The center piece of the Art of Shaving Fusion Power Shave Set is the snazzy chrome version of a Gillette Fusion Power Razor, which I love, but the high price for a this razor is a bit ridicules.
Compare a regular Gillette Fusion Proglide Men’s Power Razor price to that of The Fusion Chrome Collection Power Razor, and I am left trying very hard to justify the price.
Compare the price of The Art of Shaving Fusion Power Shave Set to other Chrome Shaving Sets, and one is still left thinking the price is still a bit north of what it should be.
While I love the Gillette Fusion Power Razor, I cannot recommend the Chrome version… which is ultimately still only a disposable razor. I do love the The Art of Shaving items: Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, After-Shave Balm and the Badger Brush, which the starter kit cost is considerably less without the Fusion Chrome Power Razor.
Overall, I am giving The Art of Shaving Fusion Power Shave Set 3 stars out of 5. I love the set, but not enough to pay between $157 (Amazon) and $175 (Bloomingdale’s).
