Prior to the Mach 3, I HATED shaving. Now I merely dislike it. I am not going back to any single or double blade myself.

Did you know that if you keep your razor dry after use it will last a lot longer FYI

You buy this one once:
One of these variations


+
Refil:
Buy about 100 blades of these for $15



+

Good shaving cream
I recommend this stuff, i think its $8 on amazon, but it lasts for a year or more. Use an almond shaped drop, massage into your face, wait a min or two, you'll feel your face cool (methanol) and your good to shave. Made in Italy.



Strangely the cheapest way to shave, as well gives the best shave, go figure...

Your welcome

In a previous life I was forced to shave. When I left that behind, I never shaved again.

I love how Gillette and others way of making things better is to add a new blade - they just update the ads with another blade....

My Gillette Fusion is the best I've used. Single blades are for those with peach fuzz. If it works for you, go for it.

I'll spend the money for what works best and the blades last longer that people think.

Nothing cuts through my Fidel Castro facial hair like a Gillette. And that first shave with a new blade? Orgasmic.

I got a Fusion for Christmas and just tried to use it a week ago.
Errrrrrrrrrr ... what am I missing here? The angle was goofy or something. I couldn't even begin to shave with the goddam thing. I felt like I had a wild animal gnawing at my face and that I'd cut myself to shreds.
I put it away and went back to my Bic disposable.

I love the ease of an electric shaver and my Norelco does a really nice job but in the summer I like the closer shave of a blade for some reason.

2 years ago I bought a box of 40 of the disposable version of the mach 3 at sams or costco for about 17 dollars, I should be covered for about 5 more years, at which time I will find another deal on some kind of disposable razor

it's funny that the throw away version cost less for the whole thing than you pay for the cartridges for your handle

and I shave with plain old soap

Razor blades last a long time if you shave in the shower.

I can finish furniture with my stubble.

I take my time to shave.

Single razor for me.
