Hi , i recently bought the Wilkinson Sword Quattro 4 blade razor.
Having run out of blades for my old razor and it looking a bit worn , i thought it was time for a change.
£6.00 for a razor didnt seem to steep compared to some so i went for it and it is easily the worst razor i have ever used and would never reccomend it to anyone.
Im not someone who likes shaving so tend to do it every few days and normally dont have a problem , but to be honest this razor seems to highlight the general problem with razors these days.
1 : to many blades.
The razor has 4 blades set very close together , so close in fact that after a very short stroke over the beard the blades became clogged with hair , and due to the blades being so close together the hair would not come out even under fast running hot water. Also it caused the blades to keep missing areas of hair meaning i had to go over sections of my face several times to get a decent shave , in the end it caused iritation to my skin. In the end i got round it by opening a new toothbrush and cleaning the blades out after every stroke.
I think it took me 45 minutes to shave , normally it takes 10 minutes.
The shave i got in the end was poor and i will be getting rid of this as soon as i go shopping.
