Thanks for the responses. Sounds like it's a bit different for everyone. I'm sure I'll figure out what works for me the more I shave. Only done it twice so far with the stock blades that came with the safety razor, and will be trying some new blades soon.
General Discussion / Some recent pics of myself

Well, next month will mark 4 years of being sly for me. I've been really happy with it. Here's a few recent pictures I took last weekend, at Conesus Lake here in western NY. Honest opinions, do I look as good as I think I do and as everyone tells me?

Shave your head , beards are not for everyone. Give the head shave a try , only way to find if you like it. Give it 30 days for you and others time to get use to it.
I use a DE for face shaving only. I tend to keep a count on use , Both sides I use indiscriminately. So no I donít count by sides. My picture is a few years ago , no beard at this time.

well facial hair doesnít work for everybody it doesnít work for me thereís nothing wrong with a beautiful totally clean shaven look
It's a good question. When I use my DE, I fuse both sides of the blade and I only use a blade for one shave. BBC here,so I have to do my whole head and usually do my face too. The blades are only 10 cents, so it's cheap.
Safety Razor Head Shaving / Do you keep track of how many times you use each edge?
« Last post by djflo on July 07, 2020, 03:21:25 PM »
Hey all!

I'm just barely getting into DE shaving for my head, and one thing that perplexes me is the lifespan of a single DE blade. Whenever someone gives their opinion on how many shaves a specific blade gets you, they always say something like "3-4 uses". No one ever seems to address the fact that there are 2 edges on each blade. When people say a blade can be used "3-4 times", do they mean per edge of the blade, or just in general?

And if it is per edge, how do you guys keep track of which edge you're using? Do you pick which edge you're going to use for that shave, and then make an effort not to flip the razor over while you're shaving?

Or do you guys not keep track of shaves-per-side, and simply flip to the other side if you feel like you aren't getting a good shave?

I feel like I may be missing something because in every shaving tutorial I've ever watched, no one has mentioned anything about this, so apologies if this is a ridiculous question!

I agree too, that it should be their decision. Like I said, I go to car shows and sit around with our group of about 10 guys. About 6 of those guys are holding on to a few scraps of hair, and they seldom remove their caps. At least one other guy is a headshaver, and we tell the other guys how much we enjoy shaving. I wish a couple would decide to try going sly, and ask me for advice.

I agree with you Harry, but I still have an opinion that guys with advanced MPB look better shaved.  I may even suggest shaving to guys I know.  If they don't shave, that is their decision and then I leave it alone.  I respect their decision.
