Self-Portrait 3

(no subject)

When I got out of the shower this morning I realized that the only razor I have any fresh blades for is my Schick Quattro, so I muttered "Quaaaiid, start the reactor" as I ran it under the hot tap, fired it up and proceed to de-hairify my face.

I quickly realized =why= it was the only razor I had fresh blades for. It sucks. It shaves well enough, I guess, but it doesn't shave as well as my Mach 3 and it's almost impossible to clean the hairs out of. I think these two problems have the same root, namely that the blades are too close together. I don't think the heads are well-designed, and the handle isn't terribly comfortable. I get the feeling the thing was rushed out to win the "who can pack the most blades into a razor" race that Schick decided to start after Gillette came out with the Mach 3. A race that they went on to lose, because are they the best a man can get? Fuck no. Gillette is the best a man can get.
