Gillette came out with a Fusion razor a few months ago (5 blades to compete with Schick's 4 blade). Now Dewalt is coming out (May15th) with a 36 volt cordless line to compete with Milwaukee's 28 volt.

They ain't cheap either, the Dewalt 36 volt hammerdrill is suppose to cost over $400.00.

I wonder if I will see 100 volts in my lifetime .............Paul

I still have 4 refill cartrages left for my Gillette Mach 3, and when I run out; I'm switching over to the Gillette Fusion.

The individual blades are slightly smaller than the blades on the Mach 3, and because you're spreading the blades over a greater surface area; it gives you a smoother shave with less iritation. Everyone I talked to that has used the Fusion, said that there is a noticable diffrence in comfort between the Fusion and the Mach 3. That's good enough for me to spend the $$.

After hearing your testimonial Deabionni, I might try the Gilette Fusion, or at least the Mach 3. I use generic 2-blade razors and they don't cut it (pun intended ). BTW, do you think we'll eventually have razors with 10 blades?

I use an electric one, it shaves nice and close, I don't get cuts or ingrown hairs any more.

Deals with those pesky botfly larvae too!

I have tried every electric and none electric razor out there, shaving with regular blades hurts. and causes alota irritation for me.
the closest thing i had found to comfort was the mach 3 (I have yet to try the fusion) but mach 3 blades i had to replace after like 3-5 uses before it started hurting again.
I used all diffrent types of shave cream. they all seem to produce the same results.
I tried many many electric razors. I don't remember all the model numbers but bruans always seemed to be the worst. norelco's worked alot better for me. THEN I found the perfect razor, no discomfort, never misses or can't reach a spot, is just perfect. and thats the norelco 7735x I paid 100 bucks for it in a little kit at walmart. you can find the same kits online for around 70. it looks like and came with all this stuff.
the box it comes in

it came with all that stuff. A beard trimer, a shower caddy for the razor dispenser cartriges, a travel case, 4 lotion cartriges.

It is the best razor I have ever tried out of all of them. its also waterproof so u can use it in the shower to save time.Or maby shave under the ocean if u feel like it lol. Also I used this razor for a stright month without having the charger base handy to me and the battery lasted with out any power loss tell the end. that was shaving everyday for 5 10 mintues. also it shaves as close as the mach 3, or if it doesnt I cant tell a diffrence with my hand.
I have two razors left to try, one is from bruan and is around 200 bucks, its got a self cleaning base station but i dont have the model number in my head.
the other is from norelco and is the same razor james bond used in his last movie, I heard it works really good as well. and it also has a lcd digital display to let u know the battery power and when the heads need to be replaced which is pretty cool.

I'm sure all this info is usless to you all, but when I was searching for a good razor non of this info was avalible to me ."it was just a bunch of mixed reviews on all razors i looked up" so i figured I would throw my info on the subject out incase anyone else is still trying to find that perfect razor.

I tried finding links to the original SNL skit on the triple blade razor "Because you'll believe anything", that came out a couple of years before the mach3. Then Mad TV did one on a 9 or 10 blade razor that pulled the hair up, pulled it some more, scaped the skin off, then next blade scraped you clean to the bone and repeated the process again in one swipe.

Here is a commercial on why you might need a close shave :-)
