    I was speaking to a friend of mine about shaving and he was saying oh yeah I've used the same razor the whole time I've been shaving, about 5 years. So I said well yeah, you don't throw the handles out, just replace the blades. (he uses a cartridge) and he said ... um.. no.. I mean the blade part. How the hell is that even possible!? for the record he never looks like he shaved with anything other then a butter knife but wouldn't that start to hurt and get rusty and gross after a while?

    You need to point out the little plastic cover over the blades. The cartridges shave much better when you remove those plastic covers :)

    I didn't realize the Infinity razor had been how for so long :happy102

    I told him I replace my blade every 3-4 shaves and he was absolutely shocked.

    That's disgusting- IF he's telling the truth. :eek:

    I very seriously doubt he was lying, he said it like he had absolutely no idea you're suppose to change them.

    Wow! Can you say poorly shaven masochist? :happy102

    Back in my dark shaving days I'd stretch it just to save a few $'s but I doubt I ever went for more than a month with the same cartridge. The horror!

    Does he have a beard or does he just shave really really light peach-fuzz type hair?

    gatto *Not a dude*

    he has a pretty coarse beard, definitely not just shaving peach fuzz

    Oof. Well then that sounds brutal.

    He might as well be shaving with a camping knife.

    the weird thing is he really didn't seem to think it was weird. Like nobody told him you change the cartridge at least once a week. He also said it works fine :happy102

    It sounds like the whole Gillette multi million dollar advertising campaign was lost on him.

    I hate to say this but slip a couple cartridges in his stocking this year, that oughtta hold him for the next few decades!

    I wasn't thinking of a straight up lie, but more like exaggeration or otherwise modifying the truth.

    But how could he miss the fact that the blade gets dull and clogged? I could never get more than one shave per cartridge. I'd get serious irritation and burn if I pushed it past one. I can't imagine what this guy suffers through!:sick007

    This is awful. 5 years on a cartridge. Heck, D.Irving79 doesn't go that far. He only uses a blade for a month or so before he get rid of it. :happy001

    Your friend is nuts I think.

    Maybe he has a really good prep method and the whiskers are just super softened. A dull knife can slice butter. :happy102 Something tells me that is not the case...
