Wow that's a LONG time of wetshaving. I am sure you've used literally a ton of products.

That would be 56 years, +/-.

The average shave puck is about 4 oz., but a minority of shave pucks are about 6 oz.  Assume, generously, that half of the pucks are 6 oz., making the overall average to be 5 oz.

An American ton is 2,000 pounds avoirdupois; each pound is 16 oz., so a ton equals 32,000 oz.  

So a ton of 5 oz. (on average) shave pucks would equal 6,400 pucks, or about 114 shave pucks per year.  

There are 365.25 days in a year, so that would work out to opening two new pucks per week for five and a half decades.

It is possible, I guess.
