For the man who has everything (i.e. Blake)

Would you pay $100,000 for a razor?
By Mike Wehner, Tecca mike Wehner, Tecca Tue Jun 21, 10:41 am ET


$100,000 can buy many things: a brand new sports car, a boat, or a ridiculously luxurious vacation, just to name a few. But if you already have a new Audi in your driveway, a yacht at the marina, and just got back from a trip around the world, perhaps you'd rather drop your cold hard cash on a limited edition iridium razor. The pricey item is crafted by Zafirro, a company which seems to have just one product in its lineup, and just 99 of the "Zafirro Iridium" razors will be made.

The handle of the razor is made entirely of iridium, an extremely scarce and expensive metal that is so dense it could survive a drop into molten lava. Most iridium that appears on Earth is the result of crashed meteorites. The blades of the beast are made from artificially grown sapphire, making them hypoallergenic, not to mention many orders of magnitude sharper than your average Bic. The company boasts a 10-year blade life, and backs it up with free sharpening for a decade if the razor ever dulls.

The Zafirro Iridium, while promising "generations" of enjoyable use, is clearly made for the millionaire who already has everything. The company says the upgrade from a traditional razor to the $100,000 model is like changing from a CB radio to an iPhone, but unless your morning shave takes place at the mouth of a volcano, we're not sure it's worth it.

Blake doesn't use razors. He just gives the death stare while looking at the mirror and his facial hair is trained to fall off.

i'm actually pretty frugal when it comes to day-to-day things. i use a regular old mach 3 razor for all my shaving needs, i get a $16 haircut every 2 weeks, and buy store brands on most things that i don't prefer name brand for any reason.

I get the worst razor bumps from a mach 3.
More expensive does not always mean better or better quality. Price perceives better quality but that perception is often wrong.

well i've been using a mach 3 for so long with the best results that's it's my steady steed for shaving. i've tried all the 5-blade wizbang & vibrating shavers, etc., and they're not as good with my course facial hair. plus, 5-blade shavers don't do nearly as good a job on the nuts as the mach 3. electric razors don't cut it either. i like a clean and close blade razor shave.

I use the Schick Quattro. Love the damn thing. It even has the part that you can fold back to allow you to work out sideburns and areas around the nose and mouth. Best disposable I have ever used. I hate electrics. The only thing I use an electric razor for is to trim and keep maintained.
