Bye, bye stubble: Shaving

    Well, my electric razor died about two weeks ago, so I guess I'm in the market for a new razor.

    What do you use? Electric or disposable? What brands are tried and true for durability? Did you find that buying a less-expensive model worked for you better than one that was price higher?

    Thanks for all of your help.

    Actually, I don't have a very thick beard at all, but I get a nice shave from a good, multi-blade disposable and Trader Joe's shaving cream.

    Electric. I have sensitive skin in my neck area. I believe it's a Norelco, very good shaver. I also have a Wahl razor for my goatee, which I have had for about 4 years and works like magic.

    I shaved today with my usual cheap Bic razor, and it turned out pretty well despite not having any shaving cream.

    Soap and a Quartro, in the shower without a mirror. Never have a problem actually...just go on feel.
    I haven't used an electric since high school (15 years+)

    Sounds like you're playing Clue.

    I put an 8-horse-power kick start gasoline engine on an EpiLady.

    Now, it's an EpiMan!

    Took a tip from a Patton Oswalt bit and started using a rusty tuna can lid.

    Money saver!

    I use a mach 3 until I run out of the green chemical goop (Edge Gel) I have stocked up. After that its back to using Grandad's safety razor (which are cheaper and work better than the newfangled razors) and good ole shaving soap and a badger brush.

    (I will keep the Mach 3 on hand for the travel kit)

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who uses the shaving soap and badger brush. I have my grandfather's brush (purchased in 1957, according to his writing on the box) and a Gillette Fat Boy safety razor.

    I don't care for using the soap — it can drip too much for my liking — so I use Geo. Trumper shaving cream and Proraso pre-shave. You feel like a million bucks after that.

    Quattro Titanium with the cheapo foamy shaving cream. And Nivia for Men aftershave balm.
