About.com is having a Readers Poll on mens shaving and grooming stuff.
Just FYI, thought some of you may like to vote for the classic shaving stuff.
The Merkur HD is all alone, up against all the cartridge systems.

Vote HERE (http://menshair.about.com/library/bl-voting.htm)

The Merkur is in second place to the Fusion and it's marketing machine.

AOS leads in all it's categories.

I don't think this matters at all to anyone, the choices are pretty arbitrary and probably marketing in itself.

Voted anyway, nice to see a DE is actually an option. Is this a trend of more mainstream recognition?

I voted on a few of those. The rest it is too bad there wasn't a "none of the above" choice.

Yes, the Fusion marketing machine has overwhelmed the competition with a whopping 57 out of 117 votes.

Certainly there are enough people here to stuff the ballot box for the Merkur to put it way over the top.

Yes! Let's overpower the Gillette marketing machine and whilst doing so draw some attention to DE razors :thumbup:

How hilarious would it be if the Merkur beat out the latest, greatest Gillette gizmo?:lol:

If only they would notice that there exists a group of men who actually care about a shaving product that hasn't been foisted upon them.

I mean, what kind of numbnuts would really care about his Fusion?

Most folks shave with cartridge razors, and a lot of those that do, use a Fusion. People other than members of B&B that are taking this poll probably see the inclusion of the Merkur HD as a funny joke.
