    Disposable Razors

    So I'm about ready to go to the old school double edged "safety" razor. I bought a bunch of twin blade budget razors fr,om Amazon and they stay reasonably sharp for 4 or 5 shaves and cheap as fuck, but if I skip a day then they clog up easily and I spend most of my time trying to get the stubble an dead skin out from between the blades. I found some BIC single blade razors that might do the trick, but every thing else had lube strips, 5 blades, pivoting heads, bluetooth, you name it. I don't need any of that shit, just a good blade that I can rinse out the stubble with ease...I know first world problems.

    Any other options than the BIC razors?

    RIP PBB

      I have one of the old school double edge razors and it works well simple wash and it’s clean. I like my occam single edge better though more expensive but cuts better and easier to clean. Get yourself a good soap and a brush to. Makes more of a difference in comfort than the razor does.

        Best thing i ever did is put a shaving mirror in the shower..... buddy told me to try it ...and I've been doing it for years like that... I get no razor burn or ingrown hairs and my Gillette Mach 3 razors now last forever.. I don't know if it's a combination of the warm water and being able to clean it out better with the shower spray????

        but seriously my razor blades last a long time.... I probably bought my last package of blades about a year ago from Sam's Club...and i still have 3 left

          I have had decent luck with Harry's Razors. However, a friend of mine just started this: https://caisson-shaving.com/ so I may give it a shot.

            I haven't used soap or shaving cream since I was a teen. I just shower, then while my face is still wet, I shave. No razor rash, no ingrown hairs.

              Sometimes I'll shave in the shower, but I don't have a mirror in there so I have to touch it up at the sink afterwards. I am able to keep the schmutz out from between the blades better with the more forceful water stream from the showerhead. Maybe I'll get me one of them shits.

                As an infrequent shaver I just keep an old toothbrush around and clean out my twin blade razor with it as I am shaving. Works real good on the twin blade disposable bic's I've been using lately.

                  I have been very happy with the razor subscription I uses. I get blades every other month for like $5

                  Dollar Shave Club is who I get them from, they last me a couple of weeks each blade shaving like 3 times a week.

                  Very much recommend

                      Before I decided to stop shaving, I started using safety razors, stopped all of the irritation. I also started using some kind of shaving soap/butter a friend had given me. Shaving gels and creams did not work for me.

                        Bic single blades do just fine for me.

                            I hate shaving. After 10yrs with a Braun cordless electric, I switched to twin and triple blade razors. The triple worked well, but since the cost of twins is that much cheaper I use them. Yes, they clog.

                            Underneath my jawline, the beard grows left to right. So if I shave left to right I have to make another pass. But if I shave right to left they cut too deep sometimes. If I let it go too long down near my neck, it looks like a Nordic bearded clam on a windswept holiday.

                              That’s what I’ve been using for the last 12 years. I use them once and toss them. I shave in the shower and use the wife’s conditioner. To make your blades last longer dip them in olive oil when you open the package. They will rust and get dull if you don’t.
