven't looked. Being retired I rarely have a need to shave. Who's going to care?
i've done pretty good with the 3 blade.
Blades? Razors? When were they created?
I use one of them new-fangled 'lectric razors - it has three heads, and each head has six or eight micro-blades (I think that's what they called 'em!):laugh:
I love my Remington Shaver!
One. Those multi-bladed razors get clogged up too fast.
I like using my chain-saw, just be careful not to get too close.
I completely went old-school in my shaving routine when I figured out how much money my shaving equipment was costing me every month. I have a fairly heavy beard and I wasn't even getting a good shave. I did a little research and learned that a large number of men have given up on the new "technology" (which is mostly a marketing technology) and have returned to the shaving equipment of their fathers and grandfathers. (See this site for more information.)
- One double-edged safety razor (1950s-style)
- German-made Merkur double-edge blades (much cheaper than the American multi-blade cartridges) that provide an excellent shave. The Japanese-made Feather blades are even sharper, but they tend to lop off the bumps on my face, making a bloody mess.
- fine British-made Geo F. Trumper shaving soap (my favorite is Violet) with a high-quality handmade badger brush (it really makes a difference).
I get very good shaves (my wife prefers my smoother face) and I've saved a fair amount of money. Since I have entered my second year of retro shaving, I'm position to save a few hundred dollars this year since I don't have to buy another razor or brush, and I've just bought my first refill of shaving soap (although it will be about a week before I have to unwrap it... the first bar has lasted more than a year). The blades are trivially-priced. I spent a little over $10.00 for a years worth of blades ordered through Amazon.com.
