It only gets better Longarm...

Shaved the other night and it went well. Very close indeed!  Also shaved my neck, which I had strayed away from during my 5-blade era because I would always get razorburn and break out, so I would use an electric razor to mitigate.  But no adverse reaction this time using the safety razor!  I recommend one for anyone having similar issues!

Thanks, Niles. Here's the safety razor I bought (it's a Weishi) to go with my grandfather's shaving kit.  He had a bronze 2-blade razor with this kit.  Just opened it yesterday and I've only ventured as far as shaving my cheeks so far. Very different from the 5-blade Gillette I'd been using--nicked myself a few times--but it feels like a much closer shave!

Congrats on your decison to try a safety razor. Let us know how it goes.

Hello gents, I just bought my first safety razor from Amazon.  Five-blade razors give me razorburn plus I'm prone to ingrown hairs, so I hope it works out for me.  Also looking forward to the lower cost of razor replacement.

Art, if you have a CVS near you, you should be able to at least find Wilkinson Sword blades in the shave aisle.

I'd use my old school safety razor if I could find blades other than on the net

I have a friend who uses "Dollar Shave Club" for his head and face.  He raves about the quality of shave that he gets.

I use a DE on my face and love it.

Thanks. Clinton. I'm currently using a Harry's "Movember" blade to shave the edges around my beard - I like their razors as well.
