Shavette's Are Out:

After getting an extremely bad shave yesterday that was beyond horrible, I have decided not to get any more shavettes. I picked up a Magic branded shavette that uses a double edge blade that is split in half for $8 U.S. dollars. It was an epic mistake and I'm still feeling the effects to this day. Starting today, I've had to go back to my Weishi 9306G DE safety razor until I heal up. I will now have 2 scars on my left jaw from 2 different shavettes. The first one came from the Feather AC non folding japanese style shavette which costs more than some straight razors and the post shave was beyond horrible. The second one will be from this Magic branded shavette which couldn't hold a blade to save its life. No matter what I did, the blade just would not stay in place. My Parker Barber SR1 was real good at holding a blade and had plenty of weight behind it, but it was extremly hard to put a blade in and it often got clogged up worse than any of my DE safety razors. So now that I'm 0 and 3 when it comes to shavettes, I have decided to rule them out. As far as giving away the shavette that I bought yesterday, it's a no go because I can't in good coscience give away something that doesn't work and can be extremely dangerous. I'm basically out of one double edge blade and $8 dollars.
