I just got an amazing deal on ebay for the Blade Torq 3 that fits the mach 3 handle, 30 cartridges for $9.00 I received them today and it was a BBS shave. So I ordered a bunch more.

I am going back to DE shaving the dome. Been using the DE on the face and its awesome. Only with the grain though. Will try that approach on my head.

I use a DE on my face , tried on my head , just not as good or as fast as my 2 blade disposable . Also too easy to get cuts. I donít find any advantage IMO.

Iím pretty new here and  have been shaving the dome for about two months now.   Iíve only used the extreme 3 so far and no nicks yet.  Pacific shave cream also, gonna try and find some cremo shave cream and possibly some shave oil.  Thank you all for all the info here!

I just bought a DE and some blades today.  A Van Der Hagen that I found at Walmart.  I plan to use it on my face to see how it goes and if well I'll see how it goes on the head. 

Prior to shaving my head for the first time earlier this week, I had been using disposables for years.  Now that it looks like head shaving is going to be a regular thing, I figured I'd play around and find the best way to do it.  I'm looking for the least amount of irriation.

That's part of the fun of headshaving, trying different products and razors. I use a double edge sometimes, just take it very slow! You will know if you have the right angle by the scraping sound of the razor. Just be sure to use quality blades.

I do have a headblade moto on the way!   Iím hopeful that will help to make the shaving routine a little quicker.  I know thereís going to be a learning curve Iíve always used a stick razor for my face.  And just recently for scraping the dome.   Iíll look into getting the dot I blades as replacements also

I tried the Harry's because of all their advertising on podcasts. But I found the head flies off the handle with only a mild tap.

Gillette Fusion 5-blade works the best for me.

I am mapping out my favored "GO-TO" shaving method as we speak.

I prefer a very close shave and a smooth result, so it seems most of the lower number blade cartridges tend to leave more stubble, which is not very efficient for me. No one wants to have shave twice. With all of the noise surrounding the Mach 3, I decided recently to give it a try and it didn't seem to consistently give me a close shave all over my dome.

However, the 5 blade cartridges seem to do rather well, but I'm still exploring the various shaving methods available.

Anyone have any new and improved insights as to your favored razor???
