For reasons I won't bore you with, I made a personal decision that I wasn't going to use Gillette razors any longer, so several months ago I set out to find a decent alternative. On many web sites I visit I had been seeing adverts for "Harry's Razors". Then one day I happened to see these for sale at Costco so I decided to give them a try! I can report, after a couple of months use, that I have found a new razor! I have been very impressed with how nice these razors shave and also impressed with how long I can use one blade cartridge before I have to change it. They seem to last much longer than the Gillette brand. I have not yet tried their shaving gel, but I intend on buying some in the near future.
