A few weeks ago on a trip, I left my razor in the hotel. GRR. This only matters because I've never been one of those Mach 18 blade razor type guys. I've had a Gillete two-blade razor forever. I've only ever used that style of razor. Well, I went looking and could only purchase one of the new 5, 6, 18 blade razors (and, of course, spend 20 quid on the razor and £50 on the refills.
So, I decided that I'd take this as an opportunity to by a saftey razor. Yep...one of those old-fashioned razors. I actually bought this one from Amazon. After a week of using it, I really like it. I'd recommend to anyone to switch. Sure, there's a different style and technique to get used to...but once you do, it works great. I even feel like I get a better closer shave with it than my old razor.
