Uh-oh I can see a new war coming up ... Well, here comes my statement:
I have always used a Wilkinson razor. It is more classic than electric shavers are. It is also cleaner, closer and less expensive. But first and foremost I feel much better: the skin is smooth and refreshed, and I just couldn't stand all the noise an electric shaver makes. It reminds me of a big bug flying around my head.
When did I start saving? Don't know, sorry.

At least you don't have to shave your legs. When I was in college sitting in class one day, a guy took out an electric razor and started shaving right there in his desk. Wish it was that easy for us girls!

I have been using a Gilette Sensor Excel razor with Edge shaving gel since I started shaving at age 14. I find that anything other than that combination leaves my skin irritated and red with bumps...including electric razors.

When I am compelled by forces to shave I choose a Mach 3 and whatever foam/gel I have handy at the time. I often don't shave tho. I've had a beard for several weeks now. Started shaving at 13. Sideburns and Mushtache. The mustache became a source of mocking from my less testosterone laden classmates so I shaved.

Its gotta be the razor. It cuts so much closer, less painful... although not as convenient as an electric model or as fast.
I think I started at 13 when I got that little mustache and sideburns. Like Jessman, I was a bit ahead of my peers, but not as far ahead as this other guy who already had a hairy chest (lol), so I escaped the teasing.

Schicks are by far the closest razors in existance IMO. I replaced my Mach 3 with that a day ago. I use Gillete gel w/ aloe, however I want to switch to Edge due to my war against acne. Actually, the Schick helps with that. Electrics are just too damn expensive, and my Schick costs $3.79 @ the local Jewel store.
