I'm down to about 30 or so Feathers and a handful of Gillette yellows. Gonna have to place an order soon. Thinking of replenishing my feathers and trying out the Kai blades. Keep hearing good things about them.

Yes Kai blades are quite nice.  They behave like a Feather but last longer, IMO

Yeah.. I really need to stop buying blades. The problem is with the shipping cost out here in Canada, a quantity is often not much more expensive than a tuck or two.

I think i'm around 50 each of Astra & Personna Reds, then around 20 Gillette Platinum.
I would like to order 100 Rapira Lux but with 120 blades (listed above) already, seems silly to buy them just to put in a closet. Less silly after reading this thread Smile

I have about 300 of various brands. I want about 10 times that much. Should last me a good long while alternating between my straights, DEs and SEs.

lol i really need to take some more updated pics these pics are from april 2015 and are from my home stash. i keep a bunch at my office about as many as in the box shown with the various blades. this doesnt even show many of the different blades like the other packs of voskhods, the 2400 personna uk's. or the personna red's, dorco prime, nacet's, kai, zaza, lord's, shark's, treet carbon and new steel, more feathers etc etc etc and a just a whole bunch more.  Biggrin. and i sold off almost 30,000 voskhods!! i have no idea how many total anymore but i would guess more then 20,000 or so various blades still. ill try to take some updated pics when i get a chance but it takes forever to unbox and pull them all out lol. i never buy less then 100 -200 packs. imo for what they charge for a 5 or 10 pack its almost not worth it to bother. ill buy 100 if i really hate them ill give them away or sell them.

and yes i have a problem

That is not a problem, that is pretty much what I dream of.
Awesome stash of blades. I would love to have a stash like that! Enough to know I would never have to worry about DE blades again, lol.
One of the things in the back of my mind is that I will use my straights for decades, then get too old, hand tremors, arthritis, nerve damage, etc(already deal with slight tremors sometimes), and have to switch to only DEs, and find blades hard to find or way too costly.
I know it's probably paranoia, but I'm planning to cease purchases of anything new, and concentrate on blades for a few years.
But...you can stop now, my friend. No way you'd ever run out, lol.
Bravo!
BTW, that Voskhod stash is w i c k e d.

This is impressive! I'm sure many vendors don't have this huge blade stock. Great variety too!

540 Super Iridium/Polsilvers in old stock 10 packs. I discovered the box my Vie-Long beehive came in is a perfect fit for 66 boxes. I tried just about everything else and these are simply old friends of known quality. I hope to buy more soon. Life is to unpredictable as it is and having a few secure constants a comfort.
