About a week ago I got a Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer Razor in the mail, sent by a nice marketing company who thinks that stuff should totally be marketed to lesbians.
I totally agree with this sentiment, so I figured I'd check it out and give you the dirt on this razor.
The first thing I thought when I saw this razor was: neat!
Well one end has a 4-bladed, titanium-tipped razor with an edging blade on the opposite side. The blades are apparently coated in titanium, which keeps it sharp or gives you superpowers or something. The other end of this thing has an adjustable, battery-powered trimmer with a removable comb.
It claims to be shower-proof and, after at least a week in my shower, it seems to be doing fine.
First, a note on the 4-blade thing. I've been doing just fine with 3, and I thought 4 would just be silly and excessive. I have to say, I'm changing my tune. Four blades is nice. Five is just silly and excessive.
Now, you may be thinking that a razor like this was created for men. Well, that's probably true. After all, what are women going to do with a beard trimmer? I can think of a few things, at least.
- For the ladies with hair even shorter hair than I, it would work just fine as a hair trimmer.
- For the ladies who don't like waxing, you can use this to trim your more private hair. I gave this a shot, and I give it two thumbs up.
- For the drag kings, to use as intended!
Finally, you might be worried about cutting yourself on the razor while using the trimmer, or vice versa. I can assure you that if this was easily done, I would have done it. I accidentally pushed the trimmer button a couple of times while shaving and wondered why my armpit was vibrating, but I ended up with no damage either to pit or fingers.
Looks like you can get the trimmer for between $10 and $15 with replacement blades somewhere around $12 for a 4 pack and $17 for an 8 pack.
If the titanium really ends up doing as advertised and keeping the blades sharper longer, I'd say that this is a pretty good deal, and if you need a trimmer for one reason or another it's a fun gadget.
