How long do you plan to live? Conservatively speaking, you have enough blades for 92 years of shaving daily.

I never recall seeing "logical" or "frugal" mentioned on TSN.   I do like optimists.

Everyone on TSN has an excess of some shaving product.  Blades are cheaper than brushes or razors.

I’ve less than 40 blades on hand, between feather pro’s and pro-supers. At 10 shaves per blade... that’s at least a year before a restock.

I'm trying to build a stash because I believe once we are gone, there will be less and less guys interested in this hobby. Most guys don't shave anymore if they don't have to; just keep it trimmed for a permanent 5 o' clock shadow. And you never know what torture device  will be invented by Gillette or it's competitors in the future. I just want enough soap and blades stashed back so I can shave into old age if everything gets too difficult to find.
I shave strictly with a straight, now, but i have several vintage DEs for the day when I get so old that my hands are no longer steady enough to use a straight. I'll then move back to my vintage DEs and keep on truckin'.

I've sold some blades and now only have 186 Personna 74 Tungstens and 326 Wilkinson Light Brigades, still enough to last me until I'm 87 years old.

About 1000 blades plus, I toss a blade after 3 shaves.
It's better to buy 100 blades than 20 or 30.
I am 75 years old, it's a race between me and the blades. [Image: 0aab535fd219c1ab7cbfd1f891e13436.jpg][Image: fa408302a45bdc55d6644351cf5316c0.jpg]

Ive probably got too many.  Ive got:
100 Dorco Prime
100 Dorco ST-300
100 Feathers
20 Ying Jilis
10 Derbys
1000 Clouds
I usually get a week out of a blade and if you do the math, thats 25 years worth of blades.
