How often do you change your safety razors? Do the blades vary in holding an edge?

I change my blade when it starts to pull or gets uncomfortable. For me its about a week to week and a half but I only use a DE on my neck. Tough hairs that grow sideways :(

I usually change after 3 shaves.

But it's definitely dependent on the blades. Some i can go a week before being bothered by the shave. Recent batch i just got i barely get 2 nice shaves out of.

Depends on the blade. AstraSP, Sharks and Shark Chrome get 3-4 shaves. 7 O'Clock blacks get 5-6. Getting excess moisture off the blade before putting the razor away can help a smidge.

Quote myself :)

It just occurred to me that perhaps i'm shortening their life by keeping my razor in the shower. (It hangs on the wall in a dedicated holder. Doesn't get hit by the water but it's obviously pretty humid/wet in there most of the time.)

Should test the same blades but bring the razor out of the bathroom when not in use see if they get better life.
