So I’ve finally picked up a safety razor after years of using a Mach 3. It’s nothing too special; a Parker 96R butterfly double edge. For a long time I’ve been curious about trying a safety razor but the sheer amount of products out there was pretty daunting. Unlike the way I typically buy anything, I basically just didn’t research it much, and just went with whatever looked good in the first two pages of Amazon search results. I’ve used it 4 times so far and only cut myself once. Using it in the shower makes a big difference, moreso than with a Mach 3. I like the weight of it and the knurled handle, it gives a good grip. No more overpriced blades for this guy!
