The world leader in cartridge safety razors, since 1901.
When it comes to experts, Gillette is the world leader in men 's razors. Their latest incarnation, the Gillette ProGlide is second to none in terms of close shaving with minimal irritation. The 5-bladed razor was subject to years of research and millions of dollars in research and innovation, until it was released.
