In going through my shave bin - I came across a 4 pack of Fusion power blades and travel sized can of Edge gel. Not being the type to discard perfectly good products, I tracked down the Fusion handle (not in the shave bin) and decided to work them into my shave routine until everything was used up. While I still prefer DE shaving for the closeness and ritual, the Fusion works pretty well in a number of ways. It provides a fast and easy shave. With the five blades brought to bear, you can be done in one pass. If you want a close shave - two passes gets you there. You can't really hurt yourself with this razor so there isn't any uncertainty with respect to direction or pressure. It's generally recommended not to go against the grain with a CART, but you can and I do. It's pretty much foolproof and cleans up really quickly. My only issue is that it doesn't cut as close in my problem areas (upper cheek and below the chin) as a DE. Once I've used up these products, I'll never replenish them but it's been an interesting experience using them again.
