    Any one like harrys razors ?

    ^ I tried the long sweeping strokes, and it just left way too much behind. Perhaps its the stiff, gray scruff I'm now growing, which is coarser than it was 30, 40, or 50 years ago. - I remember shaving with the Gillette Slim-Twin, Astra, Trac-II, and the horrible Schick-O-Matic, or whatever...

    I'd like to find an electric shaver that gets good results for me

    I've tried a LOT of electrics over the years, from the ubiquitous Remington, several different Norelco rotaries, and several other foil razors. The only one that I kept using for any time, and even bought the newer version of, was the Panasonic Arc series, with each version noticeably closer...

    Any one like harrys razors ?

    Used them a couple times as a travel razor, and with some work, it gives a decent shave. Just took a lot more strokes than one of SE or DE razors....lots of short fast strokes to get the growth down to feeling smooth again. Still lots better than a disposable, which tore me up a couple of...

    Is Battery power taking over the lawn/garden business?

    We started with the 40v Ryobi maybe 5-6 years ago, and while it got the job done, using FOUR(4!) of the standard 2.6a batteries, it really struggled in some areas of the yard, where the grass really grows, tends to hold moisture, and is thick. It would bog down enough at times to trip the motor...

    Wilkinson Sword (Solingen Germany)

    Those are the German Wilkies, I bought a pack of 100 (20 cards of 5) back in 2019. Good in some razors, and just prone to giving a nick here and there in others. In my Timeless, or REX (at 3+) I get mystery weepers and small nicks, that you don't always now occurred until the red appears. In...

    Injector next steps?

    Schick Adjustable with a Schick Twin Blade equals a fantastic shave, with the yellow packaged Chinese Schick blades in second. - Haven't tried any of the Supply branded (Personna?) blades, so can't comment on them. The Schick Twins do however seem to last forever.

    Injector Razor Shave Angle...

    They shave sort of like a GEM, nearly flat against the face. I tilt mine every so slightly downward from perfectly flat, which yields a really nice, close, and comfortable shave. I only kept the Adjustable, which for me just seem to shave better than the G or the Personna models I previously...
