Probably still a fair few like your father. I know a chap that's still using his Mach 3 and the Wilkinson bowl year after year. Same boar brush for years as well. It's merely a task for himHere, my regulars are MÜHLE R89 and Exec Shaving Braveheart head, then two travel razors used infrequently and two old razors I call scrap metal. I know that today it's all about freedom of choice, change, challenge and even collecting - let's face it there's more choice of decent shaving gear than ever before. And a lot of us can afford to splash out (credit card's your flexible fried).
As far as I recall my father had the same DE razor and brush for years and cream lasted forever, and as a factory worker most of his wages went on paying off the house and feeding the large family (thank goodness for that).
+1 to this. My expensive razors don't shave any better than my cheap razors but I love the design and craftsmanship that's gone in to them.It's not about how much a razor costs, it doesn't matter if one day I shave with a Â£300 razor and the next day a Â£50 razor.........just the same as I don't eat prime steak every day, some days I will eat beef burger if that makes more sense.
