The one thing I don't understand from reading threads of this nature is how on Earth do some people take so long with a DE? The only reason DE shaving takes longer for me is that building lather from soap is slower than squirting it from a can.

DE shaving is more fun, so you take your time and do pass after pass after pass. A cartridge razor is no fun, so you whizz it around your face once and be done with it :D SCNR

Takes me as long to shave, well, with a cartridge as it does with a DE.

I can shave badly with either.

Now I've managed to control my RAD, SAD and BAD, DE shaving is actually cheaper than using cartridges, all be it that I'll have to stick to my good RAD and SAD behavior for a decade or so..... :)

It's not even using the DE that's more fun, it's using the brush to create a good lather, prepping my face with hot water before the shave, applying a post shave balm and then the after shave lotion. In other words, I enjoy showing my face a good time every morning and it makes me feel better about myself and the impending day :)

And the pleasure of shaving and control i get with a Merkur Progress cannot be matched by any clumsy catridge handle I have, let alone the dispensible ones.
But - no doubt - once one acquires the technique of prep and shaving, system cartridges can also perform very well.

Back to topic: I would also recommend Sensor!
