GJ eventually even the best batteries die. Not to mention, you can't use a machIII turbo to fashion a fishing spear. Although, you could use the batteries to make fire, but that's providing that you don't waste them shaving...

Hey SK, thought you might appreciate this.  Here's my razor that I use and my travel case for it.  Nice little extra in the woods;

Mine is pretty close to that, except no awesome sheath.  I still haven't tried with too much sucess.  I really like the idea of it though.  I need to practice more.

It's all in the sharpening. I happened on to a 2000-4000 dual sided oil stone and the edge on it now is unbelievable. I can literally drop a hair on it from 6 inches up and it will slice it in half.  The biggest mistake I made with it, in the beginning was over stropping it.  Some guys in a different forum taught me that you should only need 4 strokes in either direction and it should only be stropped just before shaving.
