Where will it all end!
How many blades is enough?
Every time another blade has been added, if have pooh-poohed the idea- then gone out an brought one just to see.
Truth is, they have all been improvements.
The three-bladed razor gave me the first decent blade shave I have ever had and that's when I went away from the electric razor. I had been driven to the electric by the appalling disposable razors of the seventies, only resorting to them when out in the field.
The electric that could be used in the shower was really good, but after being dropped a few times, that was the end of that $279 experiment. Then along came the 4-bladed variety and all was good. The refills cost a packet, but then they lasted a long time too.
The latest 6-bladed (5+1) is the best yet- the single trimming blade gets right under the nose for those unsightly hairs that get missed.
But where does it end?
How many blades will these gadgets go to?
Why am I blogging about razors on a Friday night?
Buggered if I know!
