    The single blade on the back looks like a cool idea.

    We wouldn't need all of these fancy gadgets if the razor companies put up a little display in the shops showing how to shave properly with a cheap razor rather than badly with an expensive razor. :)

    Long overdue imho . Could never keep the side burns level with the 3 blade razors , let alone 4 blade razors . Still , I use a braun leccy for the moment so I'm not too bothered :smashin:

    I wonder if those 2 designers from C4's "better by design" are making any moneys out of this ? they built a prototype years ago .

    Cant see the point in five blades, three does me just fine. Another marketing ploy of more is best, and as said before, if you dont use it right its useless.

    I can make do with the cheapest bic single blade and a bar of soap, shaving gadgetry is such a laugh.

    I'm thinking of buying a good cut-throat razor.

    Yep Blue II "slalom" disposables do me....

    But I wish I had one of those bathroom robot type gadgets as used in those 80s Insignia adverts. Remember..... showergel, aftershave, deodorant, "in one all over smell", "its new Insignia and its all over now.." to the tune of a Stones song I can't recall at this moment.

    Would just have to roll out of bed, stand in the tub and let that machine do its stuff! :thumbsup: ;)

    I've never got on with multi-blade razors - they always seem to clog up long before they go blunt :thumbsdow
