Yess, I remember using Bics some years ago.Forgot all about them. I remember the Bics being OK. Maybe I’ll
Try them.again if can locate the ones not for sensitive skin.

Some of my ancestors (native Americans) didn't have much if any facial hair. I don't have much other than lite/thin whiskers on my chin and upper lip. Just about any twin blade disposable type will last me 2-3 weeks and plenty sharp for my few whiskers.
Now my old daddy in law (long gone) was 3/4 German and had a face full of very tough/black whiskers. Any razor brand/type lasted maybe 5-6 days.

I have NEVER gotten a good close shave with any disposable....single blade or multi blade

My whiskers are like wire....tough, curly

Only good shave is with shaving soap, brush and the ole double edge razor

Wash face with soap/water and then rinse (hot water)
Get up a good lather...cover face, wait 15 seconds the apply another coating
Couple strokes with the double edge, flip to other side...couple strokes then open/rinse in hot running water to clear whiskers and have a go at it again

I just wish Barbers did shaves.....haven't find one in years
Hot towel, warm lather and a straight razor....oh yeah!
I was a barber in the Navy. I cut hair and gave shaves almost every night. I used to shave with the straight razor even after I got out. As I got older the straight razor seemed to get duller, I still cut my BIL's hair but no longer shave around their ears. I use the Bic single edge razors in the shower with my 50 year old shaving brush and a bar of soap. Hot water makes a big difference. Also I found that a few laps in the pool after a workout really softens your beard before you hit the shower.

Well, Dutch, I went ahead and bought a package of Bic (sensitive) and used one 2 days ago. I was pretty satisfied, and it was a smooth shave. I prefer these now over the Equate dual blades I mentioned earlier. [emoticon]

I'm glad you liked it, Mr. Ed! At about a quarter each, as soon as one starts to feel a little rough to me, I don't hesitate to grab a fresh one...
