A couple of months ago, I picked up a new razor for my husband at the Dollar General store. The Magnum M5 came with a blade storing case with a cover and extra blade for about $5. I didn't think I had much to lose, especially with refill blades at 2/$3.50.
I figured that it would be decent. What I didn't figure on was it being wonderful. My husband loves it, and it rivals my Venus Embrace, knocking the competition completely out of the ring when you figure in cost. My husband used the blade for about a month before wanting to change it, at which point, I still thought that it was performing beautifully.
Maybe I'll be really cheap and buy another one and just use the blades he doesn't want anymore. That might qualify me for the Tightwad Gazette.
And at the rate things are breaking down around here, I might need to dust off a few of those and reread them.
