My name is Ron Christensen, I am a mechanical engineer who does not like to shave. Six years ago, I decided to evaluate why I was only getting 5 comfortable shaves per blade. The new razor blades are extremely sharp, but they do not stay that way for very long. After 5 shaves they became dull and irritated my face. So I had to get a new one and start the process all over again. This was an expensive way to shave while trying to get a close and comfortable shave and this is the reason I decided to do these trials.
What I found out.
What I found out is that the blades need to be protected from the time they are purchased, during the shaving process, and while they are being stored between shaves.
Revolt™ Lubricating Liquid coats the blades to lubricate them and seals them from contact with salt, dirt, water and air. By submerging the blades in our patented Revolt™ Lubricating Liquid, oxygen, moisture, and heat are no longer able to contact the blades. This prevents rust and corrosion which attack the cutting edge of the blade and prematurely dulling the blades.
Our original trial was to evaluate the improvement in shaving comfort by lubricating the blade. Two Gillette® Mach III blades were tested by shaving every other day from the first shave through 200 shaves, each blade provided a comfortable shave.
Our second trial utilized two Schick® Quatro blades. These blades each were used for 200 consecutive shaves. Each blade provided a comfortable shave for all the shaves.
The increased blade life was another positive benefit from the addition of the lubricant to protect the blade. These four blades will all be tested until they fail. The 200 shaves per blade is 40 times my normal blade life. The Revolt Shaving Products make the "Best" better
How much can you save?
At a cost of $3.00 per blade for a Gillette Mach III or a Schick Quatro, the annual savings is 2 versus 73 blades or 71 blades x $3.00 = $213.00. The two blades (Gillette or Schick) each lasted for over one year of shaving. To calculate your personal savings, subtract $6.00 from what you currently spend per year on blades.
