As well as getting a good razor and blades you should also spend a bit of time finding the right shaving soap or cream. No need to use that nasty spray can stuff.|
Edwin Jagger do some really nice products but there are plenty of other brands. They can seem expensive (100ml of Edwin Jagger cream comes in at about £12-15) but they last much, much longer. According to my Amazon order history I bought the tub I'm using now in January...
Amazon. They're about £6.
Last time I bought some noticed you can get a 100 pack of Derby blades for £8! Bargainous. They'd last an age.
Chance it'll last more than 20 years. A good quality DE razor is a lifetime purchase. There's actually a market for antique razors, once they're cleaned up they work good as new.
