Baby oil and a small sheet of denim.  Dropping the razor in baby oil prevents rust between shaves, rust kills the blade FAST. The denim takes the burrs out of the blade by running it backward over the denim a few times, giving it a sharpening effect.

 

Been using the same razor head since the New Year (Mach 3). I shave 3x a week and don't have sensitive skin. If you shave more often or have sensitive skin this isn't a valid option.

After years of searching, for me, this is the best shaving soap/cream there is.

Like compl3x above, I bought one of these:

I paid about £150 to get set up with rare-ish blades that will last me about 40 years.  The storage space is tiny.
You may want to look at the Badger and Blade forum, which is primarily USA.  Many folks on there will send you free blades when you have a few posts and actively ask questions.
You can also find sample packs of creams, soaps and blades on auctions sites like ebay.

what is the name/manufacturer of these 40 year blades? Thanks!

I think it's the quantity of blades that will last him 40 years, not the blade itself. :)

Which industry do you work in?

 

Unless you work as a dive instructor or perhaps in a clean room (medical/micro technology etc) where PPE can't really fit over beards, then no work place can really forbid you to grow a beard.

They can certainly call you out on "dedicated growth". As in, you can't attempt to grow a beard, then shave it off, then attempt to grow again... 

 

Perhaps in the food industry, they may claim that it is "unclean", in which case as them to provide research and evidence that beards are more unhygienic than long head hair or otherwise. But then again, (In the UK at least) your employer must provide appropriate PPE for your job - a beard net/ninja mask. :shiftyninja:

 

And if it's "dress code". then check your employee handbook to see if it is explicitly written. If not, they haven't got a leg to stand on.

 

 

... apart from maybe sack you. In which case, employment tribunal!  :D

Yeah, I meant the amount of blades I bought (either 1000 or 2000, I can't remember!).
