Back in October, I made the leap from disposable razors to shaving with a safety razor and have never looked back. I absolutely love it! I am in my fourth month and have only changed the blade once. My original estimate was one blade per month, with a savings of $236 - $336 and not having to buy blades again for eight years! At this rate I can double that!
So far I have only nicked myself a total of maybe three times. I would have done so with a regular razor also. Ankles and knees sometimes get the best of me when shaving half asleep. It takes no more time than it did when shaving with a disposable. I have nothing but praise for the safety razor. I like it so much that I gave one to the chitlin girl for Christmas.
She left the next day to spend the rest of Christmas break with her mother. I had not thought about it since. The other day I remembered that I never showed her how to use it.
So I asked, "Did you figure out how to use the safety razor?"
She replied, "Yes, it took me a little while to figure out how to open it, but I got it."
"So how is it going?" I pressed on.
She looked at me quizzically, "What do you mean?"
"Well, have you cut yourself yet?" Bracing myself for the answer.
"Why would I cut myself?"
So, there you have it folks. The safety razor: So easy a 12 year old can do it!
