I started shaving in 1969. Back then, there were no 10 bladed, bbattery powered, aloe strip plastic razors of the future. No, you had a piece of steel that opened at the top. You droppe a two edged blade into it, screwed it shut, and put Barbasol on your face.
There was a learning curve. At first you would leave the bathroom with dots of tp all over your face to stop the bleeding.
As you improved, you learned to make 2 passes for a baby smooth shave for that hot date.
I am done paying for plastic razors. Once again I shall relish shaving like a man. Shicking it to the man, one shave at a time.

Tim Leary easily brainwashed by a television commercial featuring Rick Harrison from Pawn Stars as the spokesman.

A piece of made in USA steel in my hand... my. Old friend, Barbasol beside me... (sorry, it takes long enough without using a fancypants shaving mug...) no more plastic to the landfill... and a shave that is 100% closer.

Cool video! Actually, the old American made classic safety razers are nearly impossible to find and are bringing high prices on ebay. I scoured Eries second hand stores and came up empty shaving handed. I may have located a source, but won't say where till I have mine. And I ain't payin no 44 bucks for it.
Actually the japs make the sharpest blades. They are called "feather". Katana sharp!

I used to catch my girlfriends and ex watching me shave. Ii didn't get it back then, but it is an inherently sexy and masculine art form.

Here is a better idea for you stupid. Get yourself a straight razor and then slit your throat and then your wrists to make sure. You then will finally have some worth as Satan's butt buddy Good riddance.

Shaving the labia on your face would be a better idea. Wouldn't want Rush Limpballs getting brushburns on his caulk.

Hate to break this to you, but it is obvious to anyone that reads what you post that you need psychiatric help. I think the problem is you want us all to hate you as much as you hate yourself. I don't hate you, I pity you. Get help please. Don't put it off any longer. And I know you hear this from people around you too.

it also occurs to me that in the years I've been reading your posts here, not once have I read a happy, positive comment from you. We would all love to see you turn into a positive, happy poster. I'm here when you want to talk.

I'm glad these hateful little turds have nothing in their lives except Topix. Better sitting in front of their monitors instead of out in the real world, where I would have to deal with them.

And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall be put to death. Leviticus 24:16

"Golden Arrow"

(This prayer is said to have been revealed by Jesus Himself to a Carmelite Nun of Tours in 1843 as a reparation for blasphemy. "This Golden Arrow will wound My Heart delightfully," He said, "and heal the wounds inflicted by blasphemy.")

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most mysterious and unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in heaven on earth and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ in the most Holy Sacrament of the altar.

Target. But I still win against the man. I only buy the chinese steel razor once. I can get American blades easily. Instead of continuously buying chinese made platic ones that cost too much.
I win. They lose.

The saftey razor I bought cost 20 bucks. A pack of blades that will last me a month is about 6 buchs.
I can't afford a top end Merkur safety razor, made in Germany. You can pay over $200 for an adjustable one. The Mercedes of rzors.
Blades are altogether another story. Differnet blades are available locally, but they are medium to low quality. And different blades work bettter for different faces. Mail ordering in quantity is the best route.

The Target razor (Van Der Hagen) came with 5 blades made in Solingen, Germany which are outstanding quality. Unfoortunately I didn't see replacemeent packs.
