Shaving is the bane of man’s existence. We all hate it, but we all have to do it (unless you’re in ZZ Top), so we try to find the easiest and most effective way to do so. There are a ton of razors out there, however, and the recent battle for the top of the facial grooming mountain is more heated than ever. Let this guide help you pick the blade that’s right for your soon to be baby smooth face.
Whether you preferring shaving with an electric razor, a modern multi-blade razor or an old-school razor, we've got you covered with tips and product reviews.
How many blades do they have now?
If the idea of sticking nearly half a dozen razors to your face scares you, don’t fret. Bic is still making their classic one-blade disposable, as well as affordable two and three-blade alternatives.
It may look like some bizarre bastard offspring of a handheld vaccum and a barcode scanner, but it is the only blade out there that’s designed solely for the purpose of head shaving.
Reviews & Guides
With so many blades on the market, with replacement blades for them costing anywhere from less than a buck to over eight dollars, you want to know which is the best. This in-depth review of all the major razors, from a one-blade bic to the Fusion, breaks each of them down by their pros and cons.

Fusion vs. Straight Blade
While most reviews on the web have been comparing the Fusion to the various other brands of razors out there, Jerry Zezima of Fort Wayne takes the five-bladed wunderblade to task against an old-school straight razor. The results may surprise you.
Straight Razor Guide
Gillette seems to think that four blades aren't enough, but if you ask any old-school barber, there’s nothing wrong with a simple one-blade straight razor. If done right, a straight-razor can probably give you the best shave of your life. But before you go and stick a newly sharpened six-inch blade to your neck, do a little research first.

Humor & Satire
The Onion Prophet Strikes Again
While the Fusion has been out since February of this year, The Onion predicted its arrival two years earlier with this piece of satire. Whenever The Onion successfully predicts the future another horseman of the apocalypse saddles up.
Six-Blades Of Doom
That Onion article was just a joke a year ago, and now it's reality. In 2007, when the six-blade Schick Cheese Grater comes out, this guy will have the last laugh.
