Pinochet is an idiot

I have been using exclusively safety razors with shaving soap for over a year and I really really do not at all miss multi blade modern razors even a little bit. I occasionally have to use one in the field for work as a soldier and I tell you I really miss my safety every damn time. So much the better shave. Takes a few minutes longer, maybe 3 or 4 tops, but I feel more proud, like I put something into it. Like building your own deck or shed. There is something artisanal about the process and I come out feeling smoother and my skin feels more fresh, as though there was never hair there to begin with. So really, you save a fortune on razors, you learn a skill that makes you feel like a real damn man, you look like a boss and fascinate women. For real though, women are blown away by this shave. My girlfriends and liasons have all been just riveted to my ablution routine. Your face feels all the better when you are done and you come out all around a winner in the end at the cost of maybe a few minutes of prep time a day, which... honestly I think is more from me using specific soaps than anything. What I like to do is use a good soap like Kent, Prorasso or Razzorock. Use a mug to lather in with a badger brush, do not do this on your face... I know there are people who do but... come on. Apply generous amount to all undesired hair. Shave AGAINST the grain first. Rinse and then repeat with the grain this time, two quick shaves should take more than 10 minutes with perhaps a few minutes of soap prep and a rubbing of after shave lotion. Oh, definitely use lotion. Best shave of your life. I assure you, as an army guy who is required by law to shave every day... this is the bees knees.

Better Than Mach 3!

I only used this razor once, but I love it. First, you can buy replacement cartridges for about .17 cents! Second, they give a shave that's just as good at the Über-Blade Mach 7,000 razors. Third, the head unscrews from the handle which makes for an incredibly easy cleanup. If you don't know how to use a safety razor. Do a little research online and enjoy the benefits of an old-time shave. By the way, nothing makes you feel quite as manly as shaving the way your grandpa did.

Love it!

This safety razor is built like a tank! High quality with silky smooth operation. Feels good in the hand with it's longer handle. This is a great choice , especially if you want a classier look.

Excellent for the money

I purchased this razor a year or two ago. It is not the best of such razors but it is a good intro into shaving with a safety razor. As long as you practice and use quality shaving cream/oil it does a great job. I am very pleased with my purchase.

A Smooth Shave

I bought this razor some two years ago. I had gotten tired of paying excessively high prices for modern disposible blades. When you hold the razor at the proper angle and shave both with and againist the "grain" you will get a shave very close to modern multiple blades. The only down side to this razor is that you have to take it apart to remove a used blade and put it back together with a new one in it. It is not difficult but you definately have to pay attention while you do it.

Feeling nostalgic?

I don't know what I was thinking. I learned to shave using a straight razor and eventually graduated to a modern disposable. Apparently I forgot why I switched to a modern, more technologically advanced razor. I switched because I got a closer, more comfortable, more efficient shave with a multi-bladed razor. But for some reason I just had to go old school. That was a $23 reminder. I wouldn't recommend shaving with a safety razor. (or straight for that matter) And I wouldn't recommend plowing a field with an ox-drawn plow. We live in the 21st century. Take advantage of the technology.
