New Kickstarter razor - The SmartRazor

MOST of the American store brand razors are based on the old 2 or 3 blade patents from the early 90s so they had SOME chance at being better then the fusion and mach 3.

The only possible way of getting me to buy, let alone use a cartridge razor again would be if Kate Upton would come over, strip down, and shave my face with it. MAYBE JUST ...

the cartridge wagon is pure profit. sell a super cheap product that doesn't last long, and make 3 dollars in profit per head.

the average consumer is um well, not very bright.
Sorry man but you are talking out of your bum. I can get at least a month out of a cartridge with jeans stropping and using good artisan soap so this don't make sense like. You gotta be bright to get your cash from a cartridge but yer can. Most guys I know manage to get good long use out of a cartridge.

Granted I mostly use either Wilkinson Protector or the old Atra two-blade carts and I'd say I get probably 15 uses out of a cart so yeah, not too bad.

when I was 13 I could get a month out of a sensor 2 blade cartridge. But I was sticking a tooth pick in to push crud out. I was even able to get good shaves using glycerin hand soap with that sensor 2 blade cartridge. It was a good design.
But with the modern 3,4,5, and even 6 blade things, and with my adult facial hair, I am lucky to get 4 passes out of one of these cartridges. and that's shaving every day, and often using a beard trimmer with the guard removed to do a quick buzz cut on my face.
The last week I used a cartridge razor was last year in april or june. I used a shick quatro. 3 days of stubble so I buzz cut my face with the beard trimmer. Then I proceeded to shave with the schick cartridge razor. I needed to use 2 separate cartridge heads to complete a 3 pass shave. I had an interview in town that afternoon, so when I was at a bigger store I found a van der hagen razor and purchased it.

Even with the best soap from Italy or England, I wouldn't even think of trying even the 2 blade cartridges. Its enough to make me want to cry when I think that I could have enjoyed nice happy shaving since I started shaving at 13 if my mother had only let me use my grand fathers double edge razor.

@Bezoar you must have stubble like wire wool mate but if that is your experience then it's your experience. I get good clean shaves out of a Quattro. Oh and you must have had your balls drop early if you was shaving at 13. I did not touch me face until I was 17 or 18. You would probably have cut yourself to buggery wiv a DE at 13 tho.

Be it cartridge , SE , straight, DE they are all razors and we can choose which one suits us best on any particular day, this is a shaving fourm not a razor fourm, no matter what you use you are still shaving so let's be happy for one another if we use what we like to shave with.....but no canned foam!!! :)
