Buy a Safety Razer and Save

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

I just read a great article in Money magazine about buying a safety razor.  Yes, the kind you see in old movies.  The safety razor costs about five times more than a typical multiblade cartridge razor, but they last much longer.  According to Money it’s about $30 a year for a safety razor vs. $50 and up for the cartridge refills.  I’m going to give it a try.  Two brands are mentioned in the article, the classic Merkur and the Edwin Jagger 89L.

Who would have known there is an actual Blog site for shaving.  Check out: There are a few videos with safety razor shaving tips.

The site has a great selection of razors and you can order just about anything from there.  However, I did find the best deal to be the Merkur razor direct from  Free shipping from as well.
