Norelco electric razor. I'm kind of lucky that I can get by shaving every other day. On the flip side not all that great for trying to grow a beard.

I use disposable Gillettes from Costco, share them with my wife, shave in the shower without any shaving cream, and rarely with soap on my face, just a wet face.

Panasonic electric

I have never shaved the old way
I used to use an electric shaver , I liked it but I had to shave at least twice a day though, if I went out late I needed another shave. My dad used an electric one ever since I can remember. That is why I bought one when I could shave.

I had a friend the same way. He only had to shave about every three of four days. His younger brother grew a short beard in High School. He looked like one of the teachers rather than a student.

I've got my own little boycott of Proctor & Gamble going on: join me if you want to, don't join if you don't want to. It's a club kind of thing. At any rate, I have always gone cheap, cheap, cheap. I used cheap plastic razors that you buy at places like walmart or a dollar store.

The curious thing I do is to use shaving cake soap in a shaving mug. With a boar's bristle brush. This I began doing in the early 1990s once there was all this news noise about landfill being full of diapers and junk. . . like shaving cream cans.

A lot of people have this thing against P&G. Maybe it's related to the Patriots, after all, they play in Gillette Stadium.

The Gillette products are better, sometimes a lot better, than the cheap plastic stuff. But, if I'm only going to shave every two to three weeks, then the cheap stuff works, even if it only is good for two to three uses. The downside is the amount of waste. But it's better than shaving every day. I think that individual blades generate far less waste. Cartridges generate less waste but the razor companies charge more for cartridges than for disposables because they know that people want to generate less waste.

As far as shaving lotion goes? I just use the soap in the automated hand dispensers. That works well-enough for me.

I'm pretty cheap. My cheapos last 2 weeks or so.

There was that semi-famous correlational study some 25 years ago reported in The Wall Street Journal and elsewhere suggesting a link between electric razor use and leukemia. I don't think it was ever confirmed by other studies, but some anxious types fretted that it made some sense because the electromagnetic field from the razor passes very close to lymph nodes on the neck and lower facial areas.

Reminds me of the sexual perversions of the Roman Empire. Sad. Pathetic. Unmanly.
Maybe they have white chest hair and want to look younger by shaving it off. These are ordinary run-of-the-mill folk, so i don't think it's an unmanly thing. Must be some reason.
But some of these chaps also have their grey hair died henna and that totally is uncool in my book.

Razors have been identified from many Bronze Age cultures. These were made of bronze or obsidian and were generally oval in shape, with a small tang protruding from one of the short ends.[3]

Various forms of razors were used throughout history, which are different in appearance but similar in use to modern straight razors. In prehistoric times clam shells, shark teeth, and flint were sharpened and used to shave with. Drawings of such blades were found in prehistoric caves. Some tribes still use blades made of flint to this day. Excavations in Egypt have unearthed solid gold and copper razors in tombs dating back to the 4th millennium BC. Several razors as well as other personal hygiene artifacts were recovered from Bronze Age burials in northern Europe and are believed to belong to high status individuals.[4] The Roman historian Livy reported that the razor was introduced in ancient Rome in the 6th century BC. by legendary king Lucius Tarquinius Priscus. Priscus was ahead of his time because razors did not come to general use until a century later.[5]

Carvalho, who spearheaded Gillette's effort to grow market share in India, didn't want to rush into designing a product, though.

Gillette had stumbled once before with its early version of the Vector in 2002. The version of that razor had a plastic push bar that slid down to unclog the razor. The bar was added because Indian men have thicker hair and a higher hair density than their American counterparts. Adding to that, they often shave less frequently than American men, so they wind up shaving longer beards.

Gillette, which is based in Boston, wanted to test the product among Indian consumers before launching it, but instead of making the costly trip abroad, they had Indian students at nearby Massachusetts Institute of Technology test the razor. ‘They all came back and said 'Wow that's a big improvement,' Carvalho recalls.

But when Gillette launched the razor in India, the reaction was different. Executives were baffled about why the razor flopped until they traveled to India and observed men using a cup of water to shave. All the MIT students had running water. Without that, the razor stayed clogged.

‘That's another 'a-ha' moment,’ Carvalho said. ‘That taught us the importance that you really need to go where your consumers are, not just to talk to them, but observe and spend time with them to gather the key insight.’

Have you seen Novak? He got quite a lot of hairs on his chest of he doesnt shave. Only seen a couple of photos of him w hair there. So he removes it all the time. Wonder of he waxes it or shaving it.
Federer would have looked so much better if he shaved. I bet its hairs from his body on court after he has played there... on his bench... eww. Feel sorry for those playing after him.
But I do like hairy men too! Just that in sports and sweating its nice to shave.

Djokovic does a much better job of manscaping his chest than Federer. Switzerland does have a colder climate. This possible explains Federer's primal tuft. I don't feel a full shave is necessary but it shouldn't be left abandoned to become a bird's nest.
