Default slaves to Gillette...

there's been features in men's mags in the UK lately about shaving with double edged safety razors and just being more 'manly' and saving a packet on hugely price-inflated 5-blade cartridges... anyone here actually doing it? and still alive to tell the tale?

When I started shaving, it was a demon barber job, with one of those cutthroat blade things that folds away into the handle...........

.......... not that I'm old or anything.

Not aware of a 5-blader though - mine's a Mach 3.........

An old girlfriend once asked me to 'shave' her pubes using a cutthroat.......as far as I know, she's still alive.............

There is a 6 blade comming soon (Yes, really!). I think we are already into phase 2 or 3 of the 5 bladed ones with protection strips and handles that vibrate .

I use a Wilkinson sword classic double edge though. It cuts nicely, just uses standard blades and comes in a nice metallic finish. What more do you need?

Mercur and Parker are good as well I've been reliably informed.

I don't bother shaving myself anymore! Just go to the barber's and get them to do it. It's sooooooo cheap out here.

I just look scruffy for a few days. If I'm in the office I have an electric shaver but I prefer to have a cut throat as it doesn't aggravate my skin as much as electric or normal shavers.

where do you get one from? i've heard/read those names (Mercur, Parker...) but never actually seen the item in any shops.

did you move onto it from the modern expensive ones? was it difficult?
