September 15, 2005 5 Blade Razor? Come on 5 blades on a razor? Mike has the scoop. I have the toughest beard of anyone I know, I mean I would literally have to shave twice a day if I wanted to even be in the ballpark of a smooth face but even I can’t stand more than 2 blades really. I tried the 4 blade Schick and it practically ripped my face off. They must be super dull because 5 sharp blades would be suicidal.
