I use whatever double edge or single edge safety razor I am using on my face.  I have over 30 razors and use the same razor until I need to change the blade. Then I go to the next razor. 
I'm not bald I'm follicly challenged.

Awesome! In addition to my headblade I also use and collect safety razors.  Head over to the safety razor forums, say hi, and maybe post a shave of the day

Happy New Year SBG Family!

Unfortunately, I have to retire my Gillette. Although a good razor, sadly it's starting to show its 50 years.  :'(

However, I just purchased a Parker 24C three-piece open comb razor. I've been using Gillette Platinum blades with it and getting a baby-butt smooth head!  :@`  The open-comb design makes head shaving a breeze and gives me a clean dome.

My Question is - how many uses do you typically get from your razor...?   After a week of shaving everyday - mine still seems pretty good...

I'd say about the same for me, sometimes a little longer depending on the blade and what I use.

I went buzzed during the cold months.  However, I returned to Sly this past weekend.  O0

These days, I returned to my Gilette Fusion razor.  Unfortunately, I've been having issues with DE (much as I love it) not giving me the shave I want as well as donating blood in the bathroom.  Also, with having to get my son to camp and me to work, the Fusion has been the better shaver.

I also been using Cremo with much success.  However, I may treat myself to Art of Shaving, or soap since my birthday's approaching! O:O

I am using Gillette Fusion 5 to shave my head.
It always makes my head slippery.
I am satisfied, but I am worried that the price is high. (^ ^;;)

I largely alternate between cheap plastic DE razors and a shavette. Occasionally I use a disposable plastic Bic type razor.

I recently bought a real straight razor (as opposed to a shavette) and got it sharpened. I'm also planning to buy Wahl Balding Clippers. My plan is to use the clippers for most of the time and do a weekly twice shave with the straight.

I'll use the shavette while travelling. I'm not a big fan of the disposable and DE razors because they don't give me great leverage for the back and sides of the head. I also like the straight and shavette for the fact that I can straighten the beard out well.
