Anyway you slice it, doesn't a six-blade razor feel excessive?
"The razor-technology race shows no signs of slowing. I bet an urgent memo has already gone out in Gillette's marketing department. "Hold some focus groups immediately!" it says. "Find out what number comes after four!" And who knows what lies ahead? Razors with ten blades? Twenty blades? A thousand blades? Razors that go backward in time and shave your ancestors? Exciting times lie ahead, shaving consumers! We should all grow beards."
