I was watching a review on youtube about a new Harry's Shaving Box Set  I thinking about it for my dad for fathers day. https://www.harrys.c...n-set-engraved 

 

During the review he mentioned how he had been using the same razor blade for a WHOLE week.

 

I only shave once every 2 - 3 days, but I replace my rasor blade about once every ...uh ... I don't even know :D ... 2 months,.... maybe more? Or when ever it hurts to shave :laugh:

Since I work out of the house and don't usually have to deal with people face to face, it's per month.. usually 2 or 3 times. Basically when the annoyance of having a beard overtakes the annoyance of shaving.  The blades take quite a beating, so it's typically 1 maybe 2 shaves and they're toast.

The answer may not be simple and generic. It all depends on the type of your skin and hair and what you are comfortable with.

 

I normally shave on Monday (twice in a week if necessary to see a client or have a function). Always do it in a warm shower with a trimmer for coarse cut and then proper shaver for fine shave. Change blade every 10 shaves.

War, did you see the post I made on this last week? I think it's ridiculous how much blades cost so I was on this mission to find a cheaper method. Someone on that thread pointed me to Safety Razors. I'm only 1 week in so no real feedback yet. With the store bought razors I was shaving every 3 days with a new razor each time :( Single blade disposable.

I keep the same blade for about 2 months on average, sometimes longer.  I shave roughly every 2 days.  The key is the dry them thoroughly after you're done.  I seem to keep my blades longer than others.

For some reason the skin on my face is super sensitive. So back when i used a blade i had to buy super sharp razors and replace them often. probably after 15 shaves each.

 

Now i  use an electric shaver, and only have to buy new blade things for it every other year or so. Shave a couple times a week with it.

I put 16 shaves per blade and shave 1 time a week, whether I need it or not! :)

 

At 55 years old, still have a baby face, pretty much! :)

 

Had a drill sergeant in the Army back in 1977 that used to get mad as heck at me because I had 1 little peach fuzz on my chin that he couldn't shave off because it was so soft! He tried a few times too. 1 can of shave cream lasted me my whole 3 years in the service.

I use an electric razor. I've used two razors in the past 10 years (one is a backup in case I forget to charge the other), and I've never had to replace the blades on either. I use them every day and have never had to replace the blades.

I shave at most once a week and feel like the last razor I brought (which had 4 blades in the box) lasted me about a year.

I normally shave 3 times a week. I can grow a beard in a week. If I want to be clean all the time, I have to shave every day.

 

I use a double edge safety razor and replace the blade after 3 shaves.

Replace about once a month, shave 3 times a week with a Gillette Sensor 3 and a mug/soap and brush.

You realize you still need to replace the blades or mesh? They will get dull...
