600 Crystal DE=1800 shaves
200 Feather DE=800    "
100 odds & ends=200  "
240 Feather Pro SE= 1680  Shaves
110 Gillette 3 carts =1320      "
-------------------------------------------
Grand total approx.5,800 shaves////// Being I shave every day that's enough to last me till the year August 27,2031.

Taking into account I'm now coming up on 69 yrs. old I have enough to be good till AGE 85.Guess I will still have to order at least 15 more years of blades."So few blades & so much time"  [:}

I think someone will be passing on some blades to go with my collection of vintage razors when I'm gone  Blush

I shave and toss the blade with each shave.

I shave an average of 4 times per week or 208 times per year.

Currently I have enough blades for 3,940 shaves.

That's 18.94 years of blades.

At around 65 blades per year, I figure I've got approximately 7 1/2 years worth. That will take me into retirement (in six years, three months) with my present stash. Ask me in a few months, the estimate will likely change - blades, not retirement.

Hmmmmm, let's do this.  150 blades.  I do either 2 or 3 shaves per blade (hey, their cheap, so why not have an awesome shave) so say 2.5 shaves per blade.  That's 375 shaves.  I shave about 6 times a week, so that's probably 62 weeks.  

And...I'm just getting started.  Am already planning my next purchase.

Pics or it didn't happen.

You have 600 sleeves of 100 blades? The bigger question, why?

Yeah, I'd say so too. Do you retail or wholesale blades? Or are they exclusively for your use?

I didn't foresee a wholesaler/retailer answering this.

I have about 8 years of DE blades plus a year of Feather Pro blades and a year of SEA Blades. That should give me enough time to learn to hone my straight razor.
