CONSIDER THIS - on GILLETTE
King Camp Gillette dreamed of a cockeyed invention that caused investors, metal engineers and experts at MIT to snicker. They all believed that there was no way a razor could be made sharp enough to provide a clean shave and yet be cheap enough that it could be thrown away when it was dull. Gillette laboured four years to produce the first disposable razor and another six years to get it placed on store shelves. Although only 51 blades sold during the first year, 90,844 were purchased in the second year and Gillette's risk-taking innovation was on its way to revolutionizing the shaving industry.
