I have just ordered a OneBlade razor after reading so many favorable reviews about it. This may sound stupid but I am concerned that because the OneBlade is such a unique experience that it may ruin me for my other razor. I’m afraid if I really get to like the OneBlade I will never use my other razors again.

So my question to the OneBlade users is, do you still enjoy using your other razors? Right now my AlumiGoose is my favorite razor, will I still like it next month?

It's all about preference.  I do agree that the OneBlade is a superior shaver, I prefer it to a lot of my other "nice" razors.  I do use a shavette a lot as well and considering selling a lot of my DE Safety razors here soon.  Again, its all about preference, space, cost, etc.

I find I have to remined myself to use my other razors. I sold off almost all my DE's. I only have a Futur left in DE and I haven't used it in 2 months.

I have used the OneBlade almost exclusively since I received it 2 months ago.  My goal in shaving is to get a close, comfortable shave while getting some enjoyment from the experience.  I value comfort over closeness, so I don't strive to get a BBS shave if that comes with irritation and heaven forbid blood.  For me, a DFS is fine.   For my beard and shaving technique, the OneBlade is my best razor. And I get BBS, BBS-, or DFS+ shaves from it most of the time with little to no irritation.  Even with the OneBlade, my neck is still a problem area for slight irritation.  If you find a razor that best meets your shaving goals, you will naturally reach for it more than other razors unless they provide something you feel is missing in the OneBlade.  


BTW,  I still have my eye on the much anticipated Bullgoose SE.

It would be easy for me to use the OB as my only razor. While I have sold off several nice DE razors I still have 3 left and someday I will get an email that the two Wolfman razors I ordered last June are ready. After the newness wore off on the OB, I settled into a routine of alternating every other day with one of the DE razors. That serves the purpose of a little variety and not going stale on the OB. That may work okay or I may sell something else off once the Wolfman razors arrive but I think it's highly likely the OB is going to be seeing a lot more use than any other razors.

Of course, OneBlade is just another fine addition to my rotation.

Rotation schmotation for me. Each shave I keep reaching for OneBlade.

This is what I'm afraid of. If that's the case I'll Pif or sell my other razors. Maybe just keep one razor for each blade I have, ie one DE razor, one Gem razor, one Feather AC razor.

shave/brush, that is a legit question.  I only have 2 shaves with the OneBlade, and I was wondering the same thing myself.

But don't you now reach for the AlumiGoose more than any of your other razors? Is it such a bad thing that the Goose, right now, beats everything else you have? And would it be such a bad thing, if the OneBlade ends up beating your Goose in the same way?

Why not reach for what gives the best results most? For me, that's not something to fear, but to embrace... And like many others are discovering, for me that best, perfect razor is the OneBlade.

Maybe some have been looking for their Grail razor so long, that they're afraid they might actually find it...

What I'm afraid of is that the OneBlade so different. Unlike say the AlumiGoose which is my favorite razor but it is similar to most if not all my other razors.  The pivot in the OneBlade for example puts it in a class by itself. Maybe I'm over thinking this right now. I have to wait until I try it next week. From what I've read here it's as you say the holy grail razor for most guys. It may just make my other razors seem obsolete.

I sold off all my DE's after getting the oneblade. I have the SS goose,which I still love--My OCMM and ALL my injectors(about 15 different styles) have not been used since I got the oneblade. But I am sure
eventually I will throw them in once in a while

I can see the writing on the wall. The OneBlade is going to make all other razors obsolete. Why use something else when you can get just as good a shave with less effort and look classy as the same time with the OneBlade.
Maybe I can sell all my other razors as a package deal.

For me, there is no good reason to use anything less than the best of what you have and can afford.

I asked the same question in another thread, and there was some interesting answers: http://shavenook.com/showthread.php?tid=39422

Well, had my first OneBlade shave this morning and all I can say is WOW!  Closest shave EVER on my chin and upper neck area, places where I generally have problems.  Probably the closest to BBS I've ever had.  Zero nicks, weepers, or irritation, even with the touch-ups to get the closeness.  Wasn't hard to find the angle; reminded me a little more of a DE shave than a cart.  Such a good shave on first try I'm ready to place a bulk order on the blades, but I'll hold off, at least until tomorrow!

I'm thinking I'll probably get 3 shaves per blade, based on my DE experience, but we'll see about that.  Not planning to sell my DE's (yet!), but if this experience keeps up, they'll definitely be slow getting into the rotation.

I got my OneBlade yesterday and will have my first shave with it tonight.  Glad to hear how much you enjoyed your first shave with it 'Red One'.
