    $500 per year to Shave

    That's what this video says it cost the average guy.

    Avoiding razor burn on your wallet#

    This totally blew me away. I spend a fraction of that. Bought the following safety razor for about $30 about 10 years ago and then a box of razor blades at wal mart for $5 or $6. German made product. It's good stuff.

    Amazon.com: Merkur Classic Safety Razor, Straight: Health & Personal Care

    I clean it and dip the whole razor in mineral oil between shaves and basically a blade will last me a year doing it that way. Shave's great. You just need to learn to use more short strokes, but it's a much wider blade than most "modern" razers so you cover more area with each stroke.

    Guys, you don't have to spend $500 per year!

    Re: $500 per year to Shave

    Seems like you'd have to shave 3-4 times a day to hit $500/yr.

    But what do I know? I'm well below average.

    Yeah, I listened and I want to know how long the typical person uses a razor. I shave twice a week and use a razor for probably 3-4 weeks. With shaving cream, I would think that I probably spend no more than $75 a year on shaving.

    Nah. One rusty burning Gillette blade per year. Those are expensive!

    I started ordering from here and have saved a good amount of money. It is the same quality as big name razors. (no these aren't high quality jerseys)

    First thing I thought of when I saw the title is that he's over here now trying to hawk his baby oil shave lotion crap.

    And for the record, how in the hell do you spend $500/year on shaving? I know I'm not a hairy dude, but I think I'd have to shave about 10 times more than I currently do in order to spend that much money shaving in a year.

    Good timing with this thread - I cut myself shaving just this morning.
    Nothing worse than a wound on your ***.
