Well, Frank's post got me to thinking. A few different safety razors were mentioned.

I've been using a Gillette Sensor for many years and like the shave. But I do wonder if there is something better.

Any of you more adventuresomes out there care to share your experiences in trying different razors? cool

I've tried everything known to the male of the species, and swear by (and still, occasionally, at) the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo. Stupid name, good shave. But, definitely not a cheap shave.

I also used the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo since it was introduced. I recently switched to the Schick Xtreme 3 though I don't think it is any better.

I have found that in the Gillette and the Schick the disposable razors are cheaper than the refills. Does this make sense?

From the frugal corner:

Agreed on the Gillette, but if you pinch pennies like me, try the Old Spice triple blade. Japanese steel, sharpened pretty well - it gives me almost as good a shave, at less than half the price.

lb,

I can't remember which disposable Gillette I was using before the Sensor, but when I tried the Sensor I felt the shave was much better.

Do you think the disposables are better now than they used to be?

I got a free sample of the new Gillette Extreme 3 and think it's very good. Very close shave, not that the sensor that I've had is bad but the extreme's better.

Kinda like getting a piano tuned, y'know :-).

Gillette Mach 3, I didn't notice much of a difference with the Turbo, and didn't think it was worth the extra expense. With so many of you swearing by it, I may have to give it another try.
