The Best Manual Razor for Most People

I whole heartedly agree with this recommendation from The Sweethome. I have been using the same Gillette Mach3 Power Razor for nearly 10 years. I bought it at a Walmart in San Antonio, TX and have been using it ever since.

After 200 hours of research and testing, we found that the best razor is the Mach3 Sensitive Power. It shaves just as well as the latest razors but for a fraction of the price. It was also the overall favorite of the 10 men in our testing panel and recommended by half of the 30 professional barbers we asked.

This razor has given me the closest shave of anything I have used.1 Painful razor burn has always limited my use of manual razors, with disposables being the worst. This led me to electrics for many years until I discovered the Mach3 Power razor. The electrics simply didn’t provide a satisfying shave. The Mach3 Power is the best of all words. I get a blade close shave (even closer really) as a manual, but with the comfort of an electric.

If you are unsatisfied with a your current razor, give one of these a try.
