Hello, if anyone is qualified to write a review on razors it is certainly me. I am a man who has been shaving since I am 9 years old. By the time I was in Junior High School I had to carry my razor with me at school and shave between classes or else I would be mistaken for a teacher. It was a few years later I started carrying a straight razor with me but that was for a different type of protection.
Most women dig men with lots of facial hair, they know us poilou are virile and masculine but sometimes I need to look nice and I have to regularly shave my back. I would get waxed but I like my pelt, but if I go to the beach I get sick of people saying "Look there that man is wearing his sweater to the beach". I am so hairy that they have tried to have me declared a new species of primates "Homo Hairyassus". Hell, I was even an extra in the last Planet of the Apes movie and I didn't even have to get my make-up done I just went straight to wardrobe every morning. I got more hair sprouting out of my ears and nose than most people have on their heads
SO you get the picture, I need to shave a lot and intensely and I can't be messing around with any less than the best razor. Until recently I have been having money problems and had to economize but now I am in line to get so much money that I buy whatever I want without looking at prices. See I was sitting at home reading my life insurance policy and noticed that it pays out for my spouse too. I was also talking to a guy at the bar whose wife died and he gets $700 per month survivor benefits from social security (I am Canadian living in the USA). So what did I do? I started writing to all the women I could find on death row. I had my lawyer (sick Rick) review their cases and find the one most likely to actually be executed. So now I am sitting around waiting for the state to kill her. It is a great deal, I can't see the woman except like once a month, she can't call me, and I don't have to deal with her much at all, but we got married and all I have to do is write a few sappy poems about redemption and hope and stuff. When they go an snuff her I can claim to be a widower and everyone will have pity on me. It is a greta situation. In case you wonder she brutally murdered an old man who hired her for some stuff. It was a pretty famous case.
So anyways I just go to the store and buy whatever I want now. So I go to the store and see these M3 razors. I thought, wow look, a razor with an MP3 player onboard so I bought it. I saw it came with batteries and stuff so I thought that all I would need to do is hook up my USB cable and load up some songs.I never got it to work. Now I don't buy tehse any more because someone else came out with a razor with 4 blades, so how can I feel uppity shaving with a mere 3 blades while someone else may be shaving with 4 blades? Still this is not your grandfathers Bic Twin or plain old Shick, this is a "system" that should mean something, a "shaving system"
The razor is pretty cool. It has a curved handle so it is very comfortable. I have to shave in the shower often to get rid off all that matted body hair. The handle has these grippy things on the handle kinda like the handles on my Heritage Softail classic. I can reach around my shoulders to shave the back of my spine and not drop it. This makes it very efficient, so much in fact that I have the drain of the tub looking like Donald Trumps wig fell off in it, in just mere minutes.
I have found it is good to use on my choad as well as my nape of my neck but I do not like how it feels on my adam's apple. Having an adam's apple has been a thorn in my side my whole life, but being reminded of it kills me. It is fast as a rocket when I shave my arms when I get new tattoos and it does well on me head when I shave my head. But I play hell trying to shave that little bumpy indentation right on the back of my head that people always miss shaving well.
Also the razor looks nice, when I travel I want to impress the people going through my luggage and when they inspect my stuff they have to like my razor.
I guess the razor blades are kind of expensive if you are not enterprising like myself and can hear the gravy train coming around the bend. You can't get generic cartridges for these yet so you are stuck spending a lot of money on the blades. I have also found that sometimes I need a loose blade to cut up certain things and the cartriges are very hard to dismantle, for most people this would mean that they are good quality but for me it is inconvenient when I need to cut something and I can't get the blade apart and then I put it in my mouth to try to break the plastic and I end up biting all the blades, not good.
So all in all it is the best blade on the market until they come out with a battery power M7 with the capabilities to download all media formats including Itunes.
Summary: Good Razor but it is expensive system.
