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'.
