    Best New Safety Razors under $20

    Got a Weishi Gunmetal for $15 that was my 1st DE, and still use it. Nothing beats my Ming Shi 2000S for $7. Have never gotten less than a DFS shave with it. I just posted about someone on the Bay selling DE89's for less than $20 & free shipping. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Offer of an EJ 89DE on the Bay

    I've been thinking about an upgraded 3 piece razor for awhile. I use a JunJie that got a couple of years ago, and it does the job.Just think it would be cool to have something else that's a brand name. The other day, I'm looking at something else on the Bay, and found a seller looking to get rid...

    Dr. John's Bay Rum

    I picked this up in Pasture a couple of weeks ago from the 50% shelf. Nice scent, light on the cloves, and shaves well. Does anyone else know the brand? Was surprised they were moving it out, but a good buy for $8. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Gillette to release NEW DE razor for the holidays

    This is a start. It will be interesting to see if Gillette decides to get back in the game they once owned or if this is just a one off. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Good inexpensive blade that gives a smooth shave

    In the end, all DE blades in bulk are less expensive then what you pay for Fusion carts. Even a tuck will last me longer then a cart, and less money. The questions will always be, how much do you want to pay for so many blades? You might pay $10 to $15 bucks more per 100 between Feathers and...

    Origin of the complex blade slot?

    If you can find it, there is a great book on the history of Gillette that is about 40 years old now. I got it through the NYPL. Can't remember the name of it. I read it a few years back. Goes through the whole Probak-Gillette story and the slot for the blades. Sent from my Moto G Play using...

    Consensus opinions you disagree with

    Funny, I feel the same about the blades you've mentioned. But...as always...YMMV. That's why all the great discussion here on product. One man's treasurer might be another man's garbage...women too. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    GSB & Platinum

    I was just in Pasture's last week, and they were out of GSB. I picked up a tuck of Platinum instead. Both are the same price at $1.79. They may not be the same blade, but they are good. Both in my top 10, but GSB slightly higher ranked. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    Worst Blade

    The loser, and still the worst; Flying Eagle $h!#. . To say I could get a better shave with a dull butter knife would be an insult to dull butter knives everywhere. Followed close behind by Derby...Feh! And V2 or V12 from India. Sucked so bad not worth remembering the name. Sent from my Moto...

    To those who have tried both, how does the Winners blade compare to the 7 O'Clock Black? Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    When to bin a blade ?

    Usually after 6 shaves. Depends on how smooth & comfortable the 4th or 5th was. If it's still performing well enough, sometimes I'll go pass 6 and toss it when it starts to get rough. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk

    A seven shave blade.

    Usually I toss them after 6 shaves. Depends on the brand, and how it's holding up on the later shaves. Just took a look at my personal list for blades, and out of my top 20, 17 have done at least 6 or more for me. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk
