    I am sure there are many bearded hipsters on TSR, and others will use electrical devices to trim their cheeky (and chinny) follicles.

    For some of us, however, only a wet shave will do..

    But the cost of razor blades is absurd! It is a crime. They cost pennies to produce and yet you can get a bottle of wine for the same price as a pack of blades.

    Does anyone have any good, sharp. long lasting copy cat blades that won't break the bank or add to Gillette's obscene profits??

    Interesting. It looks like it may need a bit of skill to avoid cutting your throat!

    The arms race in the major razor market has been crazy. They added an extra blade every year and then there so many they had to add another on the back to reach the areas all those blades couldn't reach.

    You can get a little motor to vibrate the six, seven, God knows how many blades. There is a little ball now to rotate the blades.

    Less is more!
