You didn't include "Both." (Personally, I hate shaving, but my employer requires it...)

I might as well beef about it now that the topic is up...

You know what really bugs me? .... Razor blade companies! They aren't the only ones that do it, but they just keep on "improving" their products. That's all fine and dandy, but I'm pretty convinced that most of the improvements are marketing plays to sell more razors at higher costs. They come up with a new name, new price and some gimmick. The new razor works great. Then again, so did the old one... until the new one came out! Then suddenly (actually slowly), replacement blades for the old one starts using steel from a generic router bit that was recycled out of a south asian sweat shop! Next thing I know, I'm pulling whiskers, not cutting them off! Jeesh!

Actually all razor blades are made from recycled metal. The stainless is made from metal turnings from machine shops, old wheel covers, car bumpers, used surgical tools, anodes and cathodes from plating tanks and a small portion of Moly flue dust. As a rule the last 8-10 feet of ribbon from the stamping machine gets tossed into the mix. All of these items are mixed in 6' cube fiberglass bags which are dropped into the furnace 10 at a time. It's just like baking a cake only dirtier!
PS: Razor blades that are magnetic can rust if you dont dry them but keep an edge longer than non-magnetic stainless.
