What color is your beard hair?
State your age.
How many shaves do you get from your favorite blade?

I have grey to white facial hair, 51, and I get one to two shaves before the blade goes bad.

Haven't been DE shaving long enough to know what my favorite blade is.

GO!

I used to try to get 4-5 shaves per blade. Anymore I just pitch after 2 or 3. No reason to push it.

Feather and SI are my blades of choice.

Gray 63 4-5

When I moved up to Oklahoma for two years, I had to get an OK Drivers License. In the USA, there is always a long line and lots of people waiting. As I took my paperwork up to the counter to get my photo taken, the clerk looked at my sheet, looked back at me, and said: "Sir, are you sure you don't want to change that hair color." The whole place burst out laughing, including my wife. That was the day I had to finally admit that my hair was indeed gray and not the "brown" I saw in the mirror............
