    Just checked the website and it's not a bad deal. 1$, 3$ or 9$ depending on blade style, 3 blades a month shipped to your door. Also has an every other month option. They look to be Dorco brand blades. Just paid 30 bucks for a 6 pack of the Gillette's:yell: and looking for a cheaper alternative.

    Think you are better off buying them direct here: http://www.dorcousa.com/razors-men/ on your own rather than buying into a monthly service.

    Never used Dorco products, don't anything about their reputation for quality.

    yeah, that's what I thinking but didn't want to spend the money on a shitty blade. You use those? If so how you like them?

    Use a straight razor you sharpen yourself like a real man or just be like Bigfoot.

    Anything Fa Fa Flooey gushes over is something to be looked upon with suspicion. What working man has time to buy fucking razors in the mail?

    Never tried them, just did a bit of checking around when I heard about Dollar Shave Club on Carolla's show a few days back.

    THIS! 1000 times this!

    Forget about all that Gillette multiblade bullshit that's just jewing you out of money because it's made from thin shit steel that dulls after two shaves.

    Get yourself a DOUBLE-EDGE razor and some old-fashioned shaving soap bar and shave for pennies. Single edge razors last me a week per side and I have a thick beard.

    Why don't they make ceramic shaving blades that never go dull?

    if/when i shave daily i can get 2 weeks per side easily. i think i spend easily ~$0.75 (or less) per blade. the best deal i had was when we went to costa rica, picked up a 10-pack of blades for about $1.00, those were some of the better quality ones i have used!

    The same reason they don't find a cure for cancer I guess.

    because once you buy one blade you would never have to buy another. Hard to stay in business that way.

    This takes skill. My dad used this and got a good shave. How did you get into it?

    I use the disposable twin blade without that stupid moisturizer strip.

    i've been lucky, it has been pretty easy to use. if i want a super smooth shave i lather up a second time and go against the grain. most of the time it's just a single pass.

    i like old-school, vintage, traditional, guy stuff so my wife bought me one to try - love that thing (and the wife too...hey-oooh)

    What kind of razor is this? I been thinking about ditching my expensive rip off blades. You guys seem to like the one in the picture. Where can i get one?
