    Ok all you shavers out there, how many blades in your razor? Or do you use an electric? I recently went back to single edged because those double edge things get all clogged up.

    Mach 3 - best I have used.

    I believe this was covered a while ago and somebody commented saying that the Schick 4 blade wasn't as good as a standard three blade. I thought that was pretty weird. :confused:

    Mach 3 turbo, I've been meaning to try the mach 3 power, just for the gimmick value, but it's kind of pricey.

    I think 3 is the magic number, 2 blades ain't bad, but 3 is way better, 4 is too much though, and 5, is way off.
     
  5. I own a Mach 3 and a Quattro, currently using the Quattro most often.


    I've never even used 1 or 2 bladed razors...I started shaving roughly around when the Mach 3 had just came out.

    Norelco electric razor. Don't ever dog electrics if you haven't tried a Norelco.

    +1...Except they sent me three. I haven't yet worn out the first one, shaving once a week, so I'm good.

    Panasonic ES8023 shaver. World's fastest shaver, over 13,000 RPM. Works better for my face and head than any blade, except a straight razor.

    That has got danger written all over it. :D


    I wish I could use a electric razor, but they chew my face up and they did a horrible job when I used to use one.

    I totally agree with the straight razor though, nothing has ever shaved me as close as a straight razor. I wish I could afford to shave like that all the time.

    I use Mach 3 because it came out when I started shaving a lot and I never stopped.

    Want to send one here? I wouldn't mind something that gets a closer shave. Right now I'm using an electric, but it ain't a great quality one. On the plus side, it doesn't mangle my face like cheaper shavers do, but it doesn't have a very close shave.

    Remington Titanium MB 35:
    An adjustable closeness razor for trimming down the big ol bush of a beard I have.

    Remington Titanium R 950:
    For the close shave and cleanup work in those areas where there shouldnt be any hair.

    So, now I only shave my cheeks and neck because I have a beard and moustache. Those multi-blade beasts just seem to clog up on me whereas the single blades clean easily. Guess most people like the 3 blades though. BTW, when I started shaving, 3 bladed razors didn't exist.

    I use a Braun 7526 electric. Good,close shave and it has a cleaning station. It cleans it after every use so every shave is with a fresh lemon scented clean blade.
