Just posted my intro over on the newbie forum.
Now that I want to switch to a non-disposable razor, the one I have in mind is (pardon if my descriptions are not perfectly accurate) is the longest handle black Gillette double edge. I guess because it's the one my dad had and I remember hacking my face up with it when I was 15. Also, with my hands I know I'll prefer the longest handle I can find, so here's my question.
On a light to average beard, which I believe mine is, does the 1-9 adjustment really make that much difference?
I ask because I see the razor I'm looking for over on the Bay, but the blue Gillette for ladies has a nice long handle, too, but for MUCH cheaper and in at least as good of shape as the mens black long handles.
With my beard, could I do just as well with the non-adjustable lady Gillette? Any advice welcome! thanks
