Default Mach III Turbo Users: How many shaves per blade?

I get around 4-5 really good ones, then the blade starts binding up going against the grain. It's an expensive razor blade!

Get them on Ebay. I bought 20 blades for 19 bucks. It would cost you about 40-50 in most stores.

Search for seller razors4all

I can get a typical work week out of it pretty well (5 days), and then maybe one or two days after that max (if the blade holds up).

Learn from the Body Shaving master!




Face should have its seperate Razor...Mach 3 or whatever..4-5 times before rough...

Purchase a Venus 3 for the balls, underarms and whatever you so desired. Teh extra padding works wonders on close shaves when it comes to the nuttz! Gooch Shaving is also very easy...

I inherited the ape gene from my folks, so I gotta shave my back too! (Funny, neither of them have to!)

That takes a lot out of the blade.

I hear I can get it zapped off permanently but it costs like 1-2g. Too pricey.

Anyone get zapped with the laser?

Tip:


To Maintain Manhood buy only the blue Venus 3, pink is a bad sign.


But seriously, those razors OWN.. Best razor for body shaving hands down...I have never cut myself anywhere with that thing...its a champ

If you soak the blades in mineral oil when not in use they will last much much longer.

4-5 shaves for me. Don't know where I saw it but I read that keeping the razor blade in vodka works to keep everything sharp.

I've been on the same blade since like jan. I hate buying the stupid things, so i just keep using them. When they get too bad i look at the old ones i have, and pick the least crappy. They all do the same job, right?

My facial hair has teh suck. Chin is fairly thick, but the rest is rather raggedy. I have posted my "razor forever" method before. If it doesn't work well for you, I give you approval to start a "Unabomber has teh suck" thread and blast me and my mother about how much of an idiot I am. Try it.......you will be amazed at how long your razor lasts.

I get about 2 weeks out of mine, or about 5 days after the little lube strip has worn down to the white. I have a fairly thick growth, but I shave with the grain, not against it.

I'm with JK here...until the strip is white...then I still use it another couple of weeks.

I shave every other day, and I seriously use one blade for months at a time. I just never get around to changing them...plus, those things are freakin expensive.
