Anybody know we're to get KAI De blades in bulk for less than 60 bucks per hundred? I even tried contacting Kia global in Japan, but for some reason my message will not go through. All the shaving supply venders have to be getting them directly from Japan.

i'm sorry but you'll have to make a search, preferably in japanese. use google translate. rakuten have millions of products so it is impossible for me to know the department, but i would guess beauty/styling/personal care/grooming.

i just have my iphone available at the moment, otherwise i would gladly help you find them.

If you have Amazon Prime, you can pay another quarter and get them in two days.

Although I do have Amazon Prime, if I purchase through Amazon, Smallflower still fulfills the order, but Amazon takes a cut.  As a small business owner myself, when I can, I like to see that the small business that performs the service actually gets as much of the profit from the transaction as possible.  And it's not only a quarter, but a whole $0.29.   Cheers

The consensus seems to be that the Feather and the KAI are the two sharpest DE blades on the planet, and if one is sharper than the other (a matter of some dispute), then the Feather is the sharper.  But the consensus also seems to be that the KAI is smoother, and those who have used multiple units of both blades appear to agree that the KAI stays acceptably sharp for more shaves than the Feather does.
