    If they are going to support Burn, Loot, Murder, and Antifa, they can do it without my money.

    Not sure why razor companies keep thinking its a good idea to get woke.

    Switched to Harry's Razors instead. Their social mission is to provide help to Men. Mental health care, support, and so on. A company that recognizes that men are getting the short end of the stick in resources these days, I can get behind.

    I switched to a double edge safety razor several years ago. Best decision I made.

    Grab a Gillette black beauty from the 1970's or 60's (long time ago when they was Fab), and a 100 pack of blades, and you're good to go.

    Good on you. I hate random companies who feel the need to publicly express their politics when their corner of the market has nothing to do with politics.

    "To look sharp every time you shave,
    Just feel sharp with Gillette blue blades"
    1. double edge shaver alternating with (now I have to order on line) Bic shaver. The single edge Chinese shavers in the drug stores should stay in the PRC. Brush on Col. Conk Products (it makes a better lather than aerosol can stuff).

    I went to a 1957 Gillette Fatboy about six years ago. I shave my head about once a week too. I believe I have spent about $30 on blades to date. I bought some German blades of Amazon about four years ago and they are awesome. One of the best investments ever.

    Thanks for posting. I use Dollar Shave and will definitely think of switching. Besides their social mission, are Harry's razors any good? I tried the double edge safety razor and it did not work out well. :eek:
    (Interesting, a Harry's Razor add just popped up at the bottom of this thread)

    My wife said Pepsi gave 'em millions so we won't be having any Pepsi products in our house.
    That list of donors is long, it will be difficult to avoid all of them.

    I wish ALL companies would just stick to improving their income statements and balance sheets. I suppose they think supporting the likes of BLM and Antifaux is positive "marketing/promotion".

    Just wondering what the hell happened to maximizing shareholder value and forgetting the proselytizing.

    I'm going to start looking for a solid double-edge razor. Should have kept the one I had in Basic Training. A 1957 Fatboy sounds real good. :D

    Harry's are excellent. Give a closer shave and feel smoother while shaving. Highly recommend.

    I used an injector type razor for years. Tried a double bladed one and used IT for many more. I was convinced the 3-blade Mach III I got as a gift was gonna be my last change. Tried the 'Harry's' 5 blade (FIVE blades?!?!) and, again, I was pleasantly surprised. I am SO easy!!! Been using it for months and was astounded at the difference. Maybe I'm not really a Luddite....

    I went to a strait razor, one with replaceable blades, called "shavets". (I probably have the spelling wrong). Taught one son to shave with a strait from the start. The other one went Duck Dynasty style. Dollar shave can pack sand. Thanks for the info!

    Wow, a shaving thread. Look at that. Rockwell 6s never misses, especially with Gillette Silver Blue blades. A prewar gillette tech for those that need vintage.

    I would drop Harry's so fast. It would be nice to find a donor list. If Hostess cakes were was on it I think I would just die.

    I have worn a very short beard for years and only need a razor to trim around it twice a week so I just buy razors at Waldo Mart. Getting my beard caught in car parts makes me keep it short:fred:
