When one is starting out vs an old bird it’s going to affect time

New driver in a mustang can drive slow cause worried of accident, while someone experienced in beat up proton can be driving much faster.

When there is human involved the issue most likely exist between keyboard and chair

You retarded? An open comb razor will not take longer to shave compared to a razor with a safety bar.
What makes a razor aggressive or mild is dependent on its geometry ie. the blade gap and blade exposure.
It has got nothing to do with whether its an open comb or safety bar razor!

You are clueless as f. Do us all a favor, go back to your hole and play with your plastic razor.

DE user here. Before used those expensive gillet 3,4,5 blade razor..Their replacement blade was criminally expensive.

Then changed to a merkur DE while in uni. Bought at ebay. ,cant remember model already. Black handle, opens like flower.

Also lazy type so just go for hot shower and straight away shave, no rash burn, I dont remember the last time had it. No in grown hair. But I notice my shave is the smootheest if I leave my facial hair lengthen abit.

Definitely cost saving and effective. Been using mine for 6 years and havent change the handle. I dont know there's any reason to change the handle unless I lost it.

Maybe the only improvement Im looking for since a better casing for the handle and razors. Currently just using a small tupperware box when carrying out of town.

used to shave using triple blades but switched to DE as it is more cost effective.

Hi guys

With all the stuff one can buy locally and online (through locally sourced shops) I find it surprising that one can't buy such basic thing as a quality DE razor.

So for, say, a merkur 34c, I have to order it online from overseas? No shop I can walk in and grab one?

Basic? These are niche products bro.

It's not like you can find a shop in every town, in the UK for example, that will carry Merkur razors.

Touche. But I thought there'd be at least some "specialty" shops, you know like those "cigar and pipes" shops etc. But one for highend men's grooming.

I guess I will order one online then. Thanks
