"A Handlebar Moustache is indeed a glorious facial hair feature. Whether it stands alone or crowns some other form of facial hair, the glory comes from it being a 'Handlebar' and not simply an ordinary moustache." - Schnauzer

I use Gillette Quattro blades and razors...If you clean them carefully after each use; and of course you should clean your razor every time you use it, the blades will last a good while. The blades and handles are easily bought on EBay or other sites. New Guy Dean, Western Kentucky, USA

Just tried Rapira stainless blades, from mother Russia.
Not overly impressed, perhaps 5/6 shaves before replacing.

I just started last year so i am still experimenting, $20 Van Der Hagen Safety Razor, with Van Der Hagen blades, Van Der Hagen shave soap. Just bought a Dovo Shavette a few days ago and I made my own pre-shave oil.

i am a fan of Feather for most razors, and i like the Gillete Silver Blue.. especially in vintage razors.

but one of the best are some vintage Personna 74s. these were made in the early 70's and used Tungsten Steel, like what is used for the cutting edge of saw blades and drill bits. the 74 in the name is for tungsten's place in the periodic table of elements.

on most blades i might shave as many as 5 times, but the first one i tried of these has lasted me 35 shaves so far and still feel great.
i used the same blade in all of these razors and it is still going strong.

i am using some Single Edged razors lately just for some variety.

these Personna 74 blades were too good, the company could not make much money because one 10 pack could last someone a year. i am not sure if the company changed hands but they only sold the blades for a short time. you can sometimes find them on places like Ebay, but they often cost way too much. if you ever find some at a reasonable price you should give them a try.
