    For those of you who shave(sorry Big George to exclude ZZTop wannabees :) )

    Haven't found anything better than the Mach 3 yet,but they are getting pricey$$$ for refills(that was the plan-get'em hooked )
    Tried the new Gillette Fusion,close,but not the same.
    Nothing else close.
    Electrics are a dissapointment for me.

    Chime in,whats your favorite?

    Sorry ladies,but I've seen you shave,look like your attacking an anaconda with a machete in the tub"insert square smiley of cook shuddering "

    For me nothing works better then the Gilette Fushion Power. I love this razor. I have tried them all, trust me. Skin is sensitive when it comes to shaving.

    It works great on the face and my head.

    Did ya know that shaving was a sign of wealth days past. Like Bling Bling now.....It was WW1 before it became very common, King G put out all those lil shaving kits for our GI's, and it was for medical reasons not decorum. Lice; an it's a nightmare putting stiches in a whiskered face. The best shave in the world is long gone....it was sitting in the barber chair of a real pro who knew a straight razor. Try a cheaper razor; with a brush an mug soap for lather. Heat softens the whiskers. Lil tip from yer uncle Boots.

    I use the Mach 3 also I havnt had any problems with it unless it was dull. Try shaving in the shower thats what I do and I can get one blade to last 3 sometimes 4 times doing Head and Face. Most of the time Ill do the once over with a cheapo throwaway for my head then I will go back the opposite way with the Mach 3. I dont use aftershave and since Im in the shower I dont need to worry about a towel to wipe off the excess.

    I used my dad's straight razor until I went in the service, then a safety razor. Right after we married wife gave me a Norelco, I liked it. Later she bought my dad one. I couldn't believe it.. after 55 years of shaving with a straight razor, he never used it again.

    Braun electric for me. I used to use a Gilette back in the days when I used to shave the hard way.

    ah, yes...shaving..when i was a lad, i'd watch dad shave with that straight razor and wish i could shave. now i am sick of it and try to avoid it.

    the electric shavers never worked for me. i too have sensitive skin. i tried many, as some of you, and the one that works for me is the gillette tracII. blades are a buck apiece, and getting harder to find. given that price, and the fact that i hate shaving, it is sometimes 3 to 6 days between shaves for me. the wife gets on me about looking scruffy and i then must head for the shaving cream.

    if i shave every day or 2 my skin will look like it has been peeled:sad2:

    while on the subject..anyone besides me run out of shaving cream and find what was thought to be a suitable substitute? trust me, lather from a soap bar DOESN'T work:crazy:

    For those of you that hate shaving, i wold like to possibly be the first to inform you that there is a alternative. Grow a beard--Duh!!!!:0a1: Ya bunch of sissys. Why back in the day we used ta shave with a broken piece of glass, brushed our teeth with sand, walked 10 miles to school, in three ft. of snow, used hot tar fer bandaids, ate pickled skunk fer dinner and we loved it!!!:smile2:

    I use an electric shaver; there's nothing quite like being able to shave in a hurry without having to worry about drawing blood :wink:.

    I used to use a propane torch. Now I simply use a cordless belt sander. :wink:

    Seriously, I too loved the Mach 3. But, if the powers that be want to play stupid with the price, they can play without me. Disposable razors work just fine for me.

    When I used to shave I'd use Aveeno shave cream for sensitive skin from wal-mart, can't remeber which brand of razors though.

    Been using Gillette TracII for years but i havent been able to fid them lately,so I shitched to the funky three blade ones ,in my opinion they aint any better ,just more expensive. But i only shave during the summer anyway so i aint out much money.
