Razor was getting kind of filthy so I cleaned and polished it today. I use a Gillette Super Speed safety razor that belonged to my grandfather. I was complaining about the cartridge razor I was using at the time, and my mother gave this to me. Have used it ever since.

I can't stand using electric razors and cartridge razors are just ridiculously over priced. I would like to try a straight razor one day, but the upkeep on them seems a bit much.

I still have original Gillette blades, but they tend to leave a rougher shave, so I mostly use Wilkinson Sword Co. blades now.

Though I would like a proper stand I like having the original case.
