/r/wicked_edge has lots of great advice. I'll boil a lot of it down for you though..

  1. Stop using the 17-bladed nuclear-powered vibrating cartridge monsters with extra lubricating strip and kung-fu grip. Similarly, no electric shavers. They're really electric hair-ripper-outers. Not kidding. Kick it old school, like your grandfather. Look at a double-edge safety razor, or if you're really looking to go all-in, consider a straight razor.

  2. Think about your shaving cream. Does it come out of a can using aerosol? Maybe rethink that too then. Plenty of options out there that don't involve chemical-laden aerosol-propelled goo. You can even really turn the clock back with a cup/bowl/mug and brush setup to whip up a nice lather. I'm a fan of Taylor of Old Bond Street. But, I've also used DR Harris products, and they're quite nice as well. One of the side benefits of my former job was all the trips to London, so I could just stop into the ToBS shop on Jermyn Street. Sadly, those days are past, so I rely on the kindness of co-workers that still go over. :) It's easy enough to get their products in the US, it just costs a bit more.

  3. If you go the DE route, get a sample pack of different blades. Different blades work differently on different guys. For me, Derby blades are death. For others, they're amazing. For me, I work well with Astra, or can manage Feathers if I'm really careful (they're super sharp). My best blade though, has been a Personna medical prep blade.

  4. Shave in passes. Do a with-the-grain pass, followed by an across-the-grain pass. If you're really not there yet, you can add an against-the-grain pass, but that's a pretty advanced move. Remember - you're doing multiple passes. You don't need to remove every bit of hair the first pass. You don't press the razor into your face (as you're probably used to!). This razor has heft, and a blade that's really sharp. You're accustomed to a lightweight razor that has blades that are as dull as a hunk of cardboard compared to your garden variety DE blade.

  5. Use a quality aftershave. Try to avoid ones that contain alcohol, as it dries out the skin. I love the Nivea sensitive skin stuff. I can get it for way cheaper than that link shows at Walgreens, Target or Wegmans though.

    Many folks will try to sell you on the economics here, and how much money you'll save by shaving this way. While possible, it's not necessarily so. One can go bonkers and spend hundreds on the best gear if they wish. BUT, you don't have to.

    For me, I use a $30 brush from with a $5 mug from Target. My cream (ToBS Jermyn St) runs about $15 a tub, which lasts me probably 6-9 months. My daily shaver is a $30 Edwin Jagger, and my blades run about $30 for a 100-pack. I get 2-3 shaves from each blade.

    If you run the numbers, you'll likely come out ahead by going to DE, get better shaves, and have better skin as well. It sure was cheaper for me. I used to go through a cartridge a week. So, that's 4 carts a month. I was spending $30-ish every other month on 8-packs of cartridges, or about $3.75 per week. Nowadays, that's 2 blades a week, at ~$0.30/blade, that's $0.60/week in blades. That's a massive savings alone.

    You can do the ROI analysis for yourself. Take into account what you'd spend on shaving supplies, and calculate at which points the cost lines cross (ie break-even).
u/xArbilx · 60 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

When you shave against the grain the razor tugs at the hair in addition to slicing through it, pulling it a bit farther out of the follicle. This makes it much easier to get ingrown hairs and irritation on the skin.

Edit to elaborate on everyone else's experiences by adding my own: Using Mach 3s and all that newer stuff I always broke out on my neck. Switching to a safety razor(a big part of this is also finding the right blade brand for you skin, Feather was way too sharp for me and caused razor burn, I ended up going with Derby), using a badger hair brush and shaving soap and making my own lather, shaving while showering and your hair is moist and skin is warm from the steam, and rinsing with ice cold water after the shave are what I found work the best. Hard to nail down exactly what helped the most cause I switched to doing all that at the same time.

Safety Razor



Fogless Shower Mirror

Mug to make lather in


After Shave

Cold Water ;P (I honestly think rinsing with cold water for at least 15 seconds before putting on after shave is the most important part in avoiding irritation and ingrown hairs.)

u/Karamazov · 25 pointsr/Frugal

switch to double edge safety razors. After an initial investment in a handle (about $15 depending on quality) you can buy 100 blades for less than $10.

u/Roygbiv856 · 12 pointsr/Frugal

100 for $30 is an awful deal. I just picked up 100 personna blues for $12

Here's 100 Derby blades for $9

u/Psalm22 · 10 pointsr/pics

I'm not sure about straight razors, but I switched to double edged safety razors and it is so much better than Gillette crap. I bought this Merkur Safety Razor, 100 Derby Blades, Shaving Soap, And a shaving brush.

I spent a total of $60 and the only thing I've spent money on since is different soap. I bought these things over two or three years ago and I'm not even close to running out of razor blades. I get a closer more refreshing shave and I don't spend anywhere near the money I used to spend on shaving. Also, I thought it would take me longer to shave, but I spend about the same amount of time shaving.

I've never used an old school straight razor, but I'd like to at some point. However, it would be a considerable investment initially. At least $120ish for a nice blade, you gotta buy sharpening stone, probably also on a special strop for finer sharpening. So there is more time in preparation and conditioning before and after shaving. I would imagine that it could be very satisfying if you're willing to spend the time and money.

u/thedreday · 10 pointsr/LifeProTips

Yes! I started with this kit. The soap and bowl are fine, the brush is rough (I bought a better one later). I actually found it at my local supermarket. Then you need a safety razor. Maggard is a very popular vendor on the sub. They sell cheap razors. Let's say you pick one up for $20. Now you need blades. I use Dorco. Others mentioned Astra and Derby. I linked to the 100 pack of each so you see how cheap they are (around $10), you could buy a smaller pack to try the blade. At around $40 (or the price for 12 Gilette Fusion Proglide cartridges you have enough to shave for around 2 years changing blades every week (I don't change that often, because I don't shave every day).

Now, how fancy you want your brush, your bowl, your soap, your razor, your blade is up to you. From the kit I built you I would get a better brush and maybe a fancier razor. People say different blades work for different people, so I would do a bit of research and try this site: For instance, you think you need a sharper blade, people say feathers are the sharpest, you can buy a couple blades for $0.55 each.

The only issue is that you (like others) might start to like wet shaving as a hobby and end up spending more money (like the $150 you mentioned). But besides that you will get a better shave than you can from fusions and canned foam/gel for less money.

u/RedbullF1 · 7 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'll tell you what's even better...

Buy one of these: Edwin Jagger DE89

and these blades

and never look back.

u/vernochan · 6 pointsr/de

Also das mit dem Rasieren kann ich ja verstehen, aber kaufen? 100 Klingen kosten nich wirklich viel (Beispiel) und man kann auch einfach 2-3 Packungen kaufen. Die reichen dann schon eine ganze Weile ;)

u/shadow_moose · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I got this and this a couple years ago. I just bought 100 more blades last week. Only one blade for the shave, but once you figure out the angle and the speed you begin to realize you don't need more than one.

u/kelpants · 5 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I got them so I wouldn't have to buy expensive disposable blades anymore - I also heard that they might cut down on razor burn. I have mixed reviews. I still use a disposable for my armpits because it's just too lumpy in there - you can go a million times faster using a disposable.

For my legs - the razors themselves for a safety razor are INSANELY cheap and come in bulk. The problem is - you need to go very, very slowly, even on straightaways like your legs. Press very lightly - let the movement and sharp edge do the work for you without applying much pressure at all. I learned my lesson by taking a pretty sizable strip of skin off my ankle the second time I was shaving because I tried to go too fast. The shave is very close and leaves you crazy smooth, but I do get razorburn (I have keratosis pilaris though so I don't know if there's any avoiding that). Lotion works. I have trouble with my knees, especially after the cutting incident, I'm scared of cutting myself there. Usually leave some hairs and often go over it with my disposable. And I always do have a couple tiny bloody spots afterwards that I didn't feel when I was shaving, but they're very small and go away quickly.

Bottom line - would I buy it again? Maybe. I think it's better suited for someone who shaves their legs very regularly. I shave maybe once a month or even two months, because I hate it, so making it even more time consuming is bad for me. But if I did it daily I think the safety razor would be awesome because it really cuts down on waste/cost and the shave is SUPER close so you could shave less and still have crazy smooth legs. Works pretty well in the nether regions also, actually. Just go slowly :)

Here is what I bought:

The razor handle is good, but my boyfriend has one that is really easy to replace the blades - you twist the bottom and it opens up the top and you just pull out and plop in the new one. Mine you have to almost completely take it apart, which is dumb. Spend time looking for the one I describe where you can just easily replace the blades.

The blades are good and cheap, I spent some time reading reviews so I believe those are the best quality/price combo.

u/braden87 · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Might I recommend:


... 100 blades for < $10. They work nicely, I'm through about 35 of them.

u/tommygunner91 · 5 pointsr/MGTOW

A lot of people steer towards /r/wicked_edge but personally they over complicate it and make it 'a thing'. I was using £10 equipment at one point but found a low-mid range kit to be fine.

Assuming you're American go for -
Handle (holds the blade)

Blades -
One of these lasted me 4 years and I have thick hair

Optional -
Soap -

lasts 9-12 months+ works best with single blade

Brush -

To lather the soap and apply to face.
Basically the only difference between the can of shaving foam and a soap dish + brush is the latter being cheaper, less aggressive on the face (with time investment of a month tops) and quality of shave.

Any questions ping them across.

u/stepup2stepout · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

You can get 100 razors for 7 bucks. I don't see the advantage of using shitty disposable razors compared to safety razors.

u/Russtopher617 · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've had one of those for six years now. Great shave and looks like the day I bought it. Match it up with a few packs of Derby blades and it'll keep the recipient clean-shaven forever. I get about a month of shaves out of each blade.

u/Gingor · 3 pointsr/AskMen

This is a safety razor. What you have is a cartridge razor, which are more expensive to maintain.

For example, I buy these blades, which cost me 0.09$ per blade.

u/nailll · 3 pointsr/depra

Непраны, нельзя больше скрывать этот всемирный проктор-н-гэмбловский заговор! В следующий раз когда понадобиться покупать очередные картриджи для денди для бритья, подумайте еще раз.

Вы спросите, почему собственно безопасная бритва, а не попсовый Жилет Фьюжн...

Ну во-первых это красиво! Помимо этого, безопасная бритва легко справляется с заросшим лицом и не причиняет такой ацкой боли как 5 лезвий фужн. Если вы иногда отпускаете бородищу - вы должны меня понять. Субъективно бреет чище.

А во-вторых - это просто выгоднее в долгосрочной перспективе (вы же собираетесь бриться в ближайшее 30 лет, правда?).

И так, минутка познавательной (и очень приблизительной) экономики.
Для удобства и правильности сравнения, я просто взял цены с

При условии что средне-статистический депер бреет 45 миллиметровую щетину 3-4 раза в неделю в течение следующих 10 лет, ему потребуется потратить:

Gillette Fusion:

  1. Станок Gillette Fusion - $10

  2. Сменные касеты (4штк) - $16

  3. Гель для бритья Gillette Fusion - $6

    Допустим гель для бритья в год нужно два балона, не больше - это $12.

    Сужу по себе - одной кассеты хватает +/- на 3 месяца. Итого нужно 4-6 картриджа в год. (около $16-26)

    Итого приблизительно $10 + $16 + $12 = $38 в первый год и $28 последующие 10 лет = 38 + 280 = $318

    Безопасная бритва:

  4. Станок Merkur Classic - $32
  5. Набор лезвий Derby 100 штук - $10
  6. Помазок для бритья Basic Badger - $12
  7. Крем для бритья Proraso - $7

    Из "расходников" в последующие года вам понадобятся только лезвия и крем. В.С.Е!
    Лезвия надо менять чаще чем раз в 3 месяца разумется, но их то 100 штук!

    За последние 2 месяца я едва израсходовал всего 5 лезвий. То есть в год вам потребуется 30штук. И 100 лезвий за 9 долларов вам должно хватить на 3 года! Что говорит о сумме в районе $30-35 за 10 лет.

    Крем - я израсходовал всего треть крема для бритья. таким образом вам потребуется около 2 тюбиков в год.

    Итого, за первый год 32 + 12 + 7 2 = $61, а за последующие 10 лет - 7 2 10 + 10 3 = 61 + 170 = $231


    Использование безопасной бритвы позволит вам сэкономить в последующие 10 лет около $90.

    Надо признаться, сам процесс бритья стал целой церемонией преображения.

    Всем бриться, депраны!
u/felixthemaster1 · 3 pointsr/videos

Sorry, I wanted to correct myself, I mean a pack of 100 blades

I suggest the derbys to start off with till you get a hang of shaving iwth a blade then you can experiment to see which blades suits your face the best. When you find the one you can order a pack of 100

u/theadvenger · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Thats actually pretty steep for blades!

You can get premium blades for less. 100 pack of Feathers for $26.50 or $0.265 or if you just want cheap blades the 100 pack of Darby's will run you less than $10

u/crbowen44 · 3 pointsr/shaving

I went on amazon bought a brush for 10.00, a relatively cheap DE razor for about 27.00 a stand for 10 and a soap for 10.00, I would recommend trying a soap sampler to find one you like. You can find starter packs as well, and I would do that. I was trying to be somewhat frugal but ended up needing more than I thought. Most razors come with a free pack of blades, usually at least 5, and that should last you approximately 15 shaves, so at least two weeks. After that I recommend going with some kind of blade sampler since a lot of packs come with a hundred blades and if you buy the wrong blade you might be out the 10 or 15 that it cost.

It takes longer than a cartridge razor to shave, and requires more skill and attention, but the whole process is much more enjoyable with better results.
I recommend going the cheap route until you're sure you like it, and as you wear out the items you buy (bristles comes out of my brush almost every shave, a couple at a time) then buy the next level up. It can be extremely expensive, but like anything there's also regular people versions of all the expensive stuff too.

For your reference:

u/NachoCupcake · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

It can be or it can't be. I started a couple of years ago (maybe 3?) and when I did, I spent about $120 for everything. Since then, I've spent a total of about $50. That includes blades and soap.

Really, to get started all you need is a razor and blades, then you can buy the soaps or creams piecemeal as you go. A lot of manufacturers will give you free (or cheap) samples of their products, so you can try before you buy.

My recommendations for starting out are:

You can get a cheaper razor, but I recommend a longer handle. You can also find nice older ones at antique shops for really cheap if you're willing to clean them up before using them. I'm not that patient, but maybe you are. The blades are a variety pack, so you can get an idea of what you like because they're all a little bit different. The last time I replaced my blades I bought these because they're really cheap (less than 10¢ per blade) and I like them a lot.

Eventually you might want to get a brush and some fancy soap, but I've seen brushes at Walmart for $5 or less.

There's a lot of fancy lingo that goes into wet shaving, but it's really not a whole lot different than using disposables. The only real differences are that you have to take better care of your skin (shucks), you don't have to press as hard with the razor, and you control the angle of the blade (a blessing and a curse.)

If you have any questions, please ask! There's also always the sidebars at /r/ladyshavers and /r/wicked_edge!

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/UKFrugal

This isn't really a money saving tip - if you follow /r/wicked_edge's advice, you'll end up spending loads on badger-hair brushes and other unnecessary shaving paraphernalia.

If you really want to save money, buy a cheap double-edge razor (such as this or this, if you want something metal), then buy lots of razor blades in one go. I use these ones, but any with fairly good reviews will do. Use a gel/foam/soap of your choice and you're set. The blades will probably last you a couple of years and the razor should hopefully last a year, if not more.

u/jlking3 · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

You can get into wet shaving so cheaply! There's a double-edge razor that gets positive reviews at wicked_edge that's less than $3 from Amazon. It comes with one blade, but you can get a 5-pack of DE blades at Family Dollar for $1. Walmart sells a brushless shave cream called Cremo that's a very good value for under $4. You'd spend as much on one Fusion razor.

Also, you can get double edge blades even cheaper. $7.50 for 100 blades. (A minimum of 200 shaves.)

u/muliebritee · 2 pointsr/RedPillWomen

I use the Edwin Jagger DE89Lbl. IMO you don't need a razor specifically designed for women; they will do the job regardless. Women sometimes choose different blades, though. Since men's facial hair is usually thicker, they prefer more aggressive (read: sharper) blades like Feathers. I'm perfectly okay with the less aggressive blades like Derbys. If you go one /r/wicked_edge, they always recommend beginners get a blade "sample pack" to see what brand works for you, and then stick with that brand.

u/OneBigBug · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

Ehhhh..They are almost definitely sharper overall. To be clear, I don't agree with basically anything the poster whom you responded to said, but I think if you interpret a very reasonable amount of context, 'sharper' is a fair thing to say of razor blades.

Gillette cartridges. Not even the most expensive kind, just something that you'd buy at the store.

Double edge razor blades for a safety razor. Not the least expensive, again, just something you'd typically buy for your razor or would come with your razor.

For the sake of argument, let's say they're both identical sharpness and material when you buy them (I have no reason to believe they're not). Each time you use it, it gets a little less sharp. Shave with the same one for a few days, it's not going to cut as cleanly anymore. One costs $0.10 per blade, one costs $2.25 (at the low end, if you get them by volume), how often are you going to replace each?

Before I bought a double edge, I was using a Gillette Fusion. I would make those carts last for a couple weeks of shaving because they cost so damn much. Like $5 each. Now I could shave with a fresh blade every day of the month and only spend a small fraction of the price doing it. It depends on how cheap you are, but unless you're spending a pretty considerable amount of money to shave, just buying blades instead of carts will result in you shaving with a sharper blade over time.

u/bandman614 · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

I think I'm one of the few people that switched to safety razors for the financial savings and actually got that savings, because I didn't get sucked into all of the accessories.

Honestly, I use my relatively generic safety razor ($35) and got bulk double-edged blades ($10). I did that....three years ago? And I'm maybe halfway through.

I don't shave every day, but honestly, I'm good shaving a surprisingly many number of times on the same blade. If I had been going through my old standby of Mach 3 (turbo (express (vibrating))) or whatever it is now, God only knows how much money I'd be in for.

The single biggest improvement in my shaving life was when I went to an old school barber and told him that I kept getting massive razor burn under my neck with a safety razor, and he was like, "that's because you're doing it backwards". I was shaving down, from my chin toward my chest. My hair doesn't grow that way - I need to shave from the bottom of my neck up toward my chin. (you may be different).

After I figured that out? Never going back. Also, I use conditioner instead of frothy mugs of soap. It just works better for me.

u/unconscionable · 2 pointsr/wicked_edge

I'd like to suggest an alternative list. I don't have a lot of experience with a ton of different safety razors, but I did have a cheapo safety razor I inherited from my grandpa (RIP), and after 3yrs I spent under $40 on an Edwin Jagger and the difference was staggering. I'm not one to suggest unloading a ton of money on anything, but I'd suggest your priorities are a bit skewed when you're spending less on your safety razor than you are on your alum block (which is hardly a necessity, comparatively. Some people don't even like them, although I do)...

Here's my alternative suggestion that adds up to roughly the same amount of upfront $$ (~$50 - 60), but sets your priorities toward getting a fantastic, albeit affordable safety razor that will last you your whole life:

Edwin Jagger ($40)

There are others in this price range that are good as well. I can't speak to those, but I doubt anyone here will argue that the Edwin Jagger is not a top contender for its price point. It's very popular.

I'd hold off on buying blades today (unless you really want to) since the above safety razor comes with 5 which should get you buy for your first 20 shaves or so if you want them to.. but when you do, buying them 100x at a time for ~$10 seems to be the right price point (and it'll last you 5yrs if you're like me), unless you like fancy feather blades or something. I've never noticed a difference between vendors, but others have. YMMV. Here's what I have:

That brush seems like a good price point. over $10 but under $20 seems to be a good price point for a decent quality brush unless you know what you're looking for. Mine has lasted me 3yrs so far and has no visible signs of wear or hairs falling out. I'd expect it to last another 3 at the very least, but probably many more.

Alum block? Skip it if you want for the time being, but I'd get it if I were you since it's just $6. It's the same one I have and it does its job of closing up nicks very well.

Styptic pencil is like $1 (maybe $2) at CVS / Walgreens, IIRC, no need to get on amazon if you don't want. Definitely get one of these, just don't lose the damn thing. Sure beats little bits of toilet paper on your face for hours and hours.

You can also get a puck of William's shave soap at CVS for $2 link which will last you a long time. If you want to spend a few bucks extra on that Palmolive stuff because you know it'll be better for your individual skin, then go for it.

In short: Spend the money on the safety razor, which should last forever. Skimp on everything else, which will not last forever. That's my advice. I spent 3yrs shaving with a razor that I had no idea was as comparatively awful as a good one. I wish I had known better at the time, but unfortunately I did not, and had pretty shitty shaves and got lots of nasty cuts for 3yrs that could have been avoided.

u/Warqer · 2 pointsr/Breadit

The main thing I use most of the time are just a scale (in grams is best, but it's more about ratios than anything), a dough scraper (something like this, but any flat piece to manipulate the dough will work. It's also very useful for cleaning where you were shaping the bread.). For letting the dough do it's final rise, I cover a flour sack towel (other fabric will work, but you want it smooth enough so the dough doesn't get fuzz in it, but coarse enough for the flour to 'catch' on it) in flour (a mix of wheat and fine rice flour is best, but cornmeal and rice or just lots of wheat flour will work) and line a colander with it. And razors for cutting the dough without it sticking. (putting something like these on a wooden coffee stirrer stick works well, but any razors or sharp blades should be fine.)

Other stuff is nice to have, but not necessary, IMO.

u/AbandonedTrilby · 2 pointsr/news

I pay ever so slightly more than that much for my blades, including shipping.

(Last time I bought them they were $8.00 for the pack)

u/yo_soy_soja · 2 pointsr/AskMen

I'm a big advocate of double edged razors. They're the cheapest way to shave, and they're classy af.

Get a Merkur for $29, then buy 100 razor blades for $8. It'll last you forever.

You can get a badger brush, shaving cream, etc., but I just shave while my face is still wet from the shower.

u/stupidlyugly · 2 pointsr/funny

I just saw that in Walmart. They want $8 for 12 replacement blades. Here are the most expensive high end DE razor blades I know of on Amazon.

So the Pawn Shop wants $.67 per blade for what is probably mediocre quality at best when the top of line is, in actuality, $.25. And a serviceable blade runs $.095 per.

u/getMeSomeDunkin · 2 pointsr/AskMen

Safety razor in the kind of matte finish. I haven't really used another safety razor, but I like it a lot. Nice weight to it.

I can't remember the brush but it was about $40 I think.

I like the Crabtree and Evelyn line called Moroccan Myrrh. It smells nice and I also have the same cologne. Used to be called Nomad, but they changed the name for whatever reason.

The razors are Derby:

$8 for 100 of them.

It's like most things. Large initial investment with very minimal upkeep after that.

u/flexgap · 2 pointsr/italy

Prima di pensare alle lamette dovresti pensare a cosa fai per prepararti alla rasatura, ci sono tante piccole accortezze che risolveranno il tuo problema di pelle sensibile.

Alcuni casi di "pelle sensibile" sono peli incarniti che vengono incisi durante la rasatura, il modo migliore per evitarlo è usare uno scrub possibilmente una volta al giorno. Ti basta passare la saponetta/gel sulla faccia mentre fai la doccia e hai risolto il problema.

Poi dovresti usare una schiuma da barba senza alcol, che secca la pelle e la rende più esposta, prima di raderti lava la faccia con abbondante acqua calda per ammorbidire la pelle e sciacquala con acqua fredda dopo la rasatura. In più, la rasatura contro-pelo danneggia la pelle per cui dovresti cercare di raderti seguendo l'andamento della tua barba.

Ora per rispondere alla tua domanda, io uso un rasoio di sicurezza in acciaio con lamette usa e getta 100% riciclabili. Mi ero trovato bene con questo e come lamette queste

These, and this and a decent brush make a great shaving kit. My safety was actually cheaper than this and it's been going for years. As soon as it wears out (which it has shown no sign of), I'll grab another. The blades are really the commodity in this scenario. I absolutely love them.

Dude for about 33 bucks you can get a safety razor with soap kit and 100 blades. After that a pack of 100 blades will cost you 10 bucks (good for 400 shaves)

It's not just about the razor you choose to shave with. Wicked_edge gives guidance on proper routine to keep your skin healthy, eliminate acne, and tips on how to smell like a boss. Also my years supply of razors for my DE cost $8.00.

You're going to do a lot more to maximize comfort by finding the right blade than you are by tossing blades after a single use. Matter of fact, using a blade only once may actually decrease comfort. For me at least, the second and third shaves are often more comfortable than the first: the blade is still very sharp, but seems a little smoother.

That said, there are plenty of blades that cost less than $18 per hundred. Derby and Astra SP spring immediately to mind, and each of them has its advocates.

What? You can get 100 blades for $7.50.

A pack of the cheapest 30 multi blade razors that only last a few uses is like $10. 15 Mach 3 razors is $33.

I barely have any facial hair but disposable razors barely last. After a single pass it gets clogged up and its frustrating to clean. I used a safety razor and it was both faster and gave a much better shave.

I am thinking about buying a straight razor soon. Time isn't really an issue for me and I rather enjoy it.

Here is a guy shaving with a safety razor.

As he says, takes 5-10 minutes.

One blade lasts me three shaves/one week.



It's TTO, Twist To Open; you rotate the knob on the bottom and it opens the blade holder on top.


Shave oil:

Shave Oil can also be found at your local Walgreens or CVS since it'll be the one you run out of first.


Also this Shave Gel is the same formula, but just easier to use/spread:

Looks like a better value, volume/price wise.

Guide to budget-buying for your first safety razor? Yes. As a matter of fact, this is the biggest advantage of shaving the old way: Supplies are quite cheap (though enthusiasts can quickly spend quite a lot of money on fancy brushes and hand-made razors). Go to Amazon, and look at these:

Silver Tone DE Razor -- For the money, you can't really beat this razor. I have one, and it works as it ought to. You might pick up an antique for no more than a couple bucks at a yard sale or antique shop; but give this a try if you can't be arsed.

Williams Mug Shaving Soap -- Works well enough; best when lathered on the puck. Cheapest you can buy.

Luxor Pro Badger Brush -- It's cheap. But it works. It will probably start losing bristles and thus wear out after a year or two; YMMV. If you want to get something a little nicer that will last a good long while, plan to spend at least $25 on a shaving brush; boar are better for the cheaper brushes but badger are the best if they are quality.

Most recommend getting one of the blade sampler packs on Amazon if you don't know what you like shaving with. These cost $12-30 or so, depending on how many blades are in them. If you're looking to go really cheap, get a 100 pack of Derby blades for $8. You can get a five pack of cheap blades for as little as $1, but I can't vouch for the effectiveness of those.

All told, this combo will cost you around $18.92, and you'll have adequate shaving supplies to last you for a couple years (depending on how much soap you use).

In time you'll want to upgrade things, of course; but this will do you well.

[These razor blades] (

I started DE shaving a while back, but I'm finding that the blades I bought a 100 pack of , don't really work for me and I'm in need of razor blades.
It will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine.

u/JustWatchItBurnnn · 1 pointr/gifs

Feather is too sharp for me. Irritates my skin no matter how prepped for it I am. I have been using Derby

I'm partial to Derby and for $10? Psh, screw Gillett!

u/Leisureguy · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

I bought a bulk order of Astra Superior Platinum blades and got the blades for 9¢ each. A blade lasts a week (for me, 6 shaves: I take Sunday off), so a year is 52 * 9¢ = $4.68.

Amazon right now has those blades available for $9.85 for 100, or 9.85¢/blade: a total of $5.12 for a year of shaving. If Derby blades work for you, they are now available for $9.41/100, or 9.41¢/blade: yearly total (assuming 1 blade per week) or $4.89/year for blades.

I do shave 6 days per week.

Now, Astra Superior Platinums do not work for everyone---and the same is true for every brand---but even more expensive brands don't cost like cartridges. I favor Personna Lab Blue blades in my slants---from West Coast Shaving they are $17/100, or $.17/blade. Still, that's only $8.84 for a year's worth of blades.

u/flipsparrow · 1 pointr/minimalism

I have thick facial hair, so for me it lasts about 4-5 shaves comfortably, but I can stretch it to a few more. But I never feel the need to, because a 100-pack from Astra or Derby runs about $10, which is about $0.09 a blade. Whereas the typical Gillette blades cost a little over $3 each even on Amazon.

u/FlexGunship · 1 pointr/mechanical_gifs

>Things like "
>" are still commonplace. Their usefulness is debatable though.

Sure. But even that targets "Expensive" refill blades. A refill for a Gillette razor can be kind of expensive. A few dollars each, anyway.


But, no joke, those double-edge'd razor blades are $8 for 100. I bought that 100-pack in 2014 and I'm still using them!!

u/kevik72 · 1 pointr/beards

Back when I was still shaving I bought this. I will never need to buy another blade again.

Ah zut :/

Pourtant les gens ont l'air content là :

u/typpeo · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

Yes, I have a pretty good understand of how my hair grows and which direction.

Normal routine for the DE would be to run some warm water running and add a little bit to the brush. I have this kit. Then I lather up the brush with the soap and then my face. I have a the Mekur Model 180 and [Derby Extra Double Edge blades](

I usually shave the sides of my face first and work my way towards the middle. I end up doing my neck last. I usually always shave the grain, if I don't I feel like I'm not getting close enough of a shave. It seems like some people think you should shave with and some say against but maybe that's part of my problem right there.

Thanks for helping me out!

u/qualiaqq · 0 pointsr/wicked_edge

I know right! This almost pisses me off that someone might see this and think they cost that much. It says per cart, but I'm thinking cart is not a pack of razors, but a razor cartridge (which doesn't make sense in the case of the safety razors).

I haven't looked the price of safety razors vs cartridges in a while, but on amazon the best seller cartridges vs my favorite safety razors comes out to $2.83/razor vs $0.09/razor.

u/GiantManaconda · 0 pointsr/funny

You pay $2.50 a cartridge?


u/Th4t9uy · 0 pointsr/wicked_edge

I bought these and not had any issue, under a tenner for a hundred blades.

u/MistaClyde · -1 pointsr/wicked_edge

I find these work best with my Merkur:

Derby Extra Double Edge Razor Blades, 100 Count

u/bouillon · -1 pointsr/Frugal

Here is a $2.63 razor that has been reviewed on /r/wicked_edge as a very decent starter double edge. Derby blades are $7.50 for 100 and this starter shave set can be found at walmart for a little less. Soap should last at least a few months, and if you use one blade a week, you should be good for ~2 years.
