    Just be careful to avoid those nasty Assault Straight Razors. Ever since the ban on them expired they have been running through our streets killing innocent people.

    Everytime I think of a straight razor I picture Clint Eastwood in one of his westerns sitting down and getting a shave. Have no idea why I just do. (Yes, my mind is strange. ha!) Anyway, have no experience with them. My Mach 3 works pretty good so I think I'll stick with that.

    I bought a start razor and tried it a few times.

    Buy a lot of band-aids
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    Ok......I gotta ask. Why?!

    BTW.....not me, for the same reason I don't carry a cap and ball revolver. There are much better tools available for the job.....

    I used to, I would recommend a safety razor though, to limit boo-boos to nicks, instead of wounds.

    There is NOTHING that will shave closer. NOTHING.

    There is a decent selection of safety razor products here.

    The main reason is I thought it would be a cool experiance and I might like shaving that way . Second the price of cartridges is getting outrages.

    One of life's pleasures, I go once a week to let
    my barber shave me, Plus she's a hottie.

    The rest of the week, Mach 3 and they are over priced.

    I thought about it for a while, but it seemed too much like a hobby. Another hobby is not something I need right now

    I was never able to shave closer with a straight blade than a safety razor. They both worked the same for me. Just my $.02
