    Gillette Mach 3 vs. Schick Qautro.

    Discussion started by old*824 - Jan 30, 2004

    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.

    I WAS WRONG.

    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.

    Mach3
    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!

    :lol:

    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!
