I very rarely shave, usually just use a beard trimmer to keep the stubbel short. On the rare occasion that I do shave, I use a Panasonic.

gillette M3 turbo POWER.

i like the M3 turbo razor and dropped the 12.00 for the power one.
it took two days to get use to the vibration.
after that it shaves close! at or below skin level and very comfortable. single or two passes over an area and you are baby ass smooth.

Why is 'safety razor' not a choice?

On the rare occasions on which I do shave (young and light-haired, so I don't really grow a noticable beard that fast), I just use the head of a Mach 3. No cream or gel, no handle.

I want to get a straight razor, though.

i'd shave with a straight razor if i were confident enough that i wouldn't kill myself doing it. hell, i still cut myself to pieces with my mach 3 on a regular basis

You won't kill y'self with a straight razor. Practice, and take your time. Let it glide along your skin, at an acute angle to the skin surface, and make sure your skin is as taut as you can make it. Make sure your lather is good and hot, and keep reapplying it as you shave. Use a mirror!

Just get a razor with a good edge and keep it sharp. It's the dull blades that cause the problems.......

I'm an 18th century kinda guy, what can I say....

Also, don't shave with a straight razor more than every 24 hours. After shaving, the edge is crinkled, but it will straighten out in about 24 hours.

Mach3 and never looked back. Best razor bar none.

works great for both head and face...

Mach 3 is the only way to go.

Nothing comes closer to the experience of actually flying a jet fighter than shaving with a Mach 3 (or so say the older college kids in my airsoft klan).

Nice and shaggy, and that's how my girl likes it.

a piece of broken glass...dry...and a splash of witch hazel to stop the bleeding


Seriously, I use a Remington electric for half (cheeks, 'stache') and a Mach 3 for neck--neck whiskers won't stand up for the electric to work well

Mach 3. The smoothest, closest shave I've ever had from a conventional type razor. Plus, I have never cut myself with one. The angle of the shaver head and the removable/replcaeable blades are also nice. And the weight of it makes it balance and shave well.

Damn, I just realized I am describing my razor as if it were a gun! Geez. Maybe I am a bigger gun nut than I had thought. LOL.

I use 2 Norelcos, one mounted on each side of my Vltor stock. Get a close shave, and practice strong- and weak-side shooting at the same time!

Had to put my vote in for "man enough not to shave" due to the fact that my wife and I recently came home from a trip to Thailand and I had laser hair removal done on my face and neck. Only had time to go through two treatments, but that got 90% of the beard gone. Next trip/procedure should take it all.

It may seem kind of "girlie" to have this done and not have a beard anymore, but it sure is nice not having go through the daily ritual of tearing my face apart. I do not look good in a beard, and at 43 years old, I am way past any insecurities of not having manly facial hair.

Right now, only 6 strokes with a cheap disposable razor, every other day is all it takes to cut off the remaining small stragglers. My better half really loves the baby smooth skin and no beard scratching her at night!

Gellete sensor. I buy the cheaper no-name brand replacements for it. They do not start out as sharp but they last alot longer.

That's what I have used since I started shaving 11 or so years ago (minus a ~2 year period where I used an electric) - complete with the generic replacement blades you mention. Then, one day I could not find blades, and on a whim decided to try the darn Schick Quattro. I could never go back now - I have tried.

im young but can grow a beared pretty damn fast so I have to shave all the time to keep me looking like a stud
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 4:58:22 PM EST
Electrics just plain suck. Nothing beats a blade, nothing.

I use a Sensor Excel razor. Just two blades, the tripples are too fat to fit into some spots on my face and do not produce an appreciably smoother shave.

Shave in the shower for a more comfortable, closer shave.

I had honestly shaved with a straight razor for many years, then a barber told me he was using the M3 Power instead of the old straight razor... I bought one and it is even closer than the straight razor! But not near as cheap...
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 5:16:13 PM EST
Mach 3 or Shick Extreme, depending on whats around. For cream I ditch the expensive lotions and just use bar soap, its a whole lot cheaper and better then all those fancy aerosol stuff.

As for electric razors, how the fuck can you use those things? They somehow chew up my face, making it look like I have a bad rash, yet they don't cut a single hair.

Get a straight razor. You'll never have to worry about your woman "borrowing" it.

Poulan "WoodShark" 14" chainsaw. Pisses the neighbors off in the morning.

Seriously, Mach 3. I'm a blade man. I've tried several electric razors and they all give me razor burn that makes my neck look like 2 pounds of raw hamburger. I've tried pre-heating my skin, all kinds of foo-foo lotions, etc. None of that shit works for me.

PLUS, I have to shave every day if I use an electric razor, whereas I can get two days (shaving day +1) from a blade.

I like mach 3's but they don't last long enough and 8 bucks for a pack of 4 blades is obscene.

Yup, better than a Mach 3.
