An update. This morning I finally used a blade from my new, recent order. That means my original purchase really did last me almost exactly two full years, an average of a blade per month. That is crazy!

The new handle came with a 4-blade razor attached. I'll use that one first, then transition into the three-blade box itself. This box should last through my first full year of retirement! Incredible.

If you want the most frugal shave, find the old school razor handle that opens by twisting the tail end. Buy the double edged razor blades. Take a large coffee cup and make a shaving mug with it by using the old school soap and a shaving brush. You can "sharpen" the blades with a bottle stopper cork. What yoy actually do is deburr the blade. They last a long time. Not the easiest or best shave, but cheap!

I am now experimenting with 5 blade equates rather than the 5 blade gillette. 1/3 the cost. I use lab series shaving creme. While i can now afford any level of shaving gear, unlike in grad school, when i used the old school method, i still seek value.

Based on the reports here I dropped a whole $23 or so on a Dorco with 10-12 5 blade cartridges. Handle takes a AAA battery, looking forward to starting to use it when we go to La Quinta next week. The Dorco website seems to be the cheapest option - now they are spamming me with great razor sales! Guys - it'll take me a year or more to get through the stuff I already bought!
