Well, I use a straight razor (yes, the dangerous one...) since ages, and I feel that you could never find a better way to shave (I didn't know it was so sexy, by the way...). Of course it takes more time than the regular safety razor, so, when I have to run, I use the old twist-and-drop-in-the-blade (made in China, very cheap but working great after more than 5 years: so much for marketing, major companies and so on...). I tried all the others (Mach3 and all those electric traps included), and I am sure the straight razor will stay at the top of my preferences (Disclaimer: this may very well happen because I am a plastic surgeon in my real life...).
well, I used to go to a nearby public steambath and shave there using a razor of the blade variety. At present, I've no problems shaving as I've happily developed alopecia totalis and am on my way to alopecia universalis - both conditions which have certain advantages regarding the time and money spent etc on shaving and haircut.

Just got a Philishave 4609. Thought I'd see what all the 'rotary' fuss is about. Plugged it in for its 16 hour charge at 16:30 PST last night, so that makes 8:30 PST go time.
On my old Braun the light went out when the charging was done. Does anyne know if that's the case with a Philishave 4609 too? It hasn't gone out yet and it's 5 minutes past deadline. ;)
so did anyone get the electric razor as an XMAS gift?
i got some xmas cash and may treat myself to the personal groomer or something like it.
Thanks to this thread I got myself a Mach III for Christmas. I LOVE it. THANKS! to all the guys who posted their comments. It's way more comfortable than the old double-bladed razor I had, and I think it shaves closer too.
As to electrics: I have never had the $ to spend on a top-of-the-line electric, so I can't comment. The cheap ones I have briefly tried seemed like they pulled the hairs of my beard out of my face as much as shaving them off.

I know it. I have never kissed a man, however . . . One of my earliest memories: when I was very young the old guy next door used to toss me in the air and catch me, which I loved. But sometimes my face would slide against his five-o-clock shadow and ouch! -- my tender cheek would actually be red from the abrasion.
Can anyone recommend an electric shaver for around £50 / $75?
