Yikes!

This was in a flyer in Sunday's newspaper. That's how much the blades cost for the latest high tech razor.

I recall reading that the razor companies have a 35% profit margin on blades!

I can see why some maintain a two to three day growth of beard. Though how they get away with it I'll never know, none of my girl friends would ever have put up with it.

Ah, Sid, the inner working of your mind, associating beards with girls and not guys. So, we now know you find the bearded lady at the circus hot! Laughing

I went back to the old safety razer 2 years ago. Cost me $5 for a 5 blade packet, and a better shave. (just keep a lot of tissues handy at first to stem the flow of blood)

This summer will make one year since I went back to the old safety razor. It took some getting used to at first (I had to do an Internet search for the proper technique), but I get a closer shave and without the irritation and without the ingrown hairs, and the blades are ultra cheap.
