Just when you thought 4 blades was enough

Gillette unveils 5-bladed razor
New system, available in early 2006, to have lubricating strips on both the front and back sides.
September 14, 2005: 3:35 PM EDT

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Gillette has escalated the razor wars yet again, unveiling a new line of razors on Wednesday with five blades and a lubricating strip on both the front and back.

The razor, known as the Fusion, has blades spaced 30 percent closer than Gillette's current MACH3Turbo system. It also has a single blade on the back of the cartridge for shaving sideburns or trimming under the nose.

The move renews an ongoing blade battle with Schick, the shaving unit of Energerizer (Research), which launched a four-blade razor, the Quattro, last year. The move ate into Gillette sales and sparked a legal battle between the two companies.

Schick is adding a battery-powered Quattro to its lineup this month, while Gillette's Fusion -- in both manual and battery-powered models -- won't hit North American stores until early next year.

"The Schick launch has nothing to do with this, it's like comparing a Ferrari to a Volkswagen as far as we're concerned," Chairman, President and Chief Executive James Kilts, told Reuters.

Razors accounted for nearly half of the company's $2.8 billion net sales in its most recent quarter, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The razor and blade industry has annual sales of $2.4 billion in the U.S. and $10 billion globally, according to Gillette.

The Fusion will also be available in a power version and features a micro-chip that regulates the voltage and blade action. Other high-tech features include a low battery indicator light and a safety switch that shuts the razor down after eight minutes of continuous operation.

Man.. 5 blades?? Thats too turbo for me

The manual version will be available in North America in the first quarter of 2006 and has a retail price of $9.99 with two cartridges.

The power model hits stores at the same time and comes with a one cartridge and a AAA battery for $11.99.

Gillette (Research) is in the process of being acquired by Procter & Gamble (Research), a $57 billion dollar deal announced in January 2005.

I'd love to know how it can be 30% closer.

I shave with a regular (maybe it's fucking turbo) mach3 and the hair is gone.

30% closer to what?

They've discovered a new breed of hairs called "nano-hairs" that ONLY the fifth blade can defeat, and if you don't buy the Mach 5 your nano-hairs will poSSESS YOUR MIND!!!!! OOOOOOO!

I discussed this shit with my nano hairs AND my pronano hairs and they say this is a marketing scheme.

It says the blades are spaced 30%closer together, rather than shaving 30% closer to whatever :wink:
