I went back to my old 2 blade Gillette from the 4 or 5 blade versions I think which is called the fusion (I've lost count now). Honestly, it gives me the exact quality of shave than the more expensive newer models and actually does a better job above the lip and under the nose because the blade is not as wide. No, it does not have the trimmer attachement on the blade but those don't work that well anyways. I get less frequent skin irritation from the two blade version and are cheaper to replace and last just as long. Even buying in bulk from costco the Fusion blades are still expensive.

Rant over.

I think I'm using a 4 or 5 blade razor right now, but I can make each cartridge last at least a month, easily. I always meticulously dry the blade when I'm done with it so rust doesn't pit the blade. Also, after a month or so when a blade cartridge is starting to feel like it's dragging on my skin, I can get another week out of it by using my forearm as a leather strap. I place the blades onto my skin near the underside of my wrist and push it up toward my elbow with moderate pressure -- with he blades pointing backward of course. This seems to knock any jagged edges down.

Yeah, I wonder if in ten years, 8-bladed designs are what they tell us we need to have!

I'm using a two, but I'm out of refills and the handle is getting a bit old. I'll be looking for a new system and I wasn't even sure I'd find a lowly two-blade.

I was on travel for work a few weeks ago and realized I had forgot my 3 blade razors at home. Bought a pack of 2 blade razors (5 per pack) for $1 from the dollar tree. I have much less razor burn around my neck area now... Now quite as close of a shave but much less irritating to the skin. I think I'll stick with 2 blade razors for now

In my case it’s only because work says so.

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've never tried an electric razor before, always used two blade throw-aways.

I can't use an electric with a beard & mustache... can't get close to the edge without it yanking hair out.

Shaving sucks.

I'm perfectly happy using Mach 3 and Mach 3 Turbo blades.
