So, I just recently noticed that I had started shaving less and less, not because I wanted a beard, but because my blades were stupid expensive and it was painful to go down to the store to pick up a five-pack for what could buy me great food for three days. Then I checked around and saw the prizes of single blades and was sold immediately. I just got my Merkur safety razor in today, along with 10 blades for around 2 dollars and some shaving soap (I already had a badger hair brush) and just.. wow.
Besides feeling super manly shaving with this pure steel contraption, it was about the closest shave I've ever had. I cannot believe I've been throwing money out of the window like this. The pure steel razor itself looks like it's built to last a lifetime (not to mention you can still buy and use vintage ones from the 50s) and even THAT cost about what I paid for a five-pack of multi-bladed fusion bullshit. If you use these, I strongly urge you to at least look into these, because this is just great.
Anyway, enough ranting. Do you use a safety razor or even a straight razor? Are there any particular brands you like better in razors or blades or whatever. In short, discuss!
Here's the one I bought. It looks very classy, but I should probably get some sort of container for it or something:
