The nicks is my objection to the cheapo razors. I can get 6 months on a 3 blader shaving every other day. I can't get a week out of the cheapos before I look like I ate razor wire for lunch.

I bought the biggest 3 blade cartridge package there was in Target before I retired September 2018. I still have about 4 or 5 left.
Are you referring to cheap, off brand, dollar store multiblade razors?

I'm not really sure. Both in the USA and here they are sold at the checkout counter in supermarkets/mercados. I have used them both here and the USA and they don't work well at all.

You mean the kind the barbers use? You have to bring it because I wouldn't know where to buy one. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
This is what I mean. La Sirena or any large store should have one. I bring blades from abroad but they're available at any colmado. Amazon has excellent blades from japan, about 10 cents a blade when bough in a box of 100. That's enough for years...

But the blades here aren't stainless and they rust quickly

I remember seeing Barbasol (I used to shave with it many years ago, hence it caught my attention.) What I can't do at the moment is remember in what store. It was a supermarket, maybe Nacional, maybe.

That's what I'm thinking too. Nacional or Jumbo. They are notorious for running out of things, however.

LOL Are you serious, joking, play on words? I confess I missed the joke unless it's an actual place
It's an actual place - in Sosua. A great shave. 2 barbers - and VERY popular. They also do all the fancy head-shaved designs.

I have tried Harry's before..... OK, not great.

But they had a promotion the other day - FREE!!
always gets my attention
The hook is you need to buy a load of refills - then can cancel the refill program

I have never seen one of those here. But, then I was not looking either.

100% safety razor all the way! Get one in Amazon, plenty of good stuff, then you can buy Bic blades here for dirt cheap. Once you get the feel, it is actually much better than the multiblades cr@p!
