I abhor disposable razors. I usually had the ones with two or three blades. I hate them. I use the new Gillette Fusion with five blades and lubricating strips before and after the blades. So smooth!!

I don't use disposables any more. I'm with Corey and also use the Gillette Fusion. Best shave I've ever had.

I think I read an article that said anything over 3 blades doesn't effect the performance one bit. The problem is finding one that isn't too cheaply made.

I have light facial hair, so a disposable will last me for a month.  I think the current bag has three blades. Used to use a regular razor, but then the blade companies started switching to "shaving systems" and I couldn't find  snap in cartridges for my old razor anymore.  And I am NOT buying a "system" to shave with.
