I just had one sent to me in the mail and it looks cool. It also feels nice in my hand. I think it might be too advanced for me because the first time I picked it up and messed with it I accidentally popped the giant blade holder part right off the thing. And that's the problem with it. It has six blades. Six blades! WTF? It has a set of five blades that you shave yourself with and then an extra on top for touching up. Do I really need a razor with six blades on it? What's next, a disposable team of ninjas monkeys that leap off of a popsicle stick and immediately remove all the hair from my face region? This has to stop...

It goes well with the new Swiss Army knife.

I would suggest using the trimming blade to clean the delicate hairs that can grow out of your jugular vein.

I've used the Gillete Sensor for years.

If it aint broke...


Btw, what's with the price of extra blades? Sheesh

There was some Indian tribe that would simply pack their beards in clay and then rip out all the hairs. It cost much less than a Gillette Fusion.

It's not our fault you invested all of your money in clay, okay? Stop spamming.

I've started buying the 12 packs of disposables. Use em twice and then throw them away. Saves me alot of irritation, and $$$.

I'm a Fusion user. And I don't think I'll ever go back to less than 5 blades at a time. 4 blades are simply unacceptable.

Those are all good suggestions but do I really need six blades?

OK, I don't like the clay idea. That sounds painful. And my wrists aren't hairy. If they were I wouldn't shave them anyway. And blades shouldn't cost as much as the razor itself. That's just wrong.

Indigenous american people (i.e. "Indians" / "Native Americans") are naturally devoid of facial hair. ;)

That's what I do. I like the little girly ones that are meant for shaving legs, they don't cut you so much and they can handle my stubble.

I have one of these.........those razor blades last quite awhile so the extra cost isn't that bad when you realize how long each blade will last.

Well, you can't actually use the one on the back at the same time. So, technically you only have 5 and a single blade. :)

About how long can you go before you have to switch?

I think I can shave my neck and chin at the same time with it but I haven't tried.

If you dry it and you shave every other day, mine last up two to three weeks.

3 blades work fine, just be careful....moving from 30 years with electric was kinda bad at first....

That sounds like something a Donkey fan would try. Breaking news: A man in Denver dies while trying to shave his neck and chin at the same time.

Well asking me probably isn't the best measure.......I don't shave close to everyday and usually have some sort of beard or goatee so I'm not shaving my entire face either.

Or, if you're rally fat and your chin & neck really aren't separate...

You know, like George Lucas. ;)

That's not bad. I shave about three to four times a week so it should last a good month.

I wish I could get that clean shaven without it taking a half hour.

Anybody ever used a Gilette Blue Blade? I grew up with them. I've seen sharper pocket knives.

I just got one of these in the mail recently for my birthday and some shaving gel stuff. Haven't tried it yet as my old model is still going strong, but I can't wait.

The 6th blade is for sliting your wrist in early January

I got one in the mail, too, from Costco. Good shave, but the number of blades is approaching ridiculous proportions.

Of course, being a Costco shopper, I still have about 10 blades left from the last time I purchased the MEGA BLADE REFILL PACK for my old razor, so I guess I'll be contemplating upgrading to the Fusion at some point next year.

I hate when women shave their legs or anything else with my razor....especially when they aren't smart enough to change the blade after because you can immediatly tell, it also dulls the blade much faster.

This has happened more than a few times.....

I just started using one of these since my trusty Braun broke down. They are by far the best razor I have used. Still not as close as a Braun though. I just can't afford another $160 electric.

My first blade lasted almost a full month though.

Gillette Sensor disposables with an aloe strip (3 for like 3 bucks) are a pretty good deal. They last a few weeks and I have pretty thick stubble. With that being said, I usually opt for a Norelco electric.
