What kind of razor are you using?

What are you using for a razor? I have been using the Gillette Fusion for awhile now but I am sick of paying $15 for 4 blades! It gives a very smooth shave but I got to think there is something just as good for cheaper. I tried some double blade disposables and I don't think they give a good shave.

All the blades are getting expensive. I think the Mach 3 was $45 for 20 or 24 blades last I bought them at Costco.

I have my grandfather's straight razor. Iros Keen, I Rosenbaum, keep it in my office. Maybe I'll get it honed and give it a whirl.

 

Looks like the one with the lighter handle

You better take care of that tremor first.

You won't look back...mine is my grandfather's too...it's a nice ritual, I used to hate shaving, now I actually enjoy it.

i actually got a pretty nice straight razor from RW as a gift. Thought for sure I'd cut my legs off using it. Was surprised at how easy it was to get used to. Only a few knicks. Certainly the closest shave I've ever gotten. Legs were super smooth!

 

Unfortunately I've not been able to find a decent strap to sharpen it on... so am back to using one of the Schick razors for chicks. Forget the name off the top of my head.
