Battle of the Razors: The Verdict
So, which is best? There is no one best method that will suit every man and lifestyle. The safety razor is far and away our top pick overall. It offers the closest most enjoyable shave, versatility and works well with a variety of shaving products. It is also a much more affordable and classic option than using a cartridge razor.
For the daring with time to kill, a straight razor may be a nice option for now and then. For those moments when you want to be pampered, see a barber and get that hot towel and straight razor shave. For those occasions where travel forces you to keep your best at home, keep that cartridge handy. Ultimately, choose the right fit for you and your lifestyle. It is your face after all.
