About 6 years ago i was shopping for some mach3 blades and stumbled upon a made in england, TTO gillette at a local pharmacy here in Montreal. It has no code, it only has the gilette diamond logo, "made in England", a black plastic hand, and the twist mechanism is right under the head before the handle starts.
So i thought to myself: "Cool! i'd love to start shaving the way my Grandpa shaved!" (I remember kissing grandpa and noticing how smooth his face always was)
Anyway, these were the only double edged blades available to go with the TTO at this local pharmacy at the time. To think that these blades were the reason why i didnt start DE shaving all the way back then...
So I got home, all excited. I even remember thinking how cool it was to handle one of these blades and how neat the packaging was. As soon as the blade touched my skin HOLY WOW did i ever regret even thinking about DE shaving. This blade literally yanked each hair out. (At this point i was thinking something along the lines of "Men simply put up with the pain back then, Thank God for the Mach3!") I admit that i was using Gillette canned Goo (TM) but nevertheless, no one deserves that kind of pain. I recently saw them on sale at a WalMart for $8 a pack of 10 blades.
Most horrid baldes on the market, hands down. These things should be illegal.
