New razor

Today was kind of a strange day. Was good until my old razor stopped working. I was expecting it to die soon but was hoping for more warning. I needed to be at work in less than 2 hours.

I ended up spending just over $42 for a new Norelco 7310. It is totally different than my old(an older Norelco) one. Best shave I've had in many months. Lot of razor burn though. My neck still hurts a bit.

That wasn't really the bad part. The bad part was my boss was really really rude to me. I don't know what provoked it but there it is.

I ended up in kind of a pissy mood for a couple hours. Then I went home and got on the computer and here we are.

That's my story for the day. Maybe I'll have a better one tomorrow.

There is no sig.

I use a Fusion Power. I bought it because it was $1 more expensive than the regular one.

I don't think it made much difference, to be honest.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

My high school didn't require me to shave back in the day, that scary motley thing must have grown for a good year or so, completely unkept. I think I scared a few people just on site, kinda bummed I don't have a picture actually.

I wouldn't have bought the razor if I didn't need it to shave for work. I used to go for months without shaving.

I usually keep a trimmed beard and mustache(else the beard looks weird), the thing I hate the most is nicking off a bit you didn't mean to, then you have to even it up, then you mess up that side, then your facial hair looks horrible. I shave my sideburns clean (and my neck...), but I leave it long enough between shaves that I sometimes need to use a trimmer first. So far my work (and my previous work) never had a problem. As I mentioned in another thread I work for minimum wage, so eh.

I wouldn't mind getting a straight razor, but, I'm unco

Usually if I mess up something I'll just shave it off and start over.

damn dsfs, that's beautiful. Keep up the good work.

I have to shave for work; I have an old Norelco that works well, but I usually just use a blade in the shower like the ladies.

I've bought maybe 2 or 3 electric razors so far, but I always went back to cheap disposables. For me at least, electric never could give me a close shave regardless if it was Norelco or Remington, etc.

Also as a side note, I don't use shaving cream. Instead, I use aloe or cheap-ass hair conditioner. Works just as well and I can actually see where I'm shaving without a bunch of white foamy crap on my face.

I don't use anything in terms of cream when using a blade; I don't even use a mirror - just hot water is enough if it's towards the end of the shower and had time to soak in, and I can tell if I missed anything just by running my hand over to check.

I agree that electric isn't as close, but it's close enough when I'm in a hurry.

Norelco? Ah, Philips.

Why do they have to use 10 different brand names for their stuff in the US?

No idea, I see it all the time though especially on vehicles. In some cases it's rather necessary, considering the translated double meanings of some of the model names.

There was an ad on MadTV ages ago for a ~20 blade razor that shaves all the way to the bone.

I just use the cheapo disposable razors. Works fine enough, but after one use they're pretty much done for. I really wish I could find a straight razor though.

My grandpa used to shave with a straight razor all the time. Those things mow through a thick beard like it's nothing and they give a really clean shave.

Btw, do barbers still do straight shaves?

After being highly pissed that Schick quit making injector razor blades... you can get "Shit" ones that are dull and Chinese knock offs.... I finally found a razor I can sorta deal with.

It's a Norelco 6423 LC and looks just like the old triple head electric razors grandpa used except all the metal parts are now made of plastic. It doesn't seem to matter. It pulls the whiskers a little bit, but I found if I am shaggy that I can buzz long whiskers off with the sideburn trimmer, then it shaves fine.

$50 and needs new blades every few months, but it's enough that it works. After 30 years of shaving nearly every day, my whiskers are about like brillo pad.

Old, getting deaf, getting blind and I'll be damned if I can remember that third thing is?

Yep, if you can find a real barber. Only one here in town.

Call antique shops. It's where I got mine with the leather strap & stuff. Too much of a hassle for daily use though.

Anyway, back when I tried to keep a goatee, I used an older metal saftey razor. Blades can usually be purchased at any drug store for pretty cheap.

There's no better shave than a shave in a barbershop. If you can find a barber who does it, treat yourself to a shave. The best one you'll ever get.

A few years ago I had a goatee, but shaved it since it was 3 different colors; blond, brown, and red. I looked like a calico (stupid family genes). Now, I never go more than a week without shaving because I strongly suspect a fourth color will emerge (see aFfLiCtEd's photo).

About RoH's barber...

I had one back in Pennsylvania but he died about 3 months ago. He got his start learning from his father and cutting hair when he was 9 years old, continued by cutting for his dirt-poor family/friends through the depression and WWII service. He worked almost to his dying day at age 89. That's 80 years of hair-cutting.

When he died he made the front page of the newspaper and thousands showed up at his funeral, which included a 21-gun salute. I wasn't able to go due to my job (too far away) but from the articles about it, it was quite an amazing commemoration for a barber.

Anyway, I mentioned him because he used an old school blade - scared the shit out of me every time he used it because of how fast he was with it, but he never cut anyone.

Most antique shops I visit have several very nice yet affordable kits for straight blades. I never got around to buying one, but I'd like to some day.

edit - I was wrong about "Mach 6" - it was "Fusion", which has 5 blades for regular shaving and a 6th on the corner for trimming.

Don't forget to live before you die.

The guy here is about pretty close to 80. You'd never know by looking at him, because he doesn't look a day over 79 He was in the Army giving hair cuts in the Korean War. Grumpy old fart, but knows his business.
