I too saw this ad this morning. Yes, it very well may cause fear among new wet-shavers by schlepping an inferior product. But then again, it may cause another enterprising company to offer some competition and start advertising restored vintage razors, or manufacturing a quality alternative.
I can see both sides of this coin. I hope it sparks ingenuity and entrepreneurship (is that a word?) for a decent alternative. I would love to see some of the more popular manufacturers of wet-shaving products advertise and become more mainstream.
