    I am with Sammy on this one. I usually only shave once a week and for that I use a disposable cartridge razor. I went the first year after getting out of the Army shaving once a month. I would shave right before NG drill and then grow a beard in between monthly drill. After that year, I just kept the beard full time for about a year or two, then went with a mustache for about 5 or 6 years, and for the past 10 or so have had a mustache and goatee, so that I have less to shave every week. I try not to support the razor industry any more than I have to.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    man, must be nice. If I let myself go unshaven for a whole month, I think I'd have to worry about chasing the squirrels out of it every morning. It gets to be a hassle to shave if I let it go more than a couple of days, which is why I like the electric: yeah, it's not quite as super-close as a Mach3, but I'll have a shadow before lunch anyway, so why not start with one?

    Every 2 to 4 days with a beard/mustache trimmer. My "clean" look is relative, because even a fresh shave leaves me with stubble. And I only do that when I have time to do it on the clock. My skin is too sensative to really shave.

    i tried a straight razor. my beard's too thick. had to go with a safety (double edge) razor. it's much cheaper after the initial cost, and does a better job than disposables. i also use pre-shave oil, and shaving soap with a brush. hard to beat.

    The only thing in the world I hate more than shaving is... not shaving. I used to use disposables or a double edge blade & holder but I bought a Braun 'cleans itself' electric a few years ago because I got tired of all the blood.

    Mark me down for 'other'.

    I love my norelco. Sometimes at the end of the day people asked me "did you shave today?" cause it doesn't get as close, but it's fast. I don't have time to use shaving cream and a razor in front of the sink or in the shower every day. I can shave in the truck on the way to work. Or when I'm laying in bed thinking about how I don't want to get up.

    I use braun electiric (the one that cleans the razor). Works great. Quick and easy, plus have never had much luck with other razors getting a good shave. I have to shave every day as my beard grows quite fast.
