Very happy with all things Harry's except for their shave cream. The cartridges perform better than the Schick I was using at a fraction of the cost. Been using them for last year and a half.

Get a Double Edge Safety razor. $25 for the handle, and blades are about $0.10 each. Aside from a straight razor, that's about as cheap as you can get.

Years ago I started a thread on getting away from the evils of $$disposable$$razors$$ and it turned into a mega thread...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=204542

This past year when my son turned 15 I bought him a Merkur Futur with an assortment of blades and a variety of soaps. He loves the whole ritual in the morning.

So spread the word and start em young!

Thanks RumRunner. Wasn't aware of that thread. I shall indeed peruse it. While "cheap" is good, I also want a quality shave so I guess "cheap-ER" is the operative word. I've always liked the Gillette Fusion cartridges but find the price galling. While suggesting I was looking for a cheaper alternative, I was also inquiring as to the quality of the Harry's products.

Personally, using a DE razor, I get a better shave than I ever did with cartridges. So, cheap doesn't mean bad shave.

I've just got to the point where every few months i buzz the fluff off with clippers.

Shavings a pain in the ass.

Yeah, I think they are talking about shaving the other end....

I, on the other hand, don't have to shave very often due to my Cherokee heritage. I feel sorry for the rest of you.
