DIRW: Razor's Edge
I've tried just about every razor brand, plus pre shaves and after shaves. Everything is OK. Nothing great.
I tried Harry's razor's a few years ago. The company started another advertising push, so I decided to try it again.
Let me back up for a moment. Harry's is a discount razor company. Blades cost half as much as the big guys. For years, it was on-line sales only. The stuff is now for sale in Target. Harry's is a big advertiser on Tony Kornheiser's podcast. I was walking through Target recently and I decided to give them another try.
I e-mailed the company, asking how many shaves I can expect from each blade. The response was six to eight. Considering the price, it's reasonable. The company was right. They start to dull up real bad after six. I unwisely stretched it out to ten, and that was a mistake. I didn't get nicked but you can really feel the pull.
You can get a lot more shaves out of a Shick or Gillette cartridge, but you will also pay a lot more. When it comes right down to it, the price per shave is really about the same.
Does It Really Work? A qualified "thumbs up."
