Provided a razor is not dull they all work fine for me. The key is to lather up first.
Anyhow... now that fall is almost here it will be time to grow back my leg insulation.
You realize that you can get double-edged razor blades *way* cheaper than a disposable razor... if cost is your concern. A decent safety razor can be had for less than $30 and will last 30 years.

What's my ROI if I don't have 30 years in me?

Too narrow a scope. Limited to 50.1% of the population.
