and bought myself a decent razor. Got your attention, didn't I? :lol I went with a Schick Quattro. Damn nice razor, however I'm confused over something. My goal was to get a razor with a pivot head, and I looked at the Gillette Mach 3. However, the Quattro was the same price and had 4 blades so I got that instead. On the Quattro, the blades have this very thin wire that looks like it's wrapped around the blades. What's that for? Is that to prevent you from shoving the razor down hard against your skin and getting a hunk caught in the blades? So it like, acts as a guide to keep from big sections of skin to get caught? Or what? Any Mach 3 owners out there? Fusion? Etc? Do your blades have the wire things? It just had me curious... I'm talking about the thin lines that go up and down on the blades. There's about 8 of them.
