Disposable Razor: Schick Quattro Titanium 4 Review

Product: Schick Quattro Titanium 4


My Rating: 7/10

My convenience store suddenly has a Schick Quattro Titanium 4Schick Quattro Titanium 4 on its shelves. It is a wonder to see another brand of disposable razors.

My country Indonesia seems to be doing alright to just have one brand so far. Just last year I saw Bic disposable razor and this year I saw Schick’s. The market of shaving products is monopolized so far by Gillette. Even that, I sometimes have a hard time looking for a new cartridge for my Mach 3.

This is the first disposable cartridge razor that I tried after years of using Gillette. The price was cheaper than Gillette Mach 3. So I bought it.  I wanted to expand my experience on shaving and I needed to try other razors than Gillette’s.

The Experience

The look of it is so classy with black color. I love how easy it is to grip. The package came with 2 extra replaceable cartridges and a razor hanger. Yup, a razor hanger. This is a nice bonus to have. Now I can dry my razor with proper hanging. The blades will not touch another surface but my skin.

The 4 blades have a coat of titanium. It claims to give a better protection to the blades so they can have longer sharp conditions. It will not become dull easily. I can not vouch for this as I just try this razor for a couple of times.

Alright. I am so excited to try this Schick Quattro Titanium 4. It has 4 blades. It seems to give a promise of a close shave. Closer than Mach 3. Isn’t that every modern cartridge razor’s promise? To give a closer shave with more blades?

First time

I prepared my shaving cream in a bit hasty way. Maybe a bit too watery. I continued anyway and applied it to my face. I scrubbed my face a little with my lovely shaving brush. By the way, I have 4 days of grown hair on my face. Already a bit longer than I usually let. I was busy and couldn’t find time to enjoy my shaving routine. This time, I forced myself to shave.

After applying the shaving cream, I prepared myself to a better shave than Gillette’s. I was so wrong. Maybe because of the shaving cream or maybe because of the new blade or maybe I held it in the wrong way.

The blades got stuck on my face. Sure, my hair was Schick Quattroa bit longer than usual but this is unacceptable. I couldn’t finish a part of my face with a single swipe. I had to do short swipes and cleaned the blades every time. The repeated pass with the grain already gave me enough razor burn. I did not do against the grain pass like I usually do. It was a torture.

I wanted to finish it so badly. I changed to Gillette Vector midway. That bad.

Second time

There was a second time. Yes. I was giving this Schick Quattro Titanium 4 a second chance. I was in a hurry last time. It might do the razor injustice.

The horror of the first time experience still lingered in my mind. I had never experienced that kind of misfortune with my Mach 3. No matter how long my hair was.

Now I had 2 days growth on my face. I had to let my face healed from the razor burn first. I was in a bit of a hurry, again. But this time, I had the time to took a hot shower and let my face get real warm.

I did not use shaving cream. I used a slick shower gel. Yes, not ideal but again, I was in a bit of a hurry. It gave a good enough protection layer.

I held the razor with no confidence. I glided it with almost no pressure on my face. Amazingly, it cut really nice. Not a close shave because I gave no pressure. This gave me a much-needed morale boost. I even continued with against the grain pass.

A sign of razor burn was there but it was still alright. I expected that. I stopped after that. I have a rather clean shave. Not smooth but acceptable clean shave.

I finished up by washing the soap off and applied my aftershave.

  1. That is one story with the schick quattro 4. It seems that to get the shaver to work well, you have to shave it regularly. If not, I might just get cuts every now and then. Well, that is just from your experience though. It really takes one to try to see whether it suits them best.

    1. Hi, Steve.

      Actually, I shave quite regularly. This is just the first try using a different razor. Different make gives a different experience. How was yours with a Schick Quattro?

  2. Your description of trying out this razor for the first time is so hilarious. I love the way you write – it makes me feel like we’re just sitting around having a conversation. Your review of this product is thorough and detailed. Honestly, I wish I had this type of review and hands-on, tried-it-myself information for every product I’m ever interested in buying! Nice job on the article – thanks so much for the information.

  3. Shaving can be quite time consuming at times. I’ll find myself just staring at the mirror for like 10 minutes just thinking about what I’m going to trim up next. Everybody has to look professional sometimes even if you want to just let your hair grow out like a wild gorilla that doesn’t mean you can haha. I think this product can help me shave much closer on my beard as opposed to more cheaper products though and some of these shavers don’t last too long before you have to start throwing out pieces.

    Good stuff


    1. Hi Chris.

      I know what you meant. Shaving is a time consuming action. If you rush it, you might get nicks and cuts.

      This product, like any other disposables, has a short life time. You’ll start throwing it away after several uses.

      That’s why I am hooked with a safety razor now.
