    Don't bother shaving my back as it gets used as a doormat when we have visitors.

    Feather Stainless DE blades, approx 18 for 100, 3x shaves per blade = 6p per shave with the sharpest blade you can get.

    Bic disposables (triple blade).

    ... and once in a while I might treat myself to an ultra smooth cut-throat shave by a professional.

    Yep, that's what I use.
    Along with Trumpers coconut shaving cream. It's changed a chore into a pleasure.

    I guess im one of those weirdos that loves the ritual and "pampering" that comes with a properly executed straight razor shave. I have the whole 9 yards, nice buffalo horn straight razor, hone stone, strop strap, nice shaving soap, etc.

    this very one actually



    and I LOVE the AOS sandlewood soap. been my preferred brand for a long long time now!

    nothing like lathering up your face with the brush, taking a hot towel out of the towel warmer, putting it on your face, letting the shaving soap soak in, wiping it off, relathering and shaving,.... so good man. my favorite grooming ritual

    ironically I use a crap razor, and the cheapest shaving foam (latest batch is some bic foam that I bought from pound land) - but I use decent shaving balm...current one is clinique

    Blimey TR! You're making me want to take up shaving again! Completely counter intuitive... I would have had you down as a Gillette 6 blader. This is the grooming equiv' of Vinyl and valves! Are you feeling alright?

    Matt.
    You guys have got me intrigued. Is Amazon about the best place to buy? Its about 20 for a razor and 5 blades. Might have to give it a go
