I returned to old faithful double edge safety razor. The reason I switched back is because the continuous upgrades and the astronomical prices for blades and I find the latest technology has made a razor that shaves so darn close it takes the first layer of hide off. I did splurge and bought a MERCUR RAZOR. I find it hard to located the Gillette brand razor blades. So I have been experimenting with various brands. Mercur is an excellet blade but a little pricy. There are several other foreign made blades under the gillette patent, but the quailty is less than. I always try to buy "made in America."
Since I started using a safety razor again I have used Merkur, Lords and Wilkinson blades. These are better than any of them, cost less and are American made. What could be better! The dispenser is even a better design.
I use these in my Barber Razor (aka Streight Razor you can change blades).I can get 60 shaves out of these bad boys. 60 for $3 vrs the 15 shaves I use to get out of the Mach 3's for $13, Guys switch to a barber razor. Its a better shave and will cost you less money.
