Gillette Shaver Hack born out of Desperation

What’s wrong with this image?
So here I was 10pm Sunday night, right out of the shower standing in front of the mirror with shaving foam on my face. Even though I was freshly showered, I was slightly panicking. My razor had a rust spot on one of its 3 blades after not using it for a week and I was having a mental debate of whether to use this blade or not. After giving my cheek a few swipes, the fear of getting tetanus made me see the light and I chucked the blade and proceeded to rummaged through my toiletries box for another razor.
What you see above was what I would find and hack together. I noticed visually that the neck connector (between the blade housing and the stem) looks very similar, so I gave it a go and it works! I also thought that if it works on a bikini line, why not my chin? I am strangely quite excited to try it again tonight, because my chin was really smooth after the shave!

    Someone once told me that womens razors were better than mens, as they have to cover a lot more ground.
    He used them to shave his head and said they lasted a lot longer.
