Re: New Gillette Razor - guess how many blades?

I think part of it was that the Mach 3 is still giving the Fusion a run for its money. But I don't see this new one as becoming more popular than the Fusion or Mach 3. I think the idea is to sell to people using neither of them. I don't think there's a women's version. There's a Venus 5 as well as t...

Re: New Gillette Razor - guess how many blades?

Each blade has its own guard, and I think that spaces the blades farthar apart than on the Trac II.

Think of the guards as border collies for your stubble.

Re: Is this for real - Gillette prototype gas-powered razor?

I've been writing to the seller, who provided this entertaining last message: "I don't believe I said it was real, I said i thought it was a proto type! Thanks for your time and carry on!" He doesn't think it's a joke, despite my sending him the picture I posted here, and he won't tell me how he thi...

Some kind of fitting in a small tank or cartridge? I tried to find a patent, with no luck.

Is this for real - Gillette prototype gas-powered razor?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/273727874291 If it is for real, I think somebody took a standard Gillette Super Speed and modified it. It doesn't seem to be something Gillette was working on. I suppose the idea was to heat the blade to be better at cutting hairs, but it looks to me like a joke - a hookah c...

Re: Schick Proline P-30 (Artist Club size) blades

I've seen P-20 packs, too, but couldn't find B-30's.

And who knows what "P" and "B" mean... "P" can't mean "petite" and "B" can't mean "big," though that could be a reverse mnemonic to remember which code is for which size.

New Gillette Razor - guess how many blades?

My understanding is that the Skinguard cartridge fits the Fusion and Gillette 5 handles, as well as its own handle. It has two blades, with a special guard under each of them. The two guards are different from each other, too. Apparently, Gillette realized that they could get new customers by dealin...

Re: Schick Proline P-30 (Artist Club size) blades

So that's what the "30" means in P-30! I'll be happy if my Proline B-20 blades (regular injector size) get 20 shaves.

What does the extra width (or whatever you call that dimension) do for the shave?

Blades: Voskhod DE, Feather DE, Personna "Lab Blue" DE, Schick Plus Platinum - DE and Injector

Voskhod blades are $.15, less in larger quantities. (I have a LOT of them.) The Personna DE blades are $.20 each. Feather "Hi-Stainless" blades are $.25 each. The Schick Plus Platinums (injector or DE) are $1.40 each. You can get single Personna or Voskhod blades, but the Schicks are in packs. The i...

Re: eBay Sales Tax

But couldn't that make total VAT payments on an item eventually total more than the original value of the item? It's similar in the USA to selling a car. When you buy a new car, part of the cost in most states is sales tax. Then, if you sell the car privately, the buyer pays sales tax again. And if ...
