Safety razor (Mach III), it has three blades. I shave in the shower seeing as I'm not about to prop my leg up on the sink to shave Morning or night, whichever is more convenient.

Safety razor here too, whenever I get the chance to, & I sit on the side of the tub. I'm too clumsy to stand in the shower & shave.

I also use the Mach III, but my shaving location varies quite frequently. I usually initiate my shave when my face starts to itch, but I usually resume whatever activity i was in the middle of while I shave. This includes watching TV, reading the newspaper, etc. I usually fill a small cup with water to rinse the hairs from the blade between strokes, though sometimes I shave dry. It depends on how long the growth is.

My brother decided to learn to use a straight razor for awhile, and I'd see the leather strop hanging in his bathroom all the time. The poor thing looked like he'd been in a fight for the longest time, with nicks and cuts everywhere! He finally got good at it, but I think he's gone back to a safety razor again since then. Does anyone here really use a straight razor? I thought he was the only goofball. My grandfather was the only other person I know who always used one, but he was born in 1882.

i shave infrequently, with a 4 blade safety razor, before the shower. i lather up, then let it soften up while i brush my teeth. (i brush my teeth much more often than i shave tho... )
dw prefers me with a few days to a week's growth, so i generally keep it around there.
i usually grow a beard in the fall, and try to keep it well trimmed. but one warm day and i sweat under it, and off goes the beard. well, at least for another week or two.

if i ever let anyone shave me with a straight razor, it'll be like in the old westerns. i'll be holding my six shooter under the towel, pointed at the barber's privates
