On the bright side, several people in the comments at the site I found this pointed out the benefits of traditional shaving.

Hans,I use something called a "razor pit" to keep my blades in tip-top shape,it's simply a strip of silicon rubber which I use to clean any "gunge" and the such like from the blade,I can honestly get 4/5 MONTHS out of a single blade (using it every other day)it's very cost effective for me,I know carts can be expensive but NOT if you can drag each blade out for month after month.
I use nothing BUT carts.

I heard good things about the Razor Pit from guys at work... main reason I use DE is that I get a much, much better shave.

As for the funny picture - back when I did use carts I had to make the last one last, and last, and last... simply because I forgot to buy new ones Tongue

If you have a light beard and shave every other day using one pass a cartridge might last a while. However, manufacturers meaning Gillette and Schick don't want the blade to last too long because that is where the big profits are.

Jerry, I use a three pass technique,up,down then a sort of sideways stroke,the razor pit keeps the blades sharp and clear of any blockages.
