" There is an alternative if you dare to try it out. I, like you Joe, got sick and tired of buying the razors constantly. The only reason to avoid buying razor cartridges frequently is to buy a lot of them at once. That of course makes me cringe whenever I end up spending 60+ dollars on just those. Expensive as hell. So the cheaper way is this:
The razor itself costs about 30 bucks which will last you forever. Buy it once and that's it. There are no cartridges but there are razor blades, much much cheaper. I use these blades with the above head:
You can get about 100 of these for less than $20. I get about 5-6 shaves out of each blade so we're talking about 500+ shaves for little next to nothing. Yeah it's an old school way of shaving but it works. This gives me a much closer shave than the Gillette Mach's I used in the past. "
