Your razor blades.

Really - we got the original Mach 5 at Chez Chataya in a box of Star Wars Legos...it came complimentary. Best leg shave I've ever had.
On the Gender Fail thread, which we shall let fail of its own accord, a recent razor discussion was brought about...and I think it belongs here, in a nice home of its own. By the way, I think the average single use ladies' disposable razor (Daisy) is utter shit, since I always nick myself with it.

Disposable twins when travelling, which aren't as good but still get the job done.
I had an electric one for a while about ten years ago, but I didn't like it.

Anyway, the Fusion is my razor of choice, with Fusion Proglide blades. Yes, yes... I'm a victim of marketing and whatnot... but I've tried all and sundry razors and a fresh new Fusion Proglide treats my face something awesome. I even went the safety razor route after some convincing marketing by Ini in one of the shaving threads a couple of years ago. It was ok, but I still preferred the Gillette razors.
I can stretch a Fusion cartridge for up to a month and still get a decent shave. That's probably because I never shave against the grain; only with the grain and perpendicular to the grain.
eta: I had a Fusion Power at one time. It didn't work any better for me than the normal Fusion.

My experience with the stuff over 3 blades is that they get more ungainly, (as has already been noticed on this thread) and that they seem to clog too easily and be difficult to clean. For example, my dad gave me two different Schick razors with 4 blades, in both cases not enough of the hair rinses out after using it for a few passes and it seems like it's not effective anymore.

I've tried too many razors to name, and am on the verge of going electric. As an added perk, I dont think my wife will be using it.

Gillette Venus here. I used the Mach 3 for years and loved it, but my mom bought me Venus (hate the name) stuff a few years ago and I loved it even more. I like the extra plastic stuff around the blade; with the mach 3, the blade felt a little floppy around my shin and ankle, but with the Venus, I feel more stable. I change the blade every four shaves, so like once a month.
Interesting the love for Gillette here. None of the girls want to trim their bushes with the Shick Quattro Trimstyle for Women?
