The Multi-Blade Arms Race.

Scary news:

(AP) Violating existing treaty, Gillette, manufacturer of the popular Mach3Turbo, announced today underground testing has begun on a new line of five blade behemoths.

Experts say this latest escalation is a response to Schick’s four bladed Quattro, itself a response to Gillette’s three blade models.

Ok, when the three blade thing originally came out, I was, of course, frightened. Three blades? Insanity. It was like I woke up and nothing made any sense anymore. But, somehow, I tried the 3 blade deal. My world? Rocked.

Thing is, they ain’t cheap. I’m already spending, like, 1/4 of my income on those damn cartridges. (And yeah, like an all day sucker I sprung for the vibrating handle upgrade.) But now you’re talking five blades? Five? Sigh. I know I’m gonna try it and I know I’m gonna love it. But the cost?

Truly the day is fast approaching when good men can no longer afford to shave. Like Victorian England. And no, I couldn’t always go back to those disposable one blade skin resurfacers, thank you very much. I can’t do it. I won’t. I’m not an animal.
