And who makes their blades? lol
Hmmmmmm what should I buy next then! I do definitely have my eye on the 2C but... does it align blades OK? It's cheaper than the 6C and... I dunno. I think the 1 and 3 plates it has will probably be adequate for me at least for now :)
Ah wow I had no idea. Strange how the plastic one has no alignment issues. However it does eventually lose its grip when you tighten it and starts to come loose by itself >.<
Oh interesting. I'd like to get a new razor under £40 that aligns blades well and is fairly mild, or maybe medium.
I've had bad luck with these metal Wilkinson Sword safety razors!!
On the first one I had poor blade alignment and so I got a free replacement and this one has... uneven blade exposure. The cutting edge of the blade protrudes more on one side than the other! So of course one side feels too mild...
Thanks for all the great replies so far everyone they've really helped!
For now I've snapped up a couple of retro digital watches on ebay but... I'll almost definitely start buying some analog ones once I can work out which ones will be quiet enough to not bother me.
I like both I guess. Smart...
Because... with 99.9% of analog clocks the *tick tick tick* drives me crazy! XD
I am wondering if anyone knows - if I bought an analog watch... would I not hear it at all or only when it's very quiet, or?

... What do you guys think? Good, right? ^_^
Oh I've found a way I do definitely enjoy using an electric shaver! That Philips travel shaver is great for touching up my shave a little after I've finished with a safety razor, in case I missed any areas!
So hooray :D
Is it... very good?
I ask because I have this bad habit of cutting the far edges off the blades to eliminate the overhang.
It works great for me on my Wilkinson Sword razor but that's only because it aligns the blades very well.
So I just wanted to check before I bought a 2C (or maybe a 6C...
I get very, very few nicks. Or you could use a styptic pencil?
Of course the choice of razor and blade matters a lot. Feathers cut me up so bad but I don't know why! As long as I use Astras or Wilkinson Sword ones and the razor isn't super aggressive then I'm fine.
I get the occasional nick...
OK! I tried the Philips travel shaver and the Braun shaver again.
They... do seem to work... I think. But they both kind of hurt and the Braun is loud.
Nothing seems to match how nice a safety razor feels. Multi-blade cartridge/disposable razors definitely don't either, in my experience.
Funnily enough this little Philips travel shaver is starting to grow on me!
It's the quietest of the three by quite some way and I think it should work OK next time I try it as long as I go in circular motions (last time I tried it I didn't realise I was supposed to do that).
It's strange how...
Well, I tried it! The Philips Series 1000 that is.
It did kind of OK, on the areas I tried it on. Most of the hair there is gone, at least. But it was loud, not a very nice sensation and I ended up with some razor burn.
@Flyboybob I've heard people say that before yeah. Maybe one of these days...
I did try electric shavers a bit when I was in my teens. They worked quite well when I really didn't have much stubble, but then I switched to a mach 3 when I had more and then on to safety razors when I realised how much more easily they could cut through thicker stubble.
I guess I'm just...
