Bought a old style safety razor and 100 double edged blades today. I'm just tired of spending $14 every month for a razor or $23 for blades. Those multiple blade razors are too light weight and don't shave as close as the old style razors..... 100 blades for $7... Initial cost - Parker 99r heavyweight razor - $68 Parker silver badger shave brush - $65 Shaving Soap - $3 Bay Rum aftershave - $0 made my own!!
