    I really prefer the old standard twin blade razor with a nice shaving cream but use a Electric Razor to avoid cutting skin blemishes and have a bleed.

    I use both. Usually takes both to get a good shave.

    I'm still perfecting the shaving techniques and have been using both methods when I shave Johnny. The razor does give a smoother finish.

    My SO has both but will only use the electric one in an emergency.. he feels he doesn't get a close enough shave unless he uses his twin bladed razor..

    I've had a beard and mustache. I shaved off the mustache. I'm thinking of shaving off the beard. I only grew it to cover a bump that came out on my chin.
    But the beard is a nuisance so I'm thinking iots coming off soon.

    I have one and I sometimes use it; if so, I'll start out with the electric razor and finishing it off with the other. Mostly, I use what they refer to as a safety razor. I shave dry, without using any shaving lotion. I used to use shaving cream then, when I didn't have any, I tried shaving dry and found that it was easier. It seems that the shaving cream allows the blade to pass over the beard hairs without cutting them.

    I just use a cheap Bic razor. They come in packs of 10 or so.

    I have/use both. But, use the Gillette Mach 3 blade razors for my face, with either shaving cream or soap and the electric shaver to trim the bottom of my mustache and hair growing to much at the top edge of each ear. I have nicked my chin sometimes with the Mach 3, but usually get a nice shave with it. I then use Aqua Velva After Shave and become an "Aqua Velva Man" LOL

    My husband used to use Gillete Mach 3 razors, but I bought him a different razor about 3 years ago , which he can still use with the mach3 blades, but he says the razor feels much nicer in his hand as it's weighted....

    BIC or something similar. I just purchased 10 bags of 20 razors which should last me oh......about the rest of my life since I only shave every 2 or 3 days and each razor lasts about 2 weeks.
    I do not have a beard per se hence the lapse of time between shaves.

    I've shaved strictly electric for a good number of years now. The shave isn't as close as with a blade, but it's far harder to cut yourself with an electric razor. The unpredictable cuts and blobs of dried blood on the face drove me from blades to electrics, plus they've improved them over the years. No shaving creme is required for electrics, and the shave is a faster process...
