I've been using a Gillette Atra razor for over 20 years. It's a twin blade style razor. It works well for me. I've tried all the 3, 4, etc. blade razors and they all suck. More than two blades is diminishing returns. Furthermore, the Wal-Mart generic replacement blades last longer and cut smoother than the genuine Gillette Atra blades and cost about 75% less!
I like mug soap and brush, but Barbasol does fine for me, too.
I have an old Braun electric, but it does beat up my face more, even with new blade and screen.
My father had the double edge safety razors back when I was a kid. Never tried one, though.
However, you can get a new one at Lehman's http://tinyurl.com/32dzj8
, along with straight razors, soap, brushes, etc. Might have to try one.
