I quit shaving with a blade when I got out of the Army. I have stubble like copper wire(same color and consistency) so blades don’t last long. Coupled with the fact that razors are expensive as hell and shaving is a pain in the ass. I grow a beard now, but when I’m not, I shave with a beard trimmer down to stubble, whenever I feel like it.
Beard trimmers cost me 30 bucks and last a few years, way cheaper and less hassle than shaving with a razor. I’m surprised more men haven’t done this. I do grow a really long beard within a couple of months.
