hi i got the gillette mach 3 turbo, was wondering how often you guys change the blades.. the refills.. ive had mine for at least 3 months and i got cut while shaving today so ill change it, before i used an electric one so not sure if this interval is average or good or bad
I have the same razor, though without whatever makes it Turbo. Mine lasts about 5-7 shaves. Sometimes you'll get a really good blade that will just last and last. Sometimes you'll get one that's giving a crappy shave the second time you use it. I'm partial to nice, sharp razors, so I probably change mine more often than most people, but a couple weeks of use is probably fair for one of those razor heads.
Originally posted by Hostex Australia I know someone who used the same electric shaver for 23 years without changing the blade on it
I don't blame him, 23 years ago, they made some of the strongest shavers. Sometimes I like to go to the barbershop to get shaved, the old man uses those old old knives.. you know, the ones if he misses he can slit your throat.
Ooh, I've heard there's nothing better than a hot shave at the barbershop. That's sort of like the manly man's version of a day trip to the spa I gotta get my face shorn by a professional one of these days and find out for myself!
heh... year old blade? it'd probably end up doing more 'shaving' using his comb...

I change blades every few weeks also. I once was working in Germany for a few days setting up a pilot computer system and I forgot my blades. I asked the German guy who was taking me to my hotel if we could call by a store because I forgot my blades. I purchased a pack of 3 and I was there for 4 days and he said... your 1 short. Will you not shave on Friday morning??? LOL. I said... I will be fine I used 1 for the week.
Are people from Germany extra careful when it comes to blades? and making sure they change blades every day?
