And that reason is because cartridge razors are more convenient and require less effort, not because safety razors were bad because they're not at all. My grandpa used a safety razor for his whole life and he had the closest shave I've ever seen.

Straight razor (but one that uses disposable blades, I need to leave room for someone 1up me bragging about their leather strop). It's a loving lightsaber and it gets so you can nip off a single stubble hair you somehow missed. The precision comes at the cost of a nasty loving nick or two per month for probably the first two or three months, after that you're golden unless you try shaving hungover, which you'll do about once or twice per month.

I still like using my whatever you call the regular razors. The 3 bladed kind or whatever.

Including if it gets too long and I have to run a beard trimmer with no guard over it I can still shave in about 4 minutes.

I can absolutely shave in a couple minutes with a safety razor.
Sure I COULD get a brush and lather and stuff and do the full monty with a pre-shave balm (awesome), and an aftershave, and all the fancy poo poo if I want to or I can still just use a nice shave cream (like the proraso I mentioned, or Cremo is alright (Here it's $2), I just like it more than canned stuff) rub it on and go to town just as fast as a mach 3 or 5 or 97 or whatever and believe me, I can let it GO. A LOT. before doing this.
Seriously, one application of shaving cream, one or two passes with the razor, blam, done. After you get used to it they ain't dark wizardry or hard on your face or anything. I don't really get too much razorburn or ingrown hairs regardless of which kind I use, because I use that good shaving cream and pre-shave stuff, cuz that's the poo poo that makes a difference (+ technique), but the cartridge ones get me redder or seem more likely to dry me out or something than the safety ones do if anything.

Yeah, Iíve used both and IMO the cartridge razors are better in every way except price. They are easier to use, and create less irritation for a given level of closeness of shave.

The reason why the old fashioned razor people focus so much on the technique and the creams and accessories is because they hide the shortcomings of the old technology and are needed to get a decent result.

taking these and crossing them with my garden babies to grow "HarleQueen Hybrids"

also I just spent the last hour outside in my far back yard where I have some sumac that grow in an area and I finally realized that a couple of them had gone too hog wild and were impeding my lawn mowing, as well as some of my trees back there desperately needed trimming. So I took my pole-saw and such back there and then squinted at it and said "gently caress that noise" and went and got my sawzall and tore the HECK out of them and cut down a couple trees thicker than my arms (think real life he-man) it was hosed up. Now I gotta trim up some of the mess I didn't make logs out of but I got tired.

Unless you're buying some sort of poo poo-tier potato that spends 3 months on a cargo ship, this is exactly true. My mother and father have a very extensive garden where they grow everything that our climate will allow. . . except potatoes.

When my father was growing up, they were not exactly well off, so him and his brothers each has 4 rows of potatoes that they had to maintain all summer (along with the regular farming work). Each row was ~100m in length, and they would plant, weed, and dig them up. My father and his brothers had other things in the garden they had to take care of as well, but he never resented them like he did the potatoes. One year when my parents expanded their garden my mom asked if they should plant some potatoes, and my father outright said that the store ones (Ontario grown potatoes) taste exactly the same, cost less than dirt, and don't give him nightmares.

Right now a good 50% of their 1km≤ garden is strawberries, with the other half being divided between the usual stuff (beans, tomatoes, peas, lettuce, onions, peppers, corn, beats, squash, cucumbers, spinach, carrots, cabbage, etc.)

Have you thought of just getting the handle and blades? I did that for years with just a can of barbosol shaving cream and it was fine. (Then my wife got me the soap, cup, and brush as a gift, not something I asked for.) You can shave it with just the foam if you want, as I also did that for years.

The benefit is that I bought 100 razors for $10 like 100 months ago, and use one blade once a month. So for the price of 2 Mach-3 blades, I'm getting essentially 50 times more (assuming you also use the cartridges one a month as well). If you ignore all the "twee bullshit", you're still saving hundreds of dollars a year by using a safety razor, if you change nothing else.

Yeah, I agree. I used an old-fashioned safety razor for like 6-8 years, and then switched back to a cartridge razor a couple of years ago after having used one on an extended vacation. The cartridge razor really is a better technology. It's not really as radically more expensive as old-fashioned razor proponents claim--the cartridges can be used for many more shaves than a double-edged razor blade before it makes the shave more irritating, although that doesn't totally make up for the price differential.

Yea, barbasol rubbed on by hand for me as well. I didn't do the math, because at this point the savings aren't worth the time, but a bag of poo poo Bics has got to be comparable or more expensive to a single, compact little box of razors that lasts approximately forever. I also had family assume that since I was using this super cheap razor for literally broke reasons that I wanted a bunch of random twee poo poo, so I have a badger brush, which I have never used.

Right? I love the guys who freak right out when you say you do things different from how they're used to and the invent some elaborate stupid backstory for you, so they don't have to consider your actual reasons. I don't wanna spend a massive amount of money on shaving my face therefore I'm a wealthy tweeboy who rides a pennyfarthing.

I was being half facetious. You will nick yourself a couple times till you learn, but you also won't drag a bic over your face a couple of times to get a close shave and end up with a ton of razor pimples. If your safety razor works good for you, then good for you. If 'safety razor' means the same in British English as American English, your way is anachronistic and unpopular enough you're lumped in with us, the twee people who don't have a preference, just a pathological need for attention.
