Introducing the Hesketh 4x4 Razor
A while back inventor Mark Hesketh wrote in about an idea he had for prolonging the life of a razor. He had noticed that with a multi-blade cartridge, the first blades became dull and worn out much more quickly than the last blades. What if you could exchange the blades? Kind of like rotating your tires. Eureka! A light bulb literally appeared above his head. And thus the idea for a light bulb symbolizing an idea was born.
Actually, the Hesketh 4x4 was born. Mark, knowing a little bit about intellectual property, went out and patented the idea. And that's where it stands today. So listen up all you Gillettes and Schicks of the world. If you're tired of fitting more blades into a razor head, maybe the next step in razor innovation is to think like a Transformer.
