    being part italian i got blessed/cursed with steel like facial hair. i have a five oclock shadow after i shave.

    so my moms got me the new schick qautro after using a mach 3 for many satisfied years, in fact i cant even use anything else cause it hurts.

    so i thought id try the new schick and thought it would work better due to the extra blade.


    it doesnt shave as close, causes more nicks and the cartridges only last about half as long.

    i think its due to the spacing of the blades on the cartridge.

    old8...consumer reports like a motherfucker.

    Me and a girl I hang out with entirely too much had a conversation about this.

    We tried to think of what they would say when they finally got to the 12 blade razor.. and we decided on "what are you a bitch man using your 11 blade razor? get the fuck out of here"..

    and then it would be named the Shick Dozen or the Whatever Dozen.

    yeah. I say we hang out too much because we actually talked about this for a good 10 minutes.

    lucky you....

    im finna pick up a old straight razor you sharpen on a leather strap.

    bics fuck my face up cause they go dull halfway though.

    seriously though, the mach 3 has game on the qautro cause of the cartridge design. 3 sharp blades with more space between them in my opinion work better than four crammed into a cartiridge that usually has two.

    Clean, smooth, & efficient.

    I saw a skit on Mad TV about this and it was pretty funny.

    With 17 blades the hair never grows back because it also removes several layers of skin!

  6. The meetings at the Gillette Product Development Dept. nowadays must be fascinating...

    Dept. Head: "Okay people, this is important. They got 4 blades now, so what do we do, what ideas you got?"

    *everyone stares at each other for a few minutes

    Designer 1: "Um... we go for 5 blades?"

    Designer 2: "5 blades and TWO handles!!"

    Being German and Finish I get some gnarly
    facial hair... almost Viking-steeze but I'm not
    Dutch... the Mach 3 is the only way to go for
    me. That Schick thing is fucking geek as hell,
    it's all plastic and Fisher Price "My First Mult-
    Razor" looking.

    Fuck that thing. Poopdick razors get shit on from
    the center of the internet.

    I too am cursed with facial hair that has its own facial hair.

    The only drawback to the Mach 3 is that it's hard to do precision work. ie trimming around a goatee or sideburns. The way it flexes makes the close trimming hard.

    But it works excellent on my balls!
