Gillette Unveils Five-Blade Razor

Gillette Unveils Five-Blade Razor
Some had expected Gillette to bring out a four-bladed razor, perhaps a self-lubricating one. Instead, it jumped to five blades, or six including the trimmer, and will sell Fusion-branded shaving gels and after shave balm.

“There was never a plan to go to four,” he said. said Peter Hoffman, president of Gillette’s blades and razors business, who said Fusion was in the development pipeline for several years.

I still remember the good old days when people wondered whether two blades were better than one. Maybe there’s some kind of Moor’s [sic] Law for pogonotomy technology.
