Cutting edge technology

Yesterday’s Guardian ran an underwhelmed piece about the new Gillette Fusion razor, which ups the shaving arms race by having not four, not five, but six blades (five on the front and a “precision blade” on the back for sideys and nasal hair, apparently). I have to disagree with the article, because despite my cynicism it really does shave better than the M3 Power.

Mind you, I’m not sure about having a blade for nasal hair. If it’s long enough that you can attack it with a razor without lopping off your nostrils, you really should have done something about it already.

Eight quid for four cartridges, though. Sheesh.
