You all remember this pretty awesome video..
Seeing as how I am a sucker for marketing I decided to give it a try. I selected their top end blades and handle because the name of it made me feel like a sir. "The Executive"
Sadly there was a bit of a delay in shipping, but as you can tell by watching the video, the f'n bear can't catch for ****. I blame him. They did communicate with me about the delay, so there is that.
To my great surprise the razor did not come hand delivered by Dave Hickey on a unicycle, nor was it swaddled in Unicorn foreskin soaked in 30 year old scotch. However it was nicely packaged in a manila padded envelope.
Down to the good stuff.
The handle compares well a Gillette Mach (whatever), quite substantial and felt good to hold. Strong and executively. Already I could envision myself suddenly understanding the GOP's platform, squirreling away billions in offshore accounts and laughing at the plight of Aindreas.
Now to the good part. My blades. My sparkly shiny bastions of manhood severing cutlery.
After I eneey-meeny-miney-mo'd my way to determine which of the three blades to use, I firmly grasped my handle, hoisted it skyward and proclaimed the middle blade the implement of my facial stubbles demise. Flipping it over to compare to the Gillete blade that I currently have, they look pretty much identical, except the Dollar Shave blade has 1 more blade, and seems to be more ribbed for my pleasure. Thank you Dollar Shave. you really do care.
As far as the shave goes, the blades seemed significantly sharper than the brand new Gillette blade I used yesterday (in hopes for an accurate comparison, a test group was given a stick and told to shave with it and let me know how it felt). I have a manly face that is 95% bearded awesomeness, and 5% stubbly neckbeardofshame. This blade removed the shame better than the Mach somethingorother I've been using forever, and left my face with a wonderfully masculine feeling. I had to fight the urge to quit my job in order to better pursue my dream of catching the white whale. Thankfully I was able to win that struggle and after sexually satisfying my wife, my neighbors wife, my neighbors cat, my neighbors babysitter, Aindreas, and your mom, I am here at work basking in the glow of my f'n amazing face.
In conclusion, it's a helluva lot cheaper than storebought blades, and for me, gave me a much closer shave.
