OT - DE Razor shaving ()

Bill Houghton, Sebastopol, CA
Don't know, but I get a couple of weeks or more from blades in my old Gillette. Well, more than that, because, now that I've graduated from work, I don't necessarily shave every day.

I used to use the blades from our local pharmacy chain, but then it was purchased by CVS, and the CVS blades are like shaving with a sharpened garden rake. I now use Merkur, just because that was what I picked from the vast choice offered by the online supplier I use. I'll try some Feather blades next time I need to order, in a year or so.

I remind myself of the survey some years back in which a majority of women found two days' growth of beard sexy...although I then remember that the women in question were probably not thinking about old men.
