I've got six of them. Why go all the way to the UK for injector blades.

drugstore.com sells them cheap right here in the good old USA.

I did the same Johnny

Got mine from the UK because Connaught Shaving offers better prices than sellers in the US (including shipping to Illinois) and their blades are Made In The USA Personna Blades.

The Drugstore.com blades are made in China

I have been using the Chinese Schicks and they are awesome...

On the other hand, I adore Personna DE's (Med Preps and Reds) so maybe worth an overseas shipment.. But $15 shipping?

Well, if one must have made in the USA blades, Personna, how about $4.50 for a 20 blade cartridge.

Item #71990 HERE

I still prefer the Chinese made Schick blades. They are sharper and smoother to me.

They are the same blade Connaught sells. Connaught gets £4.00=$6.319 USD or you can get them from EMS for $4.50

I've not ordered from EMS, but I do know that many people didnt like the higher shipping charge from Ted Pella unless you could ship to a business address.

Yeah, I did the same for my GEM SE PTFE coated blades...I find it funny that I can get US made blades cheaper, shipping included, by ordering them from the UK Dodgy.
