I've been using them for almost a year. Great prices, decent razors and good customer service. I had one issue with billing and they freely admitted the problem then promptly fixed it. I had a broken handle, too and they jumped on it.
good smooth blades?
maybe its just me, but after just 3 shaves, my gillete razor started to hurt like hell. it was pulling way to much and not cutting enough.
i got more shaves out of a disposable razor than i did that expensive *** gimmick.
I got tired of paying through the nose for multi-blade razors. That's when I discovered the old-school safety razor. And later, the straight razor.
So now, when I do shave I use a double edge safety razor, and sometimes a straight razor. IMO, a double-edge safety razor gives a better shave than the ridiculous multi-bladed razors marketed today. The only better shave is a straight razor. In the long run both options are less expensive than going with the plastic multi-blade razors.
Double-edge razor replacement blades are less expensive that multi-blade razors, and the used blades are 100% recyclable. You can find a wide range of blade quality and price to suit your need, and you can buy replacement blades in bulk and not break the bank. For "expensive" blades (like Merkur platinums) you might pay about $55 for 100 blades, or about $0.55/blade. Even if you are going through two blades a week, that's enough blades for almost a year. You're gonna be hard pressed to find a top quality replacement fancy multi-blades at that price. Mach3 blades generally sell for $36 for 15 blades, or $2.40/blade at Walmart.
All it takes to start is a one time investment into a good safety razor handle and a shaving brush and mug. There's no mystery or mystique to using a double-edge safety razor. Maybe a little learning curve for some, and a little trial and error to find the right blade for your beard/skin.
I haven't shaved clean in over 6 years, as I use my hair clippers to shave as well. With no guide comb, it leaves a nice 5 o'clock shadow and takes about 45 seconds to do.
The fact that I'm half white means my beard is kinda blonde too. So it hides really well. There have been many times I hear "clean shaven" and I use the clippers, they can't even see it till I hit direct sunlight and there's gold flakes of Ireland all over my cheeks and neck.
