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.
