    I toyed with wet shaving for a while, but essentially shaving is a chore. I want chores like that over with as quickly as possible. Of course, now I know that there's a way to save even more time...

    OK, I'm an old dude and I grew up wet shaving ... until I discovered the BEARD!!! I've had chin fungus for 35-years. I still trim it up around the edges with a safety razor, either wet or dry but that beard is not going anywhere. Besides my wife of 35-years likes it and I'm only too happy to accommodate her.

    Electric razors are for posers. Real men slice and dice with a blade!!!

    The last time I used anything like that, my face looked like it had been in a knife fight. It's a very nice gift and your wife was being thoughtful...

    Hope your bathroom has his and hers sinks.

    I did the single blade safety razor (same merkur stuff) for awhile, but I tend to only shave before some semi special occasion, and when that happens, I usually don't have time to do the whole routine. I am happy with my Mach 3's and plain ol' barbasol, I spend my money elsewhere when it comes to skin care.

    I shaved with a Norelco triple "lift and cut" for more than 30 years. In the last year, I switched to the "old school" style and never looked back. It took a while to get the hang of the double edge blade, but honestly, all my problems with ingrown hairs disappeared as my skill improved. I have a decent, heavy razor and good blades, but to be perfectly honest the BIC, single edge "sensitive" razors at WalMart or nearly any drug store are the absolute best shave I have gotten. The secret is in thoroughly washing your face first. Get a good lather by your favorite method, and shave WITH the grain of your beard. Rinse with a cold wash cloth and avoid alcohol base after shaves.

    One last thing. The razor blade companies think you need blades that have anywhere from 3 to 6 blades for the best shave, AND they want to charge an arm and leg for them. It's BS. Single edge is more efficient. YMMV.

    Not quite, but pretty close. The blades where double-edged though. These look single. That's what killed it, he couldn't get blades anymore sometime in the 80's.

    I never wore a beard, couldn't. So, now that I can, I'd just prefer not to. When I had lots of hair, I wore it long. Now, I cut it normal short, lot cooler in 101 degree heat that way. Beards sound hot and itchy. I might grow one if I didn't work in a chemical plant and lived in Alaska...northern Alaska...like Deadhorse or something.

    Reason I couldn't grow a beard is that it interferes with a full face mask when sampling or emergency SCBA when working in a gas release or something. It's the reason Hitler had such a weird mustache, had to in WW1 because of gas attacks.

    Only people with office jobs wear beards. I've never had an office job, always had a technical job in a chemical plant.
