Re: How many shaves ...

I have a beard (or designer stubble if it was still the 80's) so all I use is a beard trimmer. I only use razors to shave my gonads so I use my wifes.

Re: How many shaves ...

I don't know, because I only shave once or twice a week, so it's hard to remember how many since I last changed it.

Four. I shave every other day (face & head) with a WS Titanium Quatro. Miles better than the top of the range Gillette. It would struggle to do 2

Re: How many shaves ...

in the supermarket last night, I randomly picked up a new razor. Use it last night (i only shave at night) and the damn thing has five blades on it! Five!

C'mon, there's a difference between a shave (which is what I wanted) and being skinned alive!

Five blades - sheesh.

Who's face is it? Sort it out! I've not had a shave for ten years and don't care less if my ex wife or my current wife like my beard or not. Get growing

Final question for him should be: -

Do you feel a t**t for making a website about your beard

Re: How many shaves ...

Re: How many shaves ...

I shave for free at work, so I honestly couldn't tell you how many shaves I get per blade.

Re: How many shaves ...

I get five shaves from every blade. Shave on weekdays, let the skin rest on weekends. the blades are dead after any more than six shaves...
