Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! So being in this hobby, I have learned all about steels and how to sharpen them. I have also used that knowledge to realize the companies like Gillette are robing us for a pack of 5 Fusion shaving razor heads! I just saw a new intriguing company called Supply that offers a single edge razor with 3 levels of close shave. I have a straight razor but find that they are not a good combo with being tired and sleepy in the morning along with rushing to get ready for work. Bleeding on the subway does not work for me or my fellow commuters, I have tried it. What do you recommend to use as an alternative to the expensive brands like Gillette that you have used and trust?
