    Cant add anything to cart… Shame. Wanted a razor and afew 100 packs blades.

  •  

    are these type of razors and blades still available.

    •  

      Everything in the post is still available until sold out. Are you having trouble ordering?

  •  

    wow never realised how cheap it was compared to cartridge razors, now I'm kicking myself when I threw out my dads old safey razors.

      You will kick yourself even harder when you find out what some of the old safety razors go for.

    •  

      Absolutely! It's a different sales model.. Larger upfront razor cost ($50-$100) but ongoing costs of blades are dirt cheap ($0.10 a blade approx). Compare that to the cartridge razor model of very small razor cost, but huge ongoing costs of blades.

      A good quality razor will last you a lifetime.

      •  

        Interesting. How do these things quality razors fare doing some precision around goatee/thin mo?

        I'm still using the Gillette sensor excel heads given they're compact as compared with all the newer fat head triple blade things they market mostly now.

          They are great for this. If you have never seen one of these razors in real life they are small and nimble.

          Just from a blade exposure perspective as well, remember these are just a single super sharp blade. On a cartrdge razor with 2/3/5 or however many dull blades, you're increasing the width of the cutting surface so it's much harder to be precise.

        •  

          @theshaveshed: excellent. Will take a look at your pages for something.

          @fookos: If you are new to safety razors, a closed comb will be gentler on your skin while you get the hang of it. If you find that you like it (and most people do after giving it a proper go over a week or 2), then you can look at longer handles and open combs. Also, get a selection of blades as each blade is surprisingly different, and what works for you won't necessarily work for someone else.

    Never used a safety razor, will I cut my own throat?
    And what sort of shave do they give compared to my Schick 5-blade thingy?
    Also can I use my regular shaving gel or do I have to get a brush and soap etc?
    The $93 one in the OP, is that ok to use if I don't have a beard?
    Out of all those blades listed, which ones are the best quality?

    Cheers

    •  

      No you won't cut your throat, only tickle it slightly to get a little blood out.

      Seriously though there is some learning curve to these when you start. The head doesn't pivot, so you have to attentive to the angle the razor is making with your face. After a few shaves it becomes natural (like anything else) and you will be super quick. So yeah you'll nick yourself a few times at the start while you're learning I'm sure.

      The blades are extremely sharp. I first got into this because I suffer from bad shaving rash, or at least I did. With these, I can shave day after day with no pain, no irritation, and no ingrown hairs.

      •  

        Thanks. So can I still shave during my morning shower or do I have to do the whole sink/hot water/mirror thing?

        •  

          You can still shaving in the shower but use a mirror for sure when starting out.

        •  

          I would highly recommend the whole thing, but then again I could never imagine shaving my beard in the shower - depends what kind of growth you're dealing with.

    •  

      Go the iKon for sure, especially at this price. We have never sold one for less that $150.00 during regular trading. Solid stainless steel, a lot of weight to it. This will last a lifetime.

      The Merkur is also good but it's one of their lighter models, and it's good to have some weight to the razor.

      We only have one iKon left though!

      •  

        dammit, I have an older Ikon DLC? combo razor (one side OC).
        I definitely would have picked up the Ikon had I got in earlier

    •  

      nah, that's why they're called safety razors ;) the blade isn't completely exposed like a straight razor. Occasionally you might nick yourself if you're careless around your lip area, but I've managed that with cartridge razors too.

      the difference between a safety razor and your Schick will depend on the thickness of your beard to an extent. Using a 5-blade razor used to be a nightmare for me, like carving a ham with a butter knife - but now I can glide through my thick stubble quite easily and without the discomfort. You have to be slightly more aware about controlling the angle of blade, but I find that kind of satisfying anyway.

      the big advantage though is the money you save (this being OzBargain). I use Astra blades and each one lasts longer than a 5-blade cartridge ever did and they're 15c each.

      •  

        I get about 4-6 weeks out of a cartridge with daily shaving if that's any indication?

        •  

          Dammit. Out of stock.

          What's the next best option, the Merkur 40B or the 15C?
          And what blades?

        •  

          wow, compared to my experience with 5-blades you're doing extremely well.

          maybe you're just tougher than I am lol, I reckon by the end of my second shave with a Gillette 5-blade it felt like it was doing more pulling than cutting. Like I said I've got some nasty steel wool going on though.

          if you're happy with what you're getting it might not be worth the switch - the tilting head would be helping a lot if you're shaving in the shower and giving that up might force you to change your routine a bit.

    Do you have a number I can call you on to discuss a couple things?

      that's got more weight to it than the 15C starter pack above and a much more forgiving head design (sorry OP).

      I started with a 15C myself and it was fine, but I moved onto a nicer razor with the classic head fairly quickly.

      •  

        So once I'm okay with this I can move on?

        •  

          no, I'd recommend going straight to the 1904 I posted, sorry that wasn't clear. Will be even easier to learn on and you may never feel the need to upgrade because its much nicer and heavier to begin with. I upgraded to a similar razor and have been happy with it for years.

          the 15C is a very cheap entry point if you're not sure though.

        •  

          @diamondd:

          What else do I need to get started?
          I usually get irritation and lots of cuts using a normal razor unless it's freshly new.

          Is cream/powder all necessary ?

  •  

    225 for a straight razor? Don't mind it if it's 100.

  •  

    What should a noob be looking at? My neck cant handle anything. Always flares up. Cheers

    •  

      I started with the razor and some blades, went Coles bought a tube of stuff you just rub on (came in tooth paste tube in box) no more red rash since.

    •  

      I had the same thing, hated shaving because of it.

      at a minimum you just want a DE safety razor and some nice blades - I like Astra platinum and Feather the best. Getting a brush and a good cream makes a big difference too though if you're prone to irritation - the Taylor of Old Bond Street stuff has been my favourite.

      finally technique is important too, shaving with the grain and AFTER a shower will make things a lot easier.
