Well I've seen it all now, 5 blade battery opperated wet shave.
What does the electric bit do?
costs you more
No idea, other than adds to profits.
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.
this is ridiculous. how mnay blades do you need? i think 2 was perfect. 3 was over kill. and the battery is just a waste of time.
Gillette and Wilkinson Sword are on a war, currently number of blades
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
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.
This was also satirised in The Onion in Feb 2004: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/33930
And now Gillette have only gone'n'bleedin' dun it! - as revealed in the latest Holy Moly newsletter
Makes the thing vibrate.
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!
Make Beckham more money?
I've never got on with multi-blade razors - they always seem to clog up long before they go blunt
women will probly buy this if it vibrates and shaves
