Hi all, I just returned from basic training in the USAF. I took my Merkur HD with me only to have it tossed in the garbage during the first shakedown. So after 7 weeks of dragging a Mach 3 across my face 2 times a day and using goo from a can, I am happy to be looking for a new DE. The Merkur did an "OK" job for me. I tried various blade combos only to find the WalMart Personnas to be the best for me. The issue is that my hair is very tough-to the point it destroys shirt collars usually in a matter of months. I've been eyeballing Gillette Fat Boys, but was wondering what all of you would suggest. I've read the razor reviews, but nothing seems to jump out at me. I'm looking for BBS daily and as little irritation as possible. Any input would be truly appreciated!
