    What would you do if your shaver did THIS?

    Sorry about the quality but I don't think you'll regret watching (or even rewatching) this! It's from season 2 of the original Twilight Zone! He doesn't have the best experiences with technology...

    Uneven blade exposure

    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 :)

    Uneven blade exposure

    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. The...

    Uneven blade exposure

    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...

    Random q: Are analog watches quiet?

    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...

    Random q: Are analog watches quiet?

    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? Thanks :D

    In a dystopian future where everybody uses cartridge razors...

    ... one man has taken it upon himself to convert people to the light, and his name... Double Edge! Join Double Edge on his mission to defeat his arch nemesis - Multi-Blade! ... What do you guys think? Good, right? ^_^

    Do cartridge razor cartridges typically last for more shaves than razor blades?

    I've been wondering about this for a while and just wanted to hear your thoughts! Thanks, guys! :)

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

    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

    Blade alignment on the Rockwell 2C

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

    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...

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

    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.

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

    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...

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

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

    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...

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

    Hm, I bought a series 1000 Philips similar to the one SinatraLennon had in his video, on Amazon. It was £34 with 2 days delivery time. The exact model is the S1332/41. Let's see if it gives me any reasonable results ^^

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

    Yeah I found that. I could go over the same area so many times and it looked mostly the same. And then with a safety razor I could cut the hair down to almost nothing with one motion. I guess the reason is because of that layer of metal between your skin and the blades on an electric shaver...

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

    Because Pierce Brosnan made them look so cool in Die Another Day (I rewatched some of it recently). ... yes I really am that impressionable. XD Also the speed of it interests me :) Also it's cool to see a number of people have had such good luck with them here. Maybe I should try a...

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

    It's just strange isn't it though that I can buy a £6 safety razor and it works so well... even the £1 Bic disposables give an alright shave. The £3 cartridge razors I bought definitely work fine. But a £30 electric shaver does very little and I'm supposed to spend more? You see what I mean. It...

    hm, they don't really work for SinatraLennon either. So at least it's not just me I guess!
