  •  I went right back to the double blade cartridges (4+ / 0-)

    when I couldn't get the triple blades close enough  under my nose.   Generic.  They cost me a dollar or two more per pack here in the UK than in the US, but still cheap, and I stretch each cartridge out for a month, by taking care of the blade:

    Water is what dulls it, so after each shave, I dip it in a small glass jar of alcohol, then shake off the excess, to dry it quickly. And, after the first week, I hone it once per week on my blue jeans.  I've sometimes extended the life of each cartridge to two months, with a good shave, by doing this.

    I'm one of those lucky homos in a bi-national relationship - at the age of 49, all I had to do was give up my career, leave behind my dying father, my aging, diabetic mother, my family & friends and move to Europe. Easy peasey!
