No pro tip here - I never could get used to the straight razor. I do love

my double-edge razor, though. I pretty much never ever nick myself with this razor (see link).

A blade last a week, and I also buy the Personna blades (from beautiful Verona, VA) from Amazon in the 100-count. Ignoring the cost of the razor and shave cream (or soap), I shave for around $0.10 a week... and I like it better than the four- and five-blade contraptions. My objective is to retire - not to help the guys working at Gillette to retire!!

Admittedly, my single-blade safety razor doesn't shave me as closely as the two-, four- or five-blade razors/cartridges, but I'm not going to be on TV. [Note: those times that I want to shave closely, I use the safety razor first, then while my face is still wet, run over my face with a 2/4/5 razor. The resulting shave is close, and the expensive cartridge lasts a whole lot longer than when used as the primary razor.]
