    Did anyone notice that add for DE blades at the bottom?

    A month of shaves from a Cart? any Cart?

    Now I have to use a cart when I travel by air and don't check a bag.
    I still use a brush (battered piggy something) and a Palmolive stick or a cream..
    And my Straight skills have improved my cart results...but I prefer to live in the past..when it comes to my daily shave.

    I had a thought at one point, I wonder if now that I know how to shave if the shave with a cart would be ok. It was not. It was still uncomfortable and did leave me with a rash, while using all the rest of the good stuff. From this I have concluded that the multiple blades and fixed angle are not for me. My sone said once, every stroke you take with a multi blade is like making three to five with a straight. I had not thought of that math before then.
    I am also wondering why I am writing in a thread about something I don't like. Honestly why do I bother with negativity.

    It's funny but I got away from carts for two reasons, 1) they irritated me so badly that not a day went by that I didn't have blood on my collar and not from cuts, just from irritation! 2) they were so expensive.

    Since I took up DE shaving and then moved to straights, I can get a reasonably irritation free shave from a cart. Do I enjoy the experience? No! Have they come down in price? No!

    The other main point that seems to be forgotten is environmental impact! How many of those carts are in a land fill that needn't be? Don't get me started on the one cart = one month nonsense. If I didn't change mine every week I wouldn't have a face left to shave.

    Still you have to think that maybe we are getting to them, but I would have thought the bigger threat would be DE shavers. I think they outnumber straight users.

    In most parts of the developed world Electrics are the choice. The U.S is kind of the last bastion of blade shaving. When you get to third world countries that's where most of your DE shavers are. That's why most of your DE blades are manufactured in out of the way places.

    I hadn't considered that as the reason for the blades being manufactured there, I always assumed it was because of production costs. Here in the UK wet shaving is still pretty popular. At least with the people I know. Most of them still use cartridge or disposable I have convinced one friend to venture away from carts and he is a keen DE or SE user now.

    I for one waited like a kid at Christmas time for my new Westholme strop. I don't think I was ever so enthusiastic about spending a small ransom on a pack of blades that were destined for the bin.
