Into the Black

During the discussion of three-bladed razors here a couple of years ago, parodies of five-bladed (and more) models were referenced. Now, of course, the five-blader is a reality, as surreal as that seems. I looked them over at our recent foray to the warehouse store, but even in bulk the price of these things seems out of hand at this point... they add another blade or two and it will become cheaper to use electric razors as disposables.

I've tried the Fusion (non-battery version) and found I like it. It give me a better shave than the Mach 3. (The battery Mach 3 one was just horrible so I skipped the battery Fusion). As a bonus, I'm finding the Fusion blades last me two weeks versus maybe a week with the Mach 3 blades.

That was a fairly terrible essay on Fair Trade coffee. I started reading it without noticing what site it was on, assuming it was a normal news article, but about half way through, when the author started ignoring and directly contradicting previous statements, I checked the source and realized this is just an opinion piece masking as journalism.

The authors bias is obvious, and their argument becomes confused and muddied as the essay progresses, which is too bad, because there might be an interesting story here, but given the bias, there's no way I can trust anything this author is writing.

I swear as they've introduced the newer models they've cut back on quality control for the older models. That's the real issue for me. Every package or 2 I'll put in a new blade cartridge and find it's just not working right (blades are at the wrong angle or there must be a burr on one of the blades). With more blades this just becomes a bigger issue since there's a greater chance the assembly won't work well.

But it's really the marketability (blades=megapixels!) and an excuse to raise the price. If someone would just introduce an HQ model, where they had better quality control, I'd go for it.

And to think I still shave Flintstones style, with a 2-bladed razor.

I use the 5 blade Fusion with battery and enjoy it. I feel it's a much smoother shave than with my mach 3

I've had the 3, 4, and 5 blade variations. I find that the good 'ole Mach 3 still gives me the best shave but it is somewhat....aggressive.

Of course, the way my beard grows I'm starting to think I'd be better off lathering up with a hair remover first.

i think the next logical step is to skip metal and go on to fire, you know - with the blowtorch razor... just burn the hairs right off your face

who cares about melting skin off.. thats pussy talk!

or maybe the genetic-manipulator razor... mutate the hairs off.. and grow a tail while you are at it!! (prehensile of course.. you can carry more shit, and just think about how much the ladies would dig that extra thrust in the sack!)

i've resisted the temptation to buy one of those damn 5 blade deals so many times now. even on sale i just can't do it. at this point it's really so i can say "yeah i tried it and it's bullshit" but i can't give those bastards the satisfaction of taking advantage of another gullible sucker.

does anyone remember a skit on saturday night live a while back? this was before even 4 blades were out i think... it was pretty funny for SNL. "the 10th blade doesn't actually cut the whisker, but fakes it out to set it up for the 11th" and stuff like that.

i'm thinking of going the old fashioned straight razor route for coolness factor

Here's the report from Engineering. Someone put it in the bathroom: I want to wipe my ass with it. They don't tell me what to invent—I tell them. And I'm telling them to stick two more blades in there. I don't care how. Make the blades so thin they're invisible. Put some on the handle. I don't care if they have to cram the fifth blade in perpendicular to the other four, just do it!

You're taking the "safety" part of "safety razor" too literally, grandma. Cut the strings and soar. Let's hit it. Let's roll. This is our chance to make razor history. Let's dream big. All you have to do is say that five blades can happen, and it will happen. If you aren't on board, then fuck you.

I just picked up a Mach 3 Turbo (the kind with the battery vibration) because it was cheaper than the Mach 3 regular (it was on sale). I don't see the purpose here...it seems to do little else than tickle you. I think I'll just take the battery out and use it like a regular Mach 3.

Jesus, I only just brought myself to use a four bladed razor. And then I really didn't notice that tangible a difference. I think five's kind of getting rediculous.
