    Been a Gillette guy forever, what's better?

    I don't wear Nike, and I'm about to stop shaving with Gillette - my last cartridge is about wore out.

    P&G just had to write off $8 BILLION in Gillette value - due apparently to their "woke" ads. I'm having none of it, either!

    So what say ye merry Gentlemen, what's your preferred shave?

    I use the three blade disposable razors. Electric razors are useless for me as I can never get a close shave. The BEST shave I ever had was from a barber that used a straight razor. I didn't have to shave for a week. Would of loved to train myself to shave with one of those but I didn't want to hack my face to pieces.
    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

    I use an old school double edge razor, shaving soap and badger hair brush.
    Merkur blades for the razor, they seem to last longest for me.

    I use Gillet disposal razors because I don't want to spend $20+ dollars on three razors. I buy the Gillet disposable blades buy the bag. Works for me.

    When a teenager, used a Norelco. Worked fine. Later tried a Remington. Not so good. Then, started using Gillette Trac II. Worked well till accident in 1998. Burned. After recovery, only able to use electric on my face. So ... back to Norelco. Now 20 years since accident. Can use a blade a couple of times a week. So, use one on Saturday night so that on Sunday morning my face will not be red. The five blade Harrys give me a extremely good shave even on the part of my face where the skin is still very sensitive. Affordable ... always nice to get a good price! For whatever reason, the five blade razor works better for me than anything else I've tried by any manufacturer. Sincerely. bruce.

    Well, quit shaving. Just got old and tired of the same old routine and did not matter what I used, electric not close enough, blades agitated skin. Been two years since shaved and have been extremely happy.
