Razor Love

Does anyone out there know where I can buy one of these classic razors? Wal-Mart carries the double edged blades. But not the razors that hold them. I cut my teeth ( and cheek ) on these things. I want one.

A Gilette?

I know what you mean. I got tired of being ripped off by Gilettte with their fancy multi-blade that cost more than a Chevy pick-up, and changed every week.

Merkur, Long handle. German made, high quality. $33 on Amazon. I also got Derby blades, 200 for 17 bucks, enough for more than a year.

(this was the comment Google screwed up)

Shave? You guys shave?

Well, so do I but, like, once or twice a week. I buy the cheapest razors possible in bulk at Sam's. And over the years I have:

Moved from the sink to the shower to shave. (Who needs a mirror?);

Weaned myself from commercial canned lather to plain old soap and water; and,

Weaned myself from soap and water to just plain old water.

Shaving less often gives my skin a chance to heal, and my three-blade cheapies last comfortably for months at a time.

Shaving is really a lot simpler than some would have you believe.

I've taken to shaving in the shower, too. Every now and then ( now ) I grow a goatee. So I need a mirror in the shower to make sure I get it right. Moriarty loathes facial hair, so it's an issue. Problem is: Whenever I grow facial hair, she does, too. In a few days we're going to look like the Smith Brothers. But a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. And so does a woman. As long is she doesn't stop shaving her legs, I think I can live with this.
