Watch out! Next year it will be one blade with two sides and it will be made from brass and they’ll call it the Gillette New!

I knew it.
Eventually they had to run out of metal for their blades.
Next step - Conch shells.
To be called Conchfusion blades.
The very best quality will take two blades per shave.
I am eagerly looking forward to this major step in really, really, wet shaving.

I saw this yesterday on a Google News feed and it got me to wondering what happened to their other new intro the Treo. I've yet to see one in a store. Huh However, I see now they list it on their website for an astonishing low price of $7.99 for five!! The Treo merely being the Gillette Guard razor, but with a handle that holds shave goop. Maybe they're slowly coming back to their roots.

But of course, it will be different that than anything that has ever existed. Perfect blade angle, cutting edge blade coatings and on and on.

From SNL 1975


[FADE IN on a caveman on his knees by a river ]
Announcer (V/O): In the dawn of civilization, long before the Bronze Age, man first began his search for the close shave.

[ The caveman takes a club and hits himself in the face. DISSOLVE to the announcer speaking to the camera against a black background ]
Announcer: Since then, man has been ardently striding to design the perfect shaving instrument.

[ Shots of various razors are shown ]
Announcer (V/O): From the straight razor, to the safety razor, to the injector system, amd finally the highly acclaimed twinblade cartridge.

[ The announcer picks up a twinblade and shows it to the camera ]
Announcer: Almost perfect, yet not quite the superlative groom. Introducing the Triple-Trac.

[ DISSOLVE to a close-up of the three-bladed Triple-Trac razor ]
Announcer (V/O): Not just two blades in one system, but three stainless, platinum teflex-coated blades melded together to form one incredible shaving cartridge, easily fitted into your old twinblade holder. Triple-Trac’s triple-threat cartridge, with more close shaves than ever before. Here’s how it works.

[ DISSOLVE to a cartoon showing a how the Triple-Trac shaves a whisker ]
Announcer (V/O): The first blade grabs at the whisker, tugging it away from your face to protect it from the second blade.

[ The cartoon shows how the Triple-Trac yanks painfully at the whisker ]
Announcer (V/O): Blade number two catches and digs into the stubble before it has the chance to snap back and injure you, pulling it farther out so that it is now ready for shearing.

[ The cartoon shows an even more painful whisker-yanking ]
Announcer (V/O): Triple-Trac’s third blade, a finely-honed bonded platinum instrument, cuts cleanly through the whisker at its base, leaving your face as smoothas a billiard ball.

[ Finally, the cartoon shows the Triple-Trac completely shaving the whisker ] [ DISSOLVE back to the announcer against the black background, holding up a Triple-Trac ]

Announcer: The Triple-Trac. Because you’ll believe anything.

I never get the superiority members have towards cartridges and Gillette in general.

With proper wet shaving prep I can certainly get as close a shave with a Fusion/Mach 3 as with my Wolfman, RAW or Karve, Blackbird and on. Expensive yes, but look at the price of a Wolfman or RAW -10.

I can’t wait to try the new Gillette SkinGuard next month.

Or from the gillette 3 blade disposable.
