Last week a friend gave me a coupon and told me about a cash rebate offer where I could get a battery powered, 5 blade, pivoting head, vibrating razor essentially for free. I went ahead and bought an $11 Gillette Power Fusion razor. Yes, just 1 head, no refills, but it didn't really cost me anything, so I gave it a shot. Holy cow! I felt like the king of the world. Such unsurpassed luxury and extravagance. It was an amazing, effortless, close shave. After that pampering experience, I feel like I should be on lifestyles of the rich and famous or at least own property in the Hamptons.
My question is, how will they top the extreme state of the art razors of today? Why stop at 5 blades? Doesn't Schick or Gillette have the vision to make a razor with 6 blades that simultaneously slide across a man's face? If they really wanted to provide the ultimate shaving experience then they should do much more. I demand laser beams as part of the perfect shave, (not to mention a razor with a sexy computerized woman's voice). I want a NASA logo on my razor and I want custom craftsmanship with some jewels embedded in the handle, not something manufactured on an assembly line by a machine for the masses. Don't they know who they are dealing with?
So my review of the razor is that it gives a great shave, but be careful, because it also does a number on your attitude and you don't want to get too big headed.
