tired of paying an arm and leg for razors?

i know i am.
its cheaper to buy a whole new handle that includes 1 razor, than it is to buy a few new razors.

but, i just see this
http://www.dollarshaveclub.com/how-it-works

I don't know why, but this reminds me of Taco's Neckflix company on The League.

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.

I recommend them.

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.

Not great, but they work. I get the 4X blades and usually get a week (5-6 day of work) out of them. By the last couple days, they're a little used up.

I was a diehard Fusion user. These don't compare, but they save me a crap ton of money.

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.

Great show.

If it wasn't for work I would never shave again.

I use my hair clippers to shave, lowest setting and bam... barely 5 o'clock shadow. And yes I cut my own hair too.

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.

Bought a sissy electric razor because I got tired of paying for fusion blades. Sometimes it hurts bad with it, but its sure a lot cheaper.

I use the 5-blade system twice a week. I go through 1 blade every couple of months without hurting. Unless the wife uses it to do her own grooming, that is...

I cut my own hair as well. #1 in back and sides, #2 on top.

a better deal is dorco:

http://dorcousa.com/

dollar shave club actually buys their razors from dorco and rebrands them. cheaper to just order from the source and you don't have to sign up for any annoying subscriptions.

also the handles will fit any of their blades so you could buy the 6 blade handle then reorder 4 bladed ones later (not that it really matters as the handle price is negligible)
