How good are Double Edge razors?
« on: March 26, 2007, 02:54:39 PM »
I know this may have been posted on this forum before but I have recently noticed a comment from a while back about a double edge razor and how great it is to shave with.  Are there others out there who use this type of razor and like the shave they get?  Please let me know your different reviews on it.  Thanks.

I just checked out a web site that Tyler had shown me on another post called classicshaving.com They had some nice double edge razors on the site.  The main brand name on that site was "Murkur."  Is this a very good quality safety/double edge razor?  I'm thinking of buying one to try it.

Tell you the truth, how would they compare to a Straight Razor Shave?  Or a Safty Razor Shave?  ???  Interesting Question
Peace

I've been using an old gillette double edge razor on my face that I bought at a flea market for about 6 months now. It took me  a while to get my technique down but I think it gives me a better longer lasting shave and the blades are much cheaper. I haven't been able to figure out how use it on my head though. Still use my head blade for that. Wouldn't mind learning how to use it for head shaving.

If you want to learn to shave your head with a DE razor, first you need better blades then the one Walgreen's sell. Get some Feathers (classicshaving.com) or some Derby of Israelis (e-bay). Second it's going to take some time to perfect your technique, first pass with the grain then re-lather and second pass across or against the grain. Third, it's always going to take longer to shave with a DE then a pivoting cartridge razor.
I've been shaving my face for several years with a DE, until 6 months ago I still used the Headblade on my head but I noticed that my headshave wasn't as goos as my face shave and I was purchasing inexpensive DE blades bought in bulk and expensive cartridges bought in pack of 4 & 8. I dedicated myself to learning to shave my head with a DE like Yul did back in the day and now I get a equally great shave on my face and head.

I knew I was going bald when it was taking longer and longer to wash my face
