Well I always get ADD with my hair and facial hair for that matter (but one is more affordable and quicker to change easily ). So I finally decided I get bummed every time I shave the goatee, I will do it for real this time. Gave some good grow and went and had a professional shave and haircut... definitely worth the $80. I have wanted to try straight razors for a long time, I have bad skin and have tried just about everything else to see if it helps... I am sure part of the comfort of the professional shave was the prep work and fourteen products and sprays and creams they use, but omigosh was it awesome. The whole week afterwards shaving with my cartridge razor was even WAY more comfortable. Thinking to save money and skip the maintenance (no stropping or honing) I will start with a shavette that uses the disposable razors (you get the double edged blades for a safety razor and snap them in half). Get about a years worth of blades for $30 (assuming 300 shaves a year, 3 shaves a blade). And those aren't the bargain brand either. Anyone else use a straight or other non-modern method of shaving?
