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.

Thanks for the words of wisdom, guys.

Haven't tried Dollar Shave Club, but I do use Harry's System to shave my head once a week.  I'd definitely recommend them.  Although I use a DE to shave my face.  I'm really prone to ingrown hairs, so 1, 2 blades max, is all I use on my face.

I'm looking forward to getting serious about my shaving.  Right now, I've got a 4-month growth going on, and I may keep my beard until (1) the Raptors get eliminated from the NBA playoffs; or (2) it gets too warm for a beard. 

Has anyone tried the "Dollar Shave Club"-type razors advertised all the time on FaceBook?

Stein, every beard is different with swirls, texture of facial hair, "cowlicks" and the like. Rick S. is so right with "go with the grain and the against the grain." Personally, I find that wetness of the face and beard before starting the shave is better than lots of lather. Wetness is the key for me. I, too, have a thick beard. In my early days I had a full beard which was copper brown but by my mid 40's it became a real Santa Claus beard. In malls around Christmas time, I would invariably be stopped by hordes of children who thought I was Santa in disguise.

Shave either immediately right after a shower or in the shower.  I use a Gillette 5 blade and body soap (sometimes no soap).  First go with the grain and then go against the grain for a closer shave.

Maybe take the time and do two passes instead of trying to get everything in one go?
