Used to use mach 3 but since switching to Harry's I wouldn't use anything else.
Plus you can choose a green handle for the blades and all the packaging is green too .
Most supermarkets stock them now.
How do you think they compare in terms of price? Could be tempted to give them a go. I usually buy Mach 3 when they're on special for a 24 pack at Costco. Can get about 2 years out of that!

That is what I do, but in Morrison's or Semichem.

The fancy ones with multiple blades can be okay but the head is too bulky to do that wee bit between your nose and top lip. They are adding so many blades to the thing that they are becoming so heavy you need both hands to lift the fucker. As for those swivel head ones aye well you just go ahead and take your chances with that one if you’re brave enough but just make sure you’ve got plenty of tissue paper and plasters before you start as for the price don’t get me on about that.
In recent times settled on Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5. I'm not sure if they're better or worse than others mentioned here but they do have a top edge that can be released and swung down so that you can get the blades around your nose etc. Works well, you can even get the blades up your nose and give your brain a bit of a scrape if necessary.*

The swivel headed ones can swivel. They're a health risk.

*I haven't tried this.

I forgot to say I did try Boldking for a while.
They had 3 different blades. For soft skin, ordinary skin and tough skin.
I tried them all.
Hopeless.
You'd have thought Gene Hackman had been practising his barber shop routine for Mississippi's Burning.

Dunno how it compares in bulk but a lot cheaper than Mach 3 and a much better shave

That’s a good idea wished I’d thought of that.

Get yourself a safety razor. Been using one for many years and love it. Blades are unbelievably cheap. You'll have to find what you like but my god, the Japanese blades are beyond sharp.

Haven't used one for years but quite fancy the idea. Any recommendations for razors and how many shaves do you tend to get from the blades?

Just get yourself a normal safety razor. There are some expensive ones out there...you don't need them. You want one that has some weight to it. I'm American I think mine cost about $40 or so and it's great. Regarding finding out which blades you like, I recommend going onto Amazon and buying a variety pack that will have many, many different blades from different brands. You'll go through the pack and find out what you like and don't like and then you can buy what you like when you run out.

Thanks a lot for that, it's appreciated. I see now I'm reading a little about it that there's far more too it than I remembered! I thought all blades were pretty much the same but I see not. Talk of more 'agressive' blades and razors. That's great, thank you. 👍
