Without wishing to get laughed off the thread, I would like to add that these types of razors can also be used by women.
I switched to a DE razor (Merkur 23C Long Handle) in a bid to reduce my plastic/waste footprint, and i have to say that I have been more than impressed with it.
I was terrified for ages to take the plunge with one of these razors, but to be honest its very easy to use and i was needlessly worrying....
I use mine alongside a basic olive soap and its literally 1 sweep to cut the hair on my legs instead of the several sweeps I used to have to do with my plastic Venus razor.
My legs have never been so shiny and soft... I would certainly recommend DE razors.

Any good for my pubes?

Not sure on quality compared to the usual, Edwin Jagger, Merkur and Taylor of the bond.
Worth a punt to add to the collection.

Great starter razor. Got me in to DE shaving and helped me transition in to a Merkur eventually. I still keep it for travelling. Changing the blade is very easy.

Nice weight to it, blades fit snug in them too, I can't complain.

How easy is it to shave with one of these when you have only ever used Gillette?

Easy and I have not touched a Gillette in over 10 years. I just watched a couple of YouTube videos on the best techniques. Slow and steady with a good foam and use the weight of the razor. No need to push down. I jumped straight into the merkur.

I agree with be_vigilant with the YouTube videos and slow and steady until you get used to using a DE razor! I used cartridge razors up until 3 years ago when I got annoyed with the cost and irritation with using them! Took a punt and got an Edwin Jagger DE89 and wouldn't go back! Go for a good shaving creme/soap (not the aerosol stuff) like Taylor's of old bond street and a pack of blades will last you ages at a fraction of the cost of "normal" blades!

Easier than you think! I have used cartridge razors until a year ago where I made the switch.

I didn't read any tutorial nor watch any YouTube videos and went straight in! For me the trick is to not put any pressure while shaving and you'll get a clean shave.

I also find the shave a million times better than any cartridge razor and easier on my wallet.

What's are the blades you are using ? Feathers ? I used to used the Boots ones - I think they were called Personna

Definitely. Be careful not to slip though they cut really good.

A couple of days ago i ordered 100 wilkinson sword blades for just over £10 from ebay. I used one today and they are really good blades. In the last couple of years of DE shaving i have tried loads of blades (shark, derby, personna, feather....etc) but i always go back to wilkinson sword as they are sharp but very smooth. I have an Edwin Jagger DE89 which is a great razor which should last a lifetime and a cheaper feather butterfly razor which i use when travelling as it is lightweight and comes in a plastic case to hold the razor and a pack of blades.

Bought one of these 18 months ago to replace my much more expensive Edwin Jagger , and much prefer the Jagen David . Butterfly blade changing is so nice compared to dismantling the razor head all the time
Also got a 1964 Gillette Slim Handle Adjustable (same as one in Goldfinger) again butterfly and a beautiful razor
Anyone reading this thread still using disposables at extortionate cost should invest in some good DE shaving equipment and enjoy the huge cost savings and in my opinion the much better shave !!

People offer quite generic advise on these threads. People have different types and thickness's of hair so adjust the advise to yourself. I would defiantly check out a few youtube videos as you would rather learn the basics from the video than cut yourself by shaving the wrong way, it's pretty straight forward.

Start slow the first few times until you get gist of it. You can use shaving foam, gel, oil etc. Don't think you need to have a full ritual every time you shave with the razor and shaving foam. I found the most time efficient way for me is to use a thin base layer of shaving oil and then use shaving gel on top. Experiment with it and find your equilibrium.

Just make sure to NEVER forget you are using an open blade. Enjoy!

Can't go that much wrong with some of the classic Gillettes, I rotate my Executive, Rocket, Slim, etc.
Searching on ebay is my trip to the sweet shop.

What about the B40, a couple of quid more, also on sale?
I've no experience of any modern brands, but now I've seen these, might try one out.

The Edwin Jagger one I had barely lasted 15 months as the thread went due to corrosion

Replaced it with a cheap Butterfly type Razor which is a doddle to clean in comparison
I'd never go back to anything but a butterfly now!

Have used this for the last several months very good de razor higher recommend

Rebranded Chinese Weishi. Id suggest investing a bit more into an EJ DE89, you won't regret spending that bit extra.

Agree with all spent about 15 quid on blades 4 years ago but they are running out now so will have to spend another 15 to get through the next few years!

Also can't recommend enough the arko shaving soap and grab yourself some Alum specially for the beginners (although i still use it :P)

Cyc

I'd recommend getting a selection set of blades and seeing what you like, my Dad gave me a huge box of cheap ones which I like, not greatly sharp and quite forgiving.

I started wet shaving with a DE razor 10 weeks ago. I thought the first shave I would cut myself and not have a close shave. My experience was actually the exact opposite. I've gone down the rabbit hole with collecting razors, shaving brushes, creams and soaps.

Never heard of this razor but would strongly recommend the Merkur 34C which is what alot of beginners start with and alot of veterans regularly use. The Edwin Jagger DE89 is a close second.

It has been five years since I switched to DE razor thanks to HOTUKDEALS members. Never looking back and shaving every day. I used to have really bad irritation but since DE it’s gone. Plastic footprint and my wallet is much better as well.

What's the difference between say for example this DE razor and the ones that you can get on eBay for a couple of quid? I use the one from eBay and it works fine?

Surely the blade that you use dictates the quality of the shave

It is down to feel and weight mainly.
if it is an adjustable then the quality of the mechanism comes more into play.

I have a Merkur 34C which is excellent, but i/'ve also bought a knockoff of their Futur model from aliexpress and it is great too.

YMMV as with anything.

Sorry to hear that, I hope you received a replacement as they are covered for 3 years.

I've been looking at a few of the butterflys but not settled on one yet.

If the cheaper eBay special isn't machined properly, then it will hold the blade crooked such that it will not sit flush on the skin and then it's more likely to cut your skin. I'm not saying it will, just that it may.

What's the point of this retrograde shaver when I can get perfectly good. ( Throw away blades )

If you don't mind waiting you can get a non rebranded one direct from China for £3.87

Get out young man and don't make me laugh again

I suffer from ingrown hairs. With my Merkur (short one) I found I could shave my cheeks , under lips fine with no irritation but my neck would end up raw. I watched the Videos on YouTube (That American or Canadian chap) and posted on badger and blade but no fix.

When I passed the razor across the back of my hand I could feel it scratching the skin. I presume it was my technique with the open blade.

I'm keen to go back. My current combination is the real shaving company cream (from savers), Gillette proglide finished with Anthony Logistics ingrown treatment / Shaveworks cool fix afterwards. Works ok but it's all a rather expensive setup and I say has 90%cured the problem

I used to have ingrown hairs. Since I started using double edge razor the problem is gone. I use Merkur 570 Chrome "Progress" Safety Razor at the moment.

Anyone use these to shave their head?

I normally use the Wilkinson Sword disposable razors with flexible blades that work pretty well in not leaving lacerations.
