Free Schick Quattro Titanium Razor - Now With Extra Blade

schickTitanium.jpgYou know how the Gillette Fusion really has six blades - five on the flat side of the cartridge plus one on the back for trimming? Now the Schick Quattro also has a similar "plus one" trimming blade with the introduction of the Schick Quattro Titanium.

Want one? Yes I do. Want one for free? Um... free? Really?

The Schick Shave Lab Winter Xperiences


Only today and tomorrow left to sign up to win a vacation to "kick it" with X-games star Eddie Wall. Click on over the Schick's MySpace page for all the details, or simply click directly to the Livin' Lodge Xperiment to sign up. I have it from a pretty reputable source that you get a free Schick Titanium when you sign up, but I wasn't able to confirm this. If you're looking for a free razor don't fret. Schick usually has a free offer every other month or so. We'll keep you informed when the next one comes around.

4 X-Games Participants Profiled at the Schick Shave Lab

If you haven't been over the the Schick Shave Labs recently, now's a great time to go. The X-Games are in full swing, and so is the Schick Quattro Titanium Xperiment. While it's probably too late to win a day with some of the stars, you can still see a goofy little video on these guys, including shots of all of them somewhat unwillingly shaving. (Click on "The XPeriment" on the top right.) My favorite moment was when motorcross racer Adam Jones seems to not know what the term "mojo" means. Is this guy for real, or did Schick just out a phony?

Here's the link to the win-a-day-with-X-games-contestants contest, where you can still get yourself a free Schick Quattro Titanium. Special thanks to ShavingStuff reader Ben for sending this in.

Schick Announces the New Octo

We've just gotten ahold of plans for the new Schick Octo, an 8-bladed behemoth slated to be released one year from today. Clearly an attempt to leapfrog the Fusion and draw consumers away from switching, the Octo packs an impressive 8 razors in the cartridge head for the ultimate in close shaving.

In a move catering to the Gen-X/Xtreme crowd, the new Schick Octo will be available in eight colors - the standard ROYGBV six of the rainbow, plus Ultra Violet and Infra-Red. Says spokesman Hans Oberme:

Most razors appeal to a broad range of the spectrum. We're pushing the envelope with the Octo by capturing those who live on the fringe.

The new Schick Octo will hit US retail shelves 4/1/07, and have a suggested price of $12.99. Replacement blades will likely be ridiculously expensive.

Free Schick Quattro Midnight Razor

12010-large.jpgYep. You heard right. A free Schick Quattro Midnight Razor for the small cost of giving up an email address. Nothing in life is really free. But hey - that's why god invented Hotmail.

Here's how it works. Go to www.schickquattro.com/mojo.cfm and fill out your name and address. Then... actually, I don't really want to give it away. It's actually quite funny. Let's put it this way. What follows is a clever merging of Flash and location-aware marketing. Apparently I'm known as "Sweet Cheeks" in my home town. Perhaps you are too.

Gillette vs. Schick - Why Must They Fight?

boxingGloves.jpegA while back we reported on the lawsuit between Gillette and Schick over the number of blades in a razor. Seems Gillette filed a patent for a ''progressive blade geometry" razor system which they claim covers three or more blades, so that when Schick came out with the four-bladed Quattro, Gillette sued them for patent infringement. Hmm.... Then Schick countersued Gillette on false advertising claims based on Gillette's ads, which say that the shave from a Gillette razor is, questionably, "'The Best a Man Can Get." Oh please...

Well, a couple weeks ago the companies quietly decided to forgo a lengthy trial before the case went to a jury.

''Both companies have resolved the vast majority of litigation between them," said Eric Kraus, a Gillette spokesman. ''While Gillette and Schick will remain competitors, we'll compete in the marketplace, not in the courtroom."

It's kind of like that time when Hulk Hogan and the Iron Sheik decided to stop their verbal sparring and step into the ring. (I think I might be dating myself here.) The upshot is that both companies are placing their bets on the fairness of the pure capitalist marketplace. Letting a jury of your piers decide whether three or four or now even five blades is the right number of blades is ridiculous. Especially because some of the jurists probably had beards and don't shave much. Or some of the jurists are women and don't shave their face with a Quattro. Let's let America decide who has the better razor. Game on!

A Parade of Razors

Here's a progression of razor growth throughout the years. On the left we have the Gillette Sensor (1990) with its measily two blades. Who knew back then we'd need more than two? Next we have the Mach3 (1998), shown in unpowered "Turbo" form, followed by it's genre-busting brother the Mach3 Power (2004), each with three blades. Who knew back then we'd need more than three? Next we have the Schick Quattro (2003), four blades of patent-busting leap-frogging fury. Who knew back then we'd need more than four? And lastly on the right we have the new Gillette Fusion and the Fusion Power (2006) - five bold and beautiful blades, with a sixth on the back for good measure.

Update (1/17/2008): Who knew back then we'd need more than six?

Text to the X with Schick


Time for you to win free tickets to the the X Games this summer, courtesy of Schick. And while you're at it, pick up a free Schick Quattro razor while supplies last. How does it work? Click here to register (which of course means you give up your address, phone number, email, and first born). Then, as you're watching the winter X Games on ESPN, you text your magic code when you see the "Text to the X" symbol flash on the screen. Note that's the winter X Games, and not the winter Olympics. And you'll need to be watching live, for all you TiVo owners.

Peronally, I can't wait to see a snowboarder whip out his Quattro Power while doing a 720 and shave his goatee. It's shaving... to the EXTREME!

More Clips on ThatsThePowerOf4.com

screen.pngJust a quick post to let you all know that ThatsThePowerOf4.com has put up some new video clips, continuing their spoof infomercial. Haven't been to ThatsThePowerOf4.com? Well, let me say this... it's interesting. This is Schick's website devoted to the Schick Quattro Power, made to look like a cheesy infomercial, "As Seen on TV"-style. Some of the clips are kind of humorous. Some feature Kato Kaelin. And some verge on showing an attractive woman. Overall they're not as edgy or indy as you'd want from a website. But hey, it's Friday and if you're stuck at the office, click on over to ThatsThePowerOf4.com and view a few clips. At least the production quality is high.

And if I may muse for a moment, why they didn't get schickquattropower.com (like schickquattro.com) is beyond me. Why the domain schickquattropower.com is still available is crazy, by hey, that's why I'm not in marketing.
