  •  the last 15 years, I use either a straight edge (3+ / 0-)

    or the double edge. Back then, I bought a pack of super sharp double edged blades, which would not tarnish. there were 40 in the pack, 10 blades in each pack. The package ran $25. I've never used anything else. I still have a pack and a half left.

    The art of shaving with a straight edge is fun. If you have a japanese water stone, (apparently a diamond super fine grit works as well) and a strop, your straight edge will last you forever. Just don't let your hand shake, or draw the length of the blade.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
