This seems like a really easy to answer question but I have not seen it posted here. I have a Merkur 34 razor I just bought from West Coast Shaving (best price I found). How does one keep track of which side of the blade you are using? I think I should get a week out of each side or five shaves, then flip the razor and use the other side for another week. From all appearances it is symmetrical, though, so how does one keep from getting confused?

Man that seems like a stupid question but ???

I don't keep track because I use both edges during a single shave.

Make one pass with one side. Turn the razor to the clean blade and make a second pass.

Rinse and repeat.

That would work.

Or just shave one half your face and neck with one side, flip and do the other half .

At the end of the week, toss the blade.

Or just shave with the blade as long as it's doing a good job, otherwise toss.

That makes more sense

use both sides during a single shave - amazing how I started with the wrong concept and could not get past that. That is also more consistent with the blade lasting about a week, which I read everywhere. So thanks...
