I am thinking of giving them a try again, it's been 15 years. Any input on the brand, model, etc.?

I think Remington makes a good product- wonder if there is any relation to the gun/ ammo company.

No relation

I have a Braun and I like it a lot.

I can't use an electric razor. They just don't do it. I use a Mach 3. It's pretty nice.

Electric razors seem to burn my skin. [pyro]

Go with a Braun. They're good shavers.

I use a Remington. I much prefer a blade, but I have a dandy scar on my chin that always gets reopened. Doesn't everyone have one of those chin scars?

I like my disposable gillette shavers. Mach 3 is too expensive and doesn't shave close enough. That Mach 3 thing is a big advertising crock. Next thing you know, Schick will come out with a ten blade razor- stop the maddness!

I've never owned an electric razor. A real man uses his Kabar.

Get the Craftsman multiple shaving blade attachment for their orbital pad sander,It's got a lifetime guarantee.

I used Remington for a number of years, but found the microscreen to be a little fragile. After a while slight rips develop in the screen, allowing the edge of the blade to contact your skin. Let me tell you, it feels like you're pulling hairs out with a tweezer. I then tried the Braun and found it to be a superior product. Not cheap, but a better shaver. In the end I went back to my trusty Atra II because the electrics just take too long and don't shave close enough. The only time I use an electric now is during allergy season when my skin gets puffy and sensitive. My brother has a very thick beard so he uses nothing but electrics because shaving is a nightmare for him.

Be a man. Grow a beard. Effeminate types who can only manage some scraggly peach fuzz are excepted.

Beards are for hippies and Santa Claus. And the guy at the gun shows with the $60 USGI mags.

I used an electric razor a few years ago, when late-puberty was taking its toll and facial hair hit the scene. I started using blades late in high school, and I haven't looked back since. I still have "sensitive skin", or what have you, because I'm young. Nevertheless, electrics don't shave for Sh*t anymore. Blades are the way to go, and will only get better as my face roughens up over the years. Mach 3, definately the way to go. Jewbroni~

Sounds like envy. You know, testosterone shots just might help you grow some facial hair. [:)]

Replacement blades become an issue. I've tried Remington, Norelco, and Braun. My last 3 have been Braun. I can't use regular razor, just rip my face up too much.
