Yes Sir, every time.
I am probably doing something wrong, because my Personna 74 give me 10 shaves only. 3x a little bit harsh, 5x best blades under sun and 2x so so. Enjoy your blades in good health.

Bob, you’ve inspired me to do a razor blade inventory. In deep storage there are roughly 1,345 blades - “roughly” because I have open boxes of Med Preps and Lab Blues, and was not inclined to count individual blades.

~175 Med Prep
~ 90 Lab Blue
740 Israeli Personna
150 Crystal
120 GSB
20 Perma Sharp
15 Polsilver
10 Kai
10 Feather
5 Astra (green box)
5 Gillette 7:00 Yellow
5 Wilkinson Sword
____________________
1,345 total blades

Additionally, I generally keep 3-4 “working tucks” of various blades easily available for bi-weekly blade changes. Presently, there are 21 such blades in my razor drawer. Grand total of DE blades as of this date is 1,366. At approximately 3 shaves per blade I can get ~ 4,098 shaves. At approximately 325 or so shaves per year, that’s about 12.6 years worth of DE shaves.

(I also counted 28+ Chicks and 14 Gem PTFE.)

I have a total of 935 blades, all assorted Russian.  I only use blades once, so that's slightly less than a three year supply.

Actually, I like the Lab Blues.  I could never tell the difference between the Lab Blues and the more expensive Med Preps.
