- I've just shaved with one of these…
I went through a phase of looking for a really close shave and spent a while using an old school safety razor. Gave you a nice shave if you put enough time into it, and the blades were cheap, but I’m a lazy bastard at heart and soon reverted back to the Mach3s. So much quicker and less chance of a knick.
Since then I’ve given up shaving altogether and I’m attempting to grow a beard.Posted 3 years ago
Tried them when moving away from cartridge type razors, found them terrible.
In true STW style I went for an old fashion style safety razor with disposable blades, should have done it years ago. After the small initial outlay it becomes crazy cheap and a far better shave. I got brave after more than a year of using it and upped the closeness to halfway off full, doubt I’ll need a shave now until later afternoon. With cartridge and disposable razors I would get from morning until lunch time.Posted 3 years ago

Haha, that sounds like me. What DE razor did you go for? Merkur?
Pah, that’s nothing…
My face is like the Golden Gate Bridge – by the time I’ve finished my chin my lip is already sprouting again – I have start over

…and I am shocked by how good it was. The razor is very light so I had to be careful not to press down too hard, and it took quite a few passes. But, no irritation and a nice close shave. Better than the expensive Wilkinson Sword Quattro/Mach 3 blades I usually use.
If they weren’t such a waste of plastic I’d be tempted to use them all the time.Posted 3 years agopymwymisMember
No one using a cut throat ? On the basis that I can’t be bothered to shave more than once a week and I’m self employed so I can get away with it, I discovered a long time back that this was the way to go. One pass to get through the majority of longer hairs and the second to get everything just so.Posted 3 years agoTurnerGuyMember
I use Hydro 5 with the stupid lube strip removed. It’s the only one that you can totally get rid of the strip and the plastic that holds it.
I find the shaving soap/oil is very important. Any recommendations?
I find the hydro 3 a bit better.
I leave the strip in and use the green king of shaves saving serum, not the gel. Seems to work well and compliments the strip gel so I use less when the strip is new.
I tried the stuff that matches the strip (nivea?) but didn’t like it.Posted 3 years ago
