Just got thirtieth shave out of one disposable razor. I need to stretch razor expense in this time of hyperinflation.

You can stretch them even more. clean, dry, add drop of olive oil to blades.

Itís amazing how much one can stretch it even more by stropping the razor on a patch of denim jeans before every shave.

^^^^ this. I get 6 months out of 1 blade. I shave 2 or 3 times a week. Blades actually don't dull that fast. They rust. You just can't see it with the naked eye.

I used to shave with a safety razor and a cup of soap and brush. You can sharpen those double edge blades in side a glass peanut butter jar with a little water in it. Just slide it back and forth on the inside of the jar. I would shave for years with the same blade, while the new ones in the pack rusted.

Same here. I worked ten years in the oilfield and they made us be clean shaven in case we had to wear an SCBA to work on an h2s well. I told my wife if I ever leave the oilfield I will never shave again. Got laid off almost three years ago when oil tanked and havenít shaved since. I trimmed once for a job interview, and once because I singed a good bit of it on a propane heater while ice fishin lol
