not a cart hater but no longer a cart user.de gives me a better shave with no more bumps or ingrown hairs,plus the older school cool factor.i like vintage gillettes;some of these razors have been used and abused for decades and they are still holding up strong.was shaving with de razors this much fun in the fifties? or was it just a daily chore then? gillette marketed razors lots in the old days,with many different models and 'improvements' but people get great shaves from their new sc and 40s aristocrats. in the end new isn t always better. de shaving is just one of many shaving options,not the only option.were nt gillette razors and blades expensive back in the day?
