It has come to our attention that ShaveMate, in its efforts to break into a stubble market dominated by Schick and Gillette, has recently introduced the ShaveMate Titan 6, which has six blades. Six.

We set out to find out why.

"It's not just the blades," says Lou Tomassetti who, along with his brother Peter, invented the Titan. "It's really everything you need in one." The Titan, he explains, also comes with shaving cream in the handle and a moisture strip.

"If you go out and try to buy equipment for shaving today," Lou continues, "it's very complicated."

"You might have to buy batteries," Peter adds.


I used disposable Schick double-blades from Costco for a while, and they worked great. Then one day I needed razors and wasn't near a Costco, so I grabbed a pack of cheap Bic single blades. They work just as well.

BTW, I buy disposable razors because for some obscene reason they are cheaper than refill blades.
