    just curious, how often do you change your blade in your shaver/razor. i.e. Mach 3 Turbo or whatever, like after every 25 uses or what?? it's such a gradual dulling thing i really dont realize it's not cutting well until its pulling my hair out.

    I use the disposable two-blade pieces of crap, and throw them away ever 3-5 uses. Also depends on how furry my face is when I shave.

    I get 2 weeks out of one of those mach 3 razors... I can't use one of those cheap bic razors, even when they're new. Electrics are useless with me.

    Even 2 day growth is coarse and wiry, and it takes a while to shave it down, so I have to shave every day, and I can even do with shaving twice a day.

    That's probably more than you wanted to know, sorry.

    I only change mine once a month or so but I only shave once or twice a week, sometimes less than that.

    LOL, I'm such a cheap bastard, I change 'em when they start to pull instead of cut. I dont use 'em every day either, I shave with a cordless on my way to work most days.

    I don't know for sure, but it seems like I get about a year out of my Mach 3's. I only shave about once every two weeks though... just when it starts to itch. I'm too cheap to buy new ones all the time, I wait 'til they won't cut anymore.

    Back when I was married, I went through blades real quick and didn't know why, so I started to complain about the blades (Mach 3's) being junk and said I wasn't going to buy them anymore. My wife (back then) says... no, you can't stop buying them, I use your razor for my legs". Then I knew why they were always dull... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :doah: :haha:

    I use the mach 3s too, i actually read the label and when the blue strip turns green your supposed to get a new blade. I was using the same 4blades for about a year and finally got around to buying some new ones and man what a difference! Then again i only shave once a week.
