Call me crazy, but I'm kind of put off by the idea of using a blade more than once or twice before I toss it out (mostly because my skin is sensitive and tends to break out at the sign of any dirt/bacteria near it). Some (most?) people seem to keep a single blade much longer, however. I'm guessing that's mostly for economical reasons, but I figure that spending ~$.40 every two or three days is an okay price for shaving with a DE safety razor when compared to the much more expensive multi-blade cartridges. My question, however, is this: Do some blades actually give better shaves if you use them more than once or twice? So far, I've only used two blades (A Merkur and a Red Personna) and found both of them to be less than enjoyable, but I've only used them for one shave a piece. If I give the blade a second chance, will I have a better experience the second time around?
