    Those real men amongst you who dare to use a blade: what do you find is the optimum number of shaves per blade/set of blades? Three for me, certainly no more than four. Starts to not shave cleanly after that and I can feel it pulling.
    Reckon it saves time personally because of the lack of applying shaving cream. At 6am those 20 seconds matter.

    Feeling wrong for being clean shaven ATM, but needs must this week.

    Normally trim it down to 'designer stubble' length - partly failing attempt at vanity, mainly I look 14 when clean shaven. Happy to leave it a month TBH, as it tends to grow quite neat, and stops in rather a neat line before it reaches my neck

    So much AWTA.

    Use an electric because my skin is sensitive as ****. Need to shave every second day to be passable for school.

    Try to avoid shaving as much as possible and I like my stubble look. Don't have a permanent razor, just use disposable Gillette Fusions which last about 3 shaves each for me.

    Razors or bust. Can't stand electric. I've been using Gillette Fusion for some time now, waiting for something with 6 or 7 blades to come out though. Have to shave once a day at the very least, sometimes even at lunch.

    Double edge razor, your face will thank you. Made the switch a couple of months back, and now cant believe I even tried those fusions and machs.

    If anyone is in London, pop down to George F Trumper's in Mayfair and get a wet shave. Takes about 45 minutes to an hour and it's fantastic. They use the old cut throat razor and all. Brilliant.

    45 minutes?? I'd probably start dozing off and he'd lop my earlobe off by accident.

    Nah it's fantastic. They put the proper stuff on to soften the whiskers, ask you whether you shave with or against the grain, do the hot towels on the face, use the razor then put the proper balms on afterwards to stop the skin rashing up then put on the after shave of your choice.

    And it's all done in an old Victorian style barber's with the traditional chairs and all. It's great.

    Leave some stubble.

    This does result in the neck hair issue that Brumby has mentioned.

    Yeah have definitely thought about it. I think I like the fact that since I don't have too much surface area to actually shave, with a Fusion etc. I can just do it on the fly. I take way too much time on maintaining my beard and that usually leaves very little time for actual shaving. I suppose that can be resolved by using a trimmer, but I just love working on my beard with a pair of sharp scissors. I've never actually used a trimmer unless it was to help me completely shave my beard off.

    That does sound pretty sweet...
