Invention of the first 5 blades safety razor

Invention of the first 5 blades safety razor

If you were thinking that Gillette would be the first to invent a five bladed razor, then let me tell you: They are 76 years too late, it was created in 1933! Indeed, the 5 blades are used in a new type of safety razor designed by a French inventor. It was advertised that a stroke of the razor across the face would remove every trace of hair in its path, based on the hysteresis effect. Also, speeding up the shaving, this razor did not need to be be taken apart after shaving, a simple rinsed under the faucet and screwed, head down in its dedicated case. The blades require no sharpening, according to the manufacturer, and will give good service indefinitely.

Gillette started manufacturing in 2006 the Gillette Fusion, which uses five blades and a lubricating strip on both the front and back.

Invention: The Rolling Razor in video

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Another great invention for people who love to get a close shave: The Rolling Razor. The Rolling Razor is just under 2.5 inches long and fits comfortably on your index finger, while traditional stick razors are approximately 6 inches long. Beyond Rolling Razor’s unique, proprietary and patented design & technology, it is simply a more natural way to shave. The short distance between the handle and the blades provides you with greater control and accuracy. The curved cartridges don’t scrape against your skin like flat cartridges do; they roll easily and comfortably with your contours for an effective and comfortable shaving experience, eliminating unnecessary irritation. Plus, it’s a really cool looking razor!
