Head blade is awkward. I use a Mach 3 Turbo and that does fine. Lately I don't even shave as often because I don't mind if some grows back during the week. I do shave at least 1-2 times a week though and about every other day during periods where I really want to clean 24/7. Clippers are used first if I let it grow back at all.
As far as Mr Carlin, he's wrong, but I will say that if you have no size on you at all, a lot of white guys just look "sick" when they shave their head. If they look like football players, it actually may make them look "tougher" shaved. I see a lot of bodyguards around here with shaved heads and I doubt people still think of "skinheads" when they see this unless you have swastikas painted down your arms.
