Gillette's newest razor delivers an electric charge to your beard.
It seems that everyone is stealing the "M3" name from BMW. First Duracell and now Gillette
Are we running commercials in threads now?
After Hours has a long history of showing new products whether they are razor blades or whatever. Some people are interested in new things ya know.
..and besides, there's usually some form of commentary or opinion that goes along with it. That initial post seemed as if you were employed by Gillette. There's been a history of that type of post behavior here as well.
Someone go buy this and tell me how it works. Personally I saw no advantage over the mach 3 with the mach 3 turbo.
It won't be available until May.
"Even if it is only for a light-up razor!"
I wish I could find a link to the Onion article that complained how razor technology has been advancing dramatically while comb technology has not.
I found the Mach3 Turbo to be a much smoother shave then the original Mach3. I even prefer it over the new Quattro razor.
I like new things, and yes i'm going to be picking one of these up come May.
Does it really make the hairs stand on end (which would be a definite benefit) or does the pulsing simply make the blades act like an electric knife, where there are cutting motions?
I wonder how much of a "tingle" you get...
Also, why would the blades be more expensive, they look exactly the same as the old mach3(turbo) blades
The blades are super-duper di-electric ampere voltage conducers. Duh...
I tried the Quatro and didn't think it worked nearly as well as the Mach3 Turbo.. (IMHO)
Electrified razor...wet face...shaving in the shower?
I don't think so!
Paul: Hmm... good point. As a person who shaves in the shower, would this product kill me?
The odds of a single double a type battery killing you are.. uh, pretty low.
near the end of the article, it says that the razor is shower-friendly.
Got a Quatro as a present and give it TWO THUMBS DOWN!
As a completely satisfied Mach 3 user, here's my take:
~ It's way too big, just really unwieldly.
~ I suspect those 7 little guide/support wires interfere with proper, efficient cutting. Unless one were to keep the motion of the razor completely perpendicular to the hairs (an impossibility), those hairs are going to be corralled/bunched into those wires. Also, those wires are going to keep the blades from touching the skin as closely as they otherwise would.
~ The blades got less sharp after only ONE USE! It actually cut me on the third shave.
By contrast, I can use a mach 3 for maybe a month and it has never cut me.
ps, if anyone is interested, we had a pretty good razor thread here awhile back.
pss, JOHN THOMAS, don't be dissin' ol Forest Gump there, we like our razor threads!
years ago i had a blade razor, i think it was made by Remington, that had a vibrating head. (start vibrating head jokes now!) it took a Gillette refill blade. the vibrating head had the effect of ultra rapid mini strokes (another joke opportunity!) that gave a very smooth close shave. it was powered by a single AA battery. when it finally died, i tried to find another one 'cause it gave a great shave, but they had discontinued it.
I'll try it.... why not.... I use a braun synchro now... electric, self cleaning, self charging...
