Best. Razor. Ever!!

Disposable safety razors were a pretty new idea, when I started shaving, in 1972 or thereabouts. I've been through their evolution, from one to two to three, and now, to four blades. I've tried Gillette and Bic, but have always preferred Schick razors. They pull less on my whiskers and stay sharp longer. I ran out of my latest disposable Schick blades, so I looked for some new ones yesterday. They didn't have any, but they did have the Schick Quattro Titanium, a couple of choices, one with batteries, which I didn't get, and the one pictured below, which I did. It has four blades on the main shaving side, plus a single edging blade, which I doubt I'll ever use, on the other side. It's metal, not plastic; there's a nice heft to it. The razor, with two blades, cost $9. It came with a coupon, worth $5 off a purchase of two packages of blades, so I got those, too. Total price: $25 for a razor and 10 blades, which will likely last me a year or more.

I tried it for the first time this morning. Smoothest shave ever. Not a hint of pull. And it trimmed my whiskers well. Big win!
