A Patented Approach to Increasing Razor Life

We've reported on oils from RazorMax and RazorGuard which lengthen the life of a razor by preventing oxidation. Here's another idea for prolonging the life of a razor - the ability to switch the blades. Mark Hesketh realized that the first blade in a multi-blade razor cartridge wears down quicker than the later blades. He was able to see this uneven wear using a microscope to examine the surface of the different blades in single cartridge. The ability the switch around the blades, he figured, would prolong the overall life of the cartridge.

Mark has patented the idea and is looking for a company to license it. You can read the full text of the patent here.

Seems like a great idea, although it doesn't exactly match the current business model which is geared toward getting you to buy more blades. Ahh capitalism. Doesn't always line up for the consumer. We'll be getting an advanced prototype soon and once we have used it a couple times we'll put up a review. Stay tuned...
