    Braun electric. Ive had the same one since 05. Works like the day I bought it. Alittle expensive at first but well worth it.

    Are you really a Marine asking what to shave with? Use the KBar

    When I got drafted in the US Army, I would get kicked off guard mount. The Sgt of the guard said how in the hell are you going to use that in a fox hole. So after having to dry shave a few times I got rid of the electric shaver. Also with a razor blade you get rid of the dead skin onyour face.

    Not an option for many of us.

    I can go with shaving every-other day and still be socially acceptable.
    If I shave with an electric, I look like I haven't shaved for 2 days. That's with a Norelco rotary. Non-rotary are even worse.


    My choice?

    Shaving is all about the prep work.

    Pre shave oil, beard conditioner, good later with a quality brush, and a good after shave. Having a quality blade doesn't hurt either. (Merkur safety razor)

    I'm using Jack Black (not the actor) products, and they are by far the best shaving products I have ever used, and I've looked and spent a lot of $$$ on lesser quality shit.

    When you have to shave in a matter of minutes, you find time. Now that i dont have to do that, i try to atleast make it comfortable ;)

    I use gillette fusion blades and also gillette series shave gel with moisturizing. I use to have the same problem as you when I used some other shaving creams. You can also find a good after shave moisturizer.

    For some, but for me, I like BBS. The only place I'll tolerate any "feelable" stubble is my chinline... and it's impossible to get that area BBS with anything including the Fusion.

    I do still use the Fusion on my head. I've used the straight a few times and it works fine, but I find a shower-shave with the Fusion to be a good balance of convenience and comfort/quality.

    Interesting thing... When I'm in a hurry and opt to shave my face with the Fusion, I have FAR more sting from my aftershave than after shaving with the Straight (unless I go bugnuts trying to get BBS on my chinstrap).
    That's my favorite of the six in my rotation.

    My facial hair is very coarse and dark, no electric razor for me. I have tried everything to get a comfortable shave. Currently I use the disposable Mach 3's or the Pro Glide razors. After three uses, I have to replace the blade. As far as shaving cream, try an actual cream such as Kiehl's. Its pricey but worth it. Target carries an Every Man Jack cream which is pretty good too. As far as aftershave I use the Nivea stuff. Use warm water, rinse with cold. Also try shaving in the shower instead of over the sink. You'll notice the difference. There ya have it.

    No...this is how real men shave.

    Thread revival.

    Got this bad boy in the mail a little while ago. Not my first...but now my favourite.

    Fredrick Reynolds from 1825-1890.

    All original pins, scales etc.

    Amazing shave. This thing is a damn dreadnought in terms of being beefy and heavy. (But not really, because actual dreadnought points are entirely different.)

    I have fast-growing facial hair. I call it the "just stepped out of the shower shadow" I use a combination of a 5-blade razor and a two-blade. Sometimes I shave twice. I usually just use edge fusion gel or whatever is sold at Costco. I have found that you can use too much shaving cream. Sometimes I go over what I shaved with the two-bladed razor after I am done shaving to clean up what the other missed.
