Charlie Sorrel, Wired:
What could possibly justify this price? Well, nothing, but that doesn’t stop Zafirro from trying. The two blades are made from white sapphire and “launch a new era of shaving” (the era of shaving whilst broke, I guess). These blades are sharpened using “high-energy, ionized particles”. Included in the price is ten years worth of cleaning, servicing and sharpening.
That’s $50,000 per blade. At that price, it’d better feel like I’m shaving my face with an angel’s bum-fluff.
