    They are the good razors. People don't use them because they are expensive, compared to a Mach 3. Except, the commercial razors are now expensive. I pay about $25 for 4 blades, so I stopped shaving.

    This is probably the BEST thread I have seen posted on BHW in a long time.

    Everyone needs to read that. There are so many amazing points laid out in that case study.

    Great share!

    Even cheap safety razors destroy those shitty multiblades. Cut throats are even better. Safety razors also cost like 1/20th the cost of a cartridge replacement.

    You've fallen for the marketing.

    Just reading this now. Very interesting thanks for the share.

    *By the way most multiblade razors lose their effectiveness by getting clogged with foam/gel/skin oil/dirt/hair. Just rub them in the opposite direction on your arm hair a few times and they are much sharper than before. Source: really cheap bastard !

    I love to read posts like that. Very smart man, and not afraid to give a little advice & encourage competition. I think everyone should give that article a good read (and even the links he provides too, all great information)

    Thanks OP for posting this, I hope a lot of readers get some much needed good info from it.

    PS I especially liked the last part of it, about the Naysayers: NEVER let others opinions (which are rarely fact & are based on their narrow-minded views) hold you back from what you can be & what you can accomplish. Most importantly of all, don't let YOURSELF be one of those naysayers. Like Kanye said, " That's the main thing people are controlled by.. their perception of themselves." And most DON'T have the confidence, weather it's because of parents, friends, whatever the reason.. But the TRUTH... you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to..
