I was checking my amazon order history.....Shaving your head ain't cheap



It doesn't show the quantity of each order, but it was at least 2 packs per date.

Those $27.99 for 4 refills is complete garbage. I was sick of that which is why I'm giving this Darco a try. For the cost of 4 refills I basically got 20 refills, two handles, and maybe 12 disposables...

I was buying Mach 3's on ebay when I first started out over 10 years ago. Turns out they were all fake. Before that, I was buying them at the flea market. They were all stolen and I actually saw the vendor on the news after he and his crew were busted.

That was why I always stuck with ship and sold by amazon. Hopefully these Darco will work out. I will know after 1 head shave if they will hold up for me or not.

I just got my Dorco order in today. I shaved my head with their 6 blade and it beats Gillette's top of the line ProGlide

I haven't shaved my head in a few days so there is some hair. Usually the blade would be dull by the end of the head shave. There hasn't been a hint of dullness with the Dorco. This is with the 6 blade version with no trimmer. I don't know how well they hold up over time though. 2 times was always the max with my type of usage with the Gillettes.

I was paying $3.21 for each Gillette blade. Dorco is $0.95 before discounts

I'll be keeping an eye out for Dorco website sales and will stock up

One of the best gifts I've ever gotten, a double edge razor set:

Amazon.com: Shaving Gift Set with Merkur Safety Razor, Bowl, Shaving Soap, Badger Brush, Stand and Safety Razor, Great Gift Idea for Father Husband or Boyfriend: Health & Personal Care Amazon.com: Shaving Gift Set with Merkur Safety Razor, Bowl, Shaving Soap, Badger Brush, Stand and Safety Razor, Great Gift Idea for Father Husband or Boyfriend: Health & Personal Care



It does seem like a big initial investment, but look at how cheap a pack of 100 blades is:
Amazon.com: Derby Extra Double Edge Razor Blades, 100 Count: Health & Personal Care Amazon.com: Derby Extra Double Edge Razor Blades, 100 Count: Health & Personal Care

and I get two to three shaves per blade.

agree, double edge razor is the way to go... you can buy awesome blades for cheap and swap them as frequently as you like and still save a ton of cash.

I've been using a DE Merkur razor w/ Feather blades for a few years now.

Exactly why I haven't went to shaving my head, I just cut it with no guard, don't want to have to maintain it 2-3 times a week going forward. Already hate cutting my hair weekly.

Why bother with double edge razors when you use a straight razor. No need for replacement blades.

Re: Anyone a member of the Dollar Shave Club?

I just placed my first order with Dorco yesterday. Thanks to the OP for starting this as it looks like I can save a ton this way.

true, I just mentioned double edge razor because that's what I use.

When I first began using it I found myself finding times where I actually wanted to shave.

For people not too sure about double edge or straight edge razors check out this youtube channel and you can see just how easy it is:
