Yup...last one took a while to arrive and it only had one blade (tight basts, Gillette used to give you two with their samples).

Might give it a shot, then. Only as a back up in extreme circumstances, though - I'm with MH in the Gillette fanboy group.

Make that three. Wilkinson Sword razors cut my face to buggery.

Anyone who isnt a Gillette fanboy, is, quite frankly, a beardwearer.

Aye, I'm a Mach 3 turbo man myself. Really noticed the difference between that and the normal Mach 3. I got a free vibro razor, and although I don't by the vibro blades I still use the 'handle'. The vibrating function can come in very handy when travelling alone too!

Oh, and I got one of the 6 bladed gillete razors as a sample, but not having the face the size of a small continent I found it too bulky.

Mach 3 turbo + king of shaves oil and gel = the smoothest shave ever.

Please tell me the 6 blade thing is a joke? I know the Onion (?) did a spoof but thats crazy. Soon you'll just have washboard on the wall you scrape your face against in the shower.

Five blades on the front + one on the back.

me and my brother were talking about this the other day... and patented (pending) the facegrater(tm) - its a full mask moulded to fit the lower half of your face, it has over 10,000 micro blades (ceramic natch) inside. simply fill with foam, slap it on your mug and pull down once, presto, smoother than an ALS model's ladybits.

I think that's probably the only article from there that I've reread multiple times - it's moderately funny on its own (the 'fuck it - we'll do five' tone) but absolutely hilarious now that they actually have razors with that number of blades.

In fact, here it is for those who haven't read it.

So there will be so many blades on a razor they will become a viable weapon in an FPS. Now there's product placement for the next-gen!

This is the combo I use and works the best for me too. I did get the blade that Furbs linked to the last time and didn't think much of it to be honest...

Heh - never seen that Onion story before, very good! Reminds me of a Stevas rant...:o)

I got the last one too, and also struggled to get a decent shave out of it. It seems daft that they expect you to get a close shave out of a razor when they put a wire barrier over the blades. At least this one might work better.

I'm a Mach3 lad too but i prefer Somerset's Shaving Oil over King of Shaves' one. Uing Cariad Shaving Oil at the moment. Bad thing is most of these products have Tea Tree oil which means i get burns on my arms and chest where it drips. :(
Sensitive skin ftl, i've a bright red patch on my arm from where i got some aftershave spray on it.

I'll never go back to shaving foam though, never ever ever!

Might have to get me a vibratey blade, does it have those stupid wireguards on the blades? They just trap stubble and i end up raking my face instead of shaving.

The Gillette vibrating blades you mean? Nah, they're exactly the same as the regular Mach 3 blades except green, have some fancy balm on them and cost 4 more.

As someone above said, if you go for the vibrating one, just use the regular Mach 3 blades. I have to admit, whilst I use the vibrating one, I'm not totally convinced it actually makes any difference at all. But its a gadget thing.

Got the free Wilkinson razor one last time, within two strokes the "too-close-together-blades" had clogged up with hair and it wouldn't then remove anymore from my face.

I have long-used W/S. I tried Mac3 when it came out, but a) I didn't instantly turn into David Beckham (which was a MAJOR disappointment) and b) I cut my face to shreds... so I went back to the W/S. I have to buy a new blade every week, because of the clogging-up thing, which is kinda expensive, but at least I don't leave for work covered in blood.

I recently gave up with the multi-blade fallacy and got a single-blade razor handle that takes original loose razor blades. IMO it works exactly as efficiently as a safety razor, if not better, and is about 1/100th the price. I will still keep the safeties for other areas, ahem, but the face is getting the OG Razor for the rest of time I reckon.
