I happened to be looking for some Personna's (my go to blade), when I spotted this on the bay.  After looking at the pic, I figured that if about half of the blades from all of the cartons remained and were usable I'd come out ahead.  Went ahead with the b.i.n. of $49 and took a chance.  Well, the box showed up today and I was pleasantly surprised.  There were 14 cartons of 100 blades (some of which were strewn about).  Many of the blades were bent in half as well as bent in other places and had to be discarded.  To make counting easier I decided to count the ones I threw away which amounted to 285.  That leaves me with around 1100 blades. This makes up for a couple crappy buys I've had recently.  I figured it was all in fun just to see what I would get.  The first pic is from the listing.  The second two I took.

Never saw it. Must not have been up too long.

Was shipping free too?

That's about five cents a blade huh? Nice!

Can't imagine how they got bent and chewed up though.

As long as the good ones are sealed and dry you're golden.

If you only use one blade a week you're in for two decades of smooth shaves.

Congrats!

Congrats!  I saw that right after it popped up and almost clicked Buy but decided I really have wwaaaayyy too many blades for my lifetime already and will focus on good deals on rare or vintage blades from now on.  But I still admire the great deal you got!

I wouldn't have spent $49. 00. 

But you took a chance. 

And won!

If that had been Astra or the Israeli Personnas, I would been tempted. Nice price-per-blade even after the throwaways!

I almost made a stupid comment, my apologies.
