I prefer the feather blades, ridiculously sharp though! 😄
I went Double edge a few months ago, at first you will cut yourself but you will master shaving with one of these. Costs much less than buying Mach 3 cartridges and you can find pick and mix your choice of blades on eBay cheap as chips which will last for ages.
Good price.

Absolutely, I spent something like £10 for the full year!

I wouldn't recommend Feathers for beginners.

Highly recommend Japanese feather blades even for beginners provided they don't have an aggressive piece. A Muhle should do if you're careful.

Agreed. Though once you've gone Feather there's no going back....

I did, I used feathers exclusively for about 3 years but then discovered Astras, I'd tried a few different blades before settling on Feathers but hadn't tried Astras, I find them a brilliant combo with the Merkur 34c. I get as close a shave with the Astras minus the weepers (with the Feathers).

I have the Edwin Jagger but never use it, prefer the 34c but I know a lot of ppl prefer the EJ

Derby blades are awful though

I use feathers too.
I recommend feathers, even for beginners. Our whole family use them, even the teens. I've tried most blades and with the Edwin jaggers the feathers give the best shave. With a rockwell any blade works well.

I second that, & if anyone tries to swap sell you to the blue box instead, tell them where to go! ...I tried a derby blade the other day out of curiosity, ....iffy.
this is my shaver along with 200 astra superior platinum blades 5 years ago and still got loads of blades left to use and use it to shave my head and clean up the edges of my beard...
Edwin JAGGER...hmmm ...
and if you're a veggie/vegan who's thinking of starting DE shaving, add one of these to your order: amazon.co.uk/Syn…h=1
when I started years ago, it was quite difficult to get a good synthetic brush.

Try an open blade - even cheaper ie zero cost after initial purchase plus it gives you an extra +10 man Kudos points at the gym lol
Not so good for BSC though - and yeah i tried it ...nasty!!!!

Good chib to have in your gym bag too especially if you live in Glasgow!

I bought one of these 5 years ago thinking it would last a lifetime but soap scum got into the screw threads and knackered them up, leaving stripped threads after I forced it to unscrew. With the second one I made an effort to keep the screw threads clean of soap scum using a spray bathroom cleaner but that must have damaged the screw threads somehow also. Not really impressed with the quality of components. Another vote for Astra blades though, and Derby do suck. I also have a Jagen David butterfly DE razor too which I use when going away and which I am impressed with.

It it better then the Kent infinity?

Had it for a few years now, but the reviews on the one you linked and price make it damn tempting.
The thought of using a DE razor scares me. I think I'm GNA rip my face apart. Sell it to me chaps,what's the best starter set??
Yellow O'Clock blades or Green Astras were boyf's preferences. I've got a supply of Super-Max Blue Diamond DE blades and a Baili Rose Gold Butterfly Razor BD177 for myself (some Bailis are rebranded as Razorock, Rockwell, Vikings, Dorco Prime etc) - but I'm still trying to pluck up the courage!!

Quick review of the Baili on theshaveden and on Youtube - well-reviewed on Reddit and the usual suspects.

Boyf got into a Panasonic electric shaver for a while, and really liked it (sacrilege!) but seems to have wandered back into the lazy zone of using many-blade-disposables again recently.

What's a cheap source for feathers? Have been using my Indian blades up to now with reasonable results.

No need to be afraid of DE razors. The first time I used one I thought I'd cut myself badly but I didn't. Its actually pretty easy to get used. I'd recommend a Merkur 34C but other beginners start with an Edwin Jagger DE89. Get a decent silvertip badger brush and a tub of Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood shaving cream. I'd recommend you start with Astra Platinum blades.

I've been using this edwin jagger from amazon since jan 2014, and honestly never really had a problem cutting myself. I was using mach3 prior and they'd get so blocked up, they wouldn't even cut my hair. It was around the time gillette started pushing their new blades again and I couldn't get mach3 locally. I went looking online and sumbled across DE shavers, found a deal on here for them and went for it. Never looked back.
I think i might be a little skilled going by some of the comments tho, within a few months I was shaving like I was using the old mach3 turbo blades without a worry about getting cut, and because there is only 1 blade going over the skin per pass I found it was actually much better for my skin. Of course it's going to depend on your face, if you have dimples in your chin for example you're going to struggle more.

I did notice that Sainsbury's are doing a double edge pack now, sainsburys.co.uk/sho…704 I think it's all metal, a little better than the one Tesco was selling a little while back, but ironically Tesco no longer sell their DE blades anyway.

Thinking about how many DE blades I've used ofter the years and how much money I've saved is crazy, and now that I've gotten used to taking my 'bag for life' with me to the shop I'm wondering how much plastic I've saved by not buying the mach3 heads

This is mine. I got the chrome lined one, over 4 years back. It's still going strong. With the money I've saved buying DE blades instead of buying the throw away cartridges, I bought a house!
Joking aside, you are going to save a lot of money if you shave. You can pickup 100 blades for around £6 delivered off ebay. If you were to buy around the same amount, you're easily pushing £70 for something like Mach 3 if you were to buy 100 of them. I would say it makes you feel manly after you've shaven with a DE... but my GF also likes to use for her legs.
I would buy this razor but prefer a longer handle. My daily driver is a Merkur 23C, currently paired with Gillette Black. @Si__ please don't buy the Sainsburys blades, unless you want to experience death by a thousand cuts - Derby is a "premium" blade compared to these.

I get the same problem every couple of years, I just replace the razor. 16 quid every couple of years is not bad

I Would second everything said on this comment. I think the risk of cutting yourself is way overhyped IF you get a decent blade. I got the Merkur 34c too and was really worried about cutting myself on the first time but with a tiny bit of care that risk is low.

I'd also add that the saving you make from not buying cartridge is shocking. There's not many things in this world that are cheaper (after buying the razor) and better ... This is one of the few occasions when it's true.
For those of you who like Feather blades try Gillette Nacet. There's a chap on eBay selling them for £10 for 100 (seller in Jordan as they are made for the Middle Eastern market). Feather are the best but these are pretty close and a lot cheaper!

I actually ended up getting a Kent synthetic, can't fault it, but it was one of the few available. I've not used the one I linked to in Amazon, just pointed it out because you could bundle it with the Edwin for free postage. But, as you've said, the fair reviews and the even fairer price made me put it on my save for later list.
Safety razors?, this will be a first for me.
I've placed the order and it's due JULY 22-23, but it'll be early. It comes with 100 blades, and I added an extra soap to take it to £20+ to get free delivery...or pay £4.49 postage, so a no brainer methinks. Of course I could have spoken with a "prime member" friend, and taken advantage OF prime, by linking-up, but TBH, I couldn't be bothered.
