    I disassemble my DE and SE after every shave. Dry all parts and the blade then reassemble. Doesn't take long. I reckon 90% of my shaves are with a straight, so for me maintenance is just part of the deal. But I am a bit OCD.

    I shave about the same asTathra11. Disassemble and dry after each use
    My preferred blade is Gillette Nacet (Russian)

    You should always remove the blade and let it air dry in between shaves. Stainless can rust you know.

    Try Personna Hospital Blades, they are very good.
