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.

    I shaved my head for many years before growing my hair long, and i can agree the head blades are terrible and clog. I used the gillete mach 3s at the time ,. but i was not into DE or wet shaving at the time.

    A DE or straight razor shave on the head or face is supreme in comparison to the more "modern" methods, and more cost effective (if you control the addiction!)

    I personally use DE Razors to shave and have never looked back.

    And to those commenting on the video! he didnt have very long hair but you can hear that its scraping and shaving .. hes probably just going for that smooth glass feel. And again what shocked me is not because its just another knife shaving video, its the LONG strokes he took!! realy scary imo the guy is totally "zen"

    This guy is cool, I give him credit cuz he does what he does and he does it well. I LOVE shaving the nugbone with my DE. 100 feather razors cost me $15 shipped. My 1943 Gillette cost me $6. I have straights as well and got pretty good with them but DE is so convenient and easy just been rocking that lately. Smoothest shave ever.

    That would be a great start for getting better shaves and less skin-irritation
    One little tip if you go that route; Get a sampler pack of various blades.
    The various blades out there can really make a difference when you find the right one for you.
    That said, the Feather blades are top-notch, although some feel they are a bit harsh.

    Maybe I should start a new thread. Got my Gem today. Shaved a third of my face with it. Not impressed so far. My Power Fusion shaved the other 2/3 faster and didn't feel like it was pulling tbe hairs out. Wasn't even a close contest. I'll give the old fashion blade a few more attempts though.
