robint posted a topic in Make do and mend - What are your cost-cutting tips?Gents, do you have a strong beard growth? Are you fed up with the cost of disposable razors - as I am? They don't seem to do a good job for long. Well try going back to the good old Gillette 3 piece Safety Razor and razor blades. I found it a remarkably clean shave in comparison (its what I started with). I got 20x5 packs blade for a fiver Ebay. A blade can last a week, so thats 2 years worth. I bought a 2nd hand original Gillette blade holder for £3 Ebay. IMHO don't be tempted by the cheap charlie new ones, made of alloy with a steel screw, already rusting. Tip, get in the habit of turning over the blade before starting. The blade gets "stropped" by your skin. This way your blade last 2,3 times longer This isn't just about saving money for me, it is about getting a decent shave.
