To be honest, I like the 2-blade razors the best (Gilette Sensor - My road blade. I'll never give it up). I think I get a better shave, less irritation, and it can get into the hard to reach spots like under the nostrils easier. I know the 4 blade razors have the opposing blade for that, but for me it's not as good.

I will never scrape a razor across my face ever again, electric is the only way to go. Rotary at that since I find they work better when you often go a few days w/o shaving like every day off though they don‘t shave quite as close a foil ones.

I can't scrape a blade across my skin. I'm a sensitive fellow. ;\)

I find the foil shavers are almost as close as a blade shave and for me, much less painful.

Yeah, I've never used anything other than a foil shaver. Those who complain that it can't shave a 2-3 day growth well should use the technique of running the trimmer over the longer growth to get the whiskers down to the size where they can fit through the tiny holes in the foil head. Then use the foil shaver to get a very close shave.

Excellent timing. My electric razor will not hold a charge anymore and using it with the cord is cumbersome. I wasn't even going to replace it actually as I have never owned an electric shaver that shaved even remotely as good as a blade. I am however intrigued that the foil users above seem very satisfied. The only foil version I ever used was a borrowed one of my Dads one Christmas. Perhaps it simply suffered from a bad foil from the factory but at only a week old, it seemed to randomly pluck out a hair every 10 seconds or so. Just painful enough to be Extremely annoying.

In any case, if foil is actually the answer, mind if I ask you recommended make & model?

edit, for the record I am happy with my Fusion but not with the price of blades. It does absolutely nothing for me to justify the cost but the handle was a gift from a proud wife so I just stock up when I seea good sale.

Andrew, I'd suggest the Braun shavers in general, and this is the one that I use and can recommend.

I would recommend the Braun as well. When my last Braun died, I tried a Remmington (it was cheaper). It works as well, but the cap that holds the foil seems to pop off at the most inconvenient times. The long hair trimmer on the Braun also worked better.

I also went to a model that can only be run from the battery, not the power chord. The battery also seems to die at the most inconvenient time, like when I'm late for work and half way through a shave...
