Schick Quattro Titanium

Item Description

I use this razor now and again, especially if I've been a little too aggressive with the previous day's shave and want something easy and gentle on my face. I know a lot of people use the Mach 3 as their "fall back" razor when they just want a quick shave, but I think the Quattro Titanium is much better.

Pros: Easy to use. Quick shaves. Low irritation. Widely available. Cheaper than the Fusion.

Cons: Hard to get a BBS shave. You won't want to do multiple passes. It's a multi-bladed razor, so your chance of getting irritation and ingrown hairs is higher. The cartridge prices are still pretty high when compared to decent DE blades.

Latest reviews

I got it at Walmart with the electric trimmer. It included a AAA battery and for $5.00 I thought it would be worth it just for the trimmer. The trimmer is good but I hated the razor itself. You would, with 1 stroke, clog that monstrosity up.:cursing: I used it 2 times and just threw away the cartridge, but continue to use the trimmer . I hated the time it took to unclog the razor 7 times a shave. No Thanx!!:closedeye

This is my first review.:001_smile
Up to now this is the best razor I've ever tried. My skin is very easy to cut but this is the only one razor that I can shave with and achieve a TOTALLY NICK-FREE SHAVE (and ZERO irritation).

To be honest I don't use DE razors, they are impossible to find here in Mexico, and I consider cartridge razors are perfect for me particularly.

Price: It's cheaper than a Mach 3. A pack of 4 blades costs $110 Mexican pesos, about $8USD. And one single cartridge gives me 8 shaves (both with the grain and against the grain). I shave 4 times a week, so one cartridge lasts me 2 weeks. So a pack of 4 blades lasts me up to 2 months. And it may last even longer for those who shave only with the grain or less often than me. It's about $55 mexican pesos per month or $14mx per week. It's about $4USD per month, so I consider the price pretty perfect. NOTE: the blades are still sharp when I almost throw away one cartridge, even if I shaved 6 or 7 times both WTG and AGT. Not as cheap as disposables or DEs but very affordable. The bottom line: very well priced.

Quality: It feels more luxurious and efective than a Mach 3. It's also easier to control and its pivot is much superior. The handle is very durable just as the cartridges.

User friendly: This razor has micro-safety-wires to protect your skin from irritation and nicks. For some, these little wires make it harder to achieve an extreme shave, just like they did with me in the beggining. But after a few tries I realized that this razor takes a slightly different shaving technique than a Mach 3, once you get it, it shaves even closer than Mach 3 and leaves me with zero cuts, and zero irritation. If this razor doesn't shave you very close the first time, it's normal, you will have to try it about 5 or 6 times to get a shave even closer than Mach 3.
Besides, the single blade on the back works very well for shaving my sideburns and hard to reach whiskers.

Grip: Perfect. Never have problems with it even if it's wet.

Ease of blade replacement: Nobody will have a problem on loading a modern cartridge razor.

Aggressiveness: As I mentioned above for my skin it is very easy to get cut. This is the only razor that shaves me without cutting my skin. I got very small nicks on my firsts shaves with this, but once you get the control of this razor, it will give you a shave completely free of cuts. The micro-safety wires really work.

Adjustability: N/A

Balance: As a bottom line, I disagree with the reviews other shavers give to this razor. I think every razor uses a different shaving technique, but most people never give enough chances (about 5 or 7) to this razor. I shaves with a Mach 3 for about 7 or 8 years only going with the grain. When my beard got thicker and heavier I couldn't get a close enough shave going with the grain only, but every time I went againg the grain with my Mach 3 I ended with a lot of cuts all around my cheeks and neck. So I decided I had to try another razor. I tried about 10 different razors lasts year, and I discovered this one was the only that shaved me with zero cuts and zero irritation. So it became the best for me.

If you still shave with a Mach 3 and are not 100% satisfied, or want to try another one you should try this Schick.
And if your skin is easy to get cut like mine, you MUST try this razor because it really worked for me. Besides it's very well priced, cartridges lasts very well. I highly recommend it.


Best regards from Mexico to all the B&B community.

Not to sound harsh, but I dragged that thing across my face once some time ago and couldn't stand the feel of it. Didn't shave me as well as I thought a "poly-blade" razor should. Threw it away a couple of weeks ago. I just can't seem to tolerate more that three blades on a razor.
