Here is a razor that cost me 99 cents, including shipping: The Sik Bay It's made of a post-space age synthetic with a partial coating of UV reflective material. That is, it's plastic with part of it painted with chrome-colored paint. With a blade, it weighs 9 grams. And it really is called the Sik Bay. But at less than a dollar shipped, it would be a lot to expect the words "Sik" and "Bay" to be in the same script. Modern 3 piece design. Check out the blade exposure: And if that doesn't frighten you, the blade gap is equally impressive: How does it shave? About like you would expect from a 9 gram razor with a blade protruding like the fins on a 1959 Chevrolet. It's like grasping a razor blade with a pair of pliers and pulling it across your face. The result was remarkably close, but it was a slow and frightening experience that left me feeling as though I had indeed grasped a razor blade with a pair of pliers and pulled it across my face. No collar on my shirt today, boys. This is science. We do these things not because they are easy, but because they are hard. Sorry about the crap photos. I was still trembling a little from the experience.
