Your great grandfather didn’t pay $5 for a razor blade. And you don’t need to either.
These are ten of the sharpest, smoothest shaving blades in the world. They’re used for wet-shaving with a double-edge safety razor and are made from the finest Japanese steel.
Each blade costs about $0.60.
Not only are these about 1/8th of the price of Fusion blades, you’ve probably never seen them before because almost no US stores sell them.
They would much rather sell you this:
This razor is generally cheap or free because the blades are almost $5.00 each!
Yes it has five blades, and no, that’s not good for anything except advertising. Barbers use a straight razor and give the best shaves in the world. Two or three or four or five blades in a cartridge is just a gimmick designed to make you think that shaving is supposed to cost $5-$10/week.
Blades for the razor above will cost you about $0.60 for a week. the five-blade cartridge costs almost $5. If you use a blade a week, you’ll have an extra $228/year! Your grandfather was a smart guy!
