Young people are starting to workout spending £20 on box of 8 blades is a bit of a rip off [spank.gif]

Safety razors are starting to make a come back. :think:

A friend son spent an evening chewing my ear off with questions on this issue. It's one of those subjects I'd never really given any thought too. Like most men around my age (29 and 3/4).....I've been using the same razor since my teens.

I buy my razor blades online once a year for round £10 for 50 and way too much on shaving oil and soap.
And you will need a bottle of Barbicide too. The last time I picked some up was around 5 years ago. :blush:

Environmentally.... are cartridge shavers like gillette fusion worst than the old safety razors?

The blades still come in plastic boxes, but overall there less packaging.
Shaving soap and oil all come in plastic containers.

Shaving with safety razor takes longer than cartridge shaver. I cant see people under 30 spending 20 mins of there day just shaving :think:

I went electric shortly after I was put on warfarin, after a couple of runs to A&E to stop various bleeds, which I couldn't stop. We thought it was a good idea.

It's OK it's nor perfect and certainly not a smooth finish, but It does save our A&E some unneccesary work.

I had the same problem in my youth: always cutting myself to bits :blush:

After swapping over to Treet blades and a adjustable safety razor the problem stopped.
The treet blades aren't has sharp as the feather blades I use now... but they still give you a close shave.
My old Parker adjustable razor means I can turn it down, ever using this over 3 yet.

See how much a adjustable razor is online and give it a go. [thumbsup.png]

""I had the same problem in my youth""

Sadly, mine was a problem of wrinkles, scars and general usage.

I am used to the Braun now...and it is very quick!

I knew it was a mistake looking at new razors online [9n5.gif]



These cost $400 or £298.84 :shock:

Do I need an over priced new razor :think:

We all know the answer to this one :blush:
