    I also do not care much about whether I shave, unless I'm going somewhere or until the beard gets long enough to irritate me( 4-5 days). I use the electric when I have a day's growth and need to go somewhere or when I'm on a vacation trip. Most timeshares have low water pressure and it is hard to clean a blade shaver without more water pressure. For 3-4 day growth I use my old Shick Injector razor which is great for a longer growth, shorter growth gets the Gillette twin blade.

    My first razor was a Schick Injector. I bought it at the px at Fort Knox. I didn't know they still made those.

    I don't think they do make the razor any more - I think mine may be 25 years old. I still can buy blades tho. Schick had factory in or near Milford, CT in the 1960's.

    Just checked and the razor is available on Walmart.com for 29.99- blades are still sold around $1 per in 7 packs and available at Walgreens.com

    I bought my last set of replacement heads for my Norelco shaver through Amazon (and yes, I linked through here). I am thinking now that they were counterfeit. Cuts poorly and the logo caps fell off all three cutter heads in a week. I have replaced the shaver heads several times, never had such a poor set.

    I think I will soon get a whole new shaver. I'll probably go to Costco and pick up something from them.
    Or...just let the gray whiskers grow.

    My tip: Go to one of the few remaining razor shops and try it yourself. Otherwise you will get as many tips as there are brands and beard types.
    That's how I ended up with this one https://productz.com/en/braun-series...lectric-shaver.
    I have been using a Brown shaver for years now and I have not met a better one yet. And I have damn tangled hair on the chin, jaw and neck.
    My attempts with Philips have quickly failed because the system is unable to straighten and cut tight-fitting hair.
