    He was bald to begin with! I have tried a couple time to shave my head with a straight, but my hair just grows to dense for even the heaviest wedges to do anything. If I want speed I use a head blade, nifty little invention that works great if I wanna get super smooth I use a DE.

    I have several head blades. What's a DE?

    A DE is a double edge razor.
    Like a Gillette Fatboy or thousands of other similar ones..

    I am still trying to figure out why they do, other than as a way to brag about the ability to put an edge on a knife...
    I prefer to perform my daily head-shaves with a proper straight razor myself
    +1, it successively served to amaze the hell out of many SR newbies, but other than that.. I guess Murray Carter quirky shaving vids are inspiring to some people after all.

    OK, I'm intrigued. I can't imagine shaving my head with a straight razor. The head blades are nice but clog. I like the Power Fusion because it unclogs easily. Will a double edged razor give a smoother shave? I know nothing of them except remember one in my grandparent's bathroom. I don't shave every day, maybe every other or every third day and if there is something better out there I'd love to know.

    Yes, in my opinion a DE will shave circles around the Fusion.
    Closer, smoother and without clogging up while doing so.
    They can be had for just a few bucks on ebay, and the blades are dirt cheap compared to the cartridges.
    Try to find a vintage Gillette, and get some Gillette yellow pack blades and you have some stellar gear for shaving.
    Again, imho that is

    If I have a little fuzz going on I use an open comb style, almost impossible to clog and much smoother then any cartridge razor I've ever used. The quality of the blade plays a huge part in the closeness of shave with DE razors, you can buy cheap wilkinson's or the like at Walmart for a buck or two for a ten pack which will last a month but for a better shave quality blades make all the difference, I like feather blades but some find them to be "too sharp."

    Yeah I agree with you totally. Got a DE for Christmas a while ago and I love it. Shaves way better than any of the modern Gilettes and the blades cost about 20p each
