Show us your stash!

I know some folks newer to DE shaving are amazed that someone could have thousands of blades on hand. While going through my stash to pick out this weeks blades, I decided to take a picture of all I have:

[Image: 8242211712_ee7404b0c8_c.jpg]

That's 925 Voskhods
290 Personna Supers
265 Ladas Super Stainless
105 Astras Super Platinum (one box is actually full of Voskhod tucks)
90 Rapira Swedish Supersteel
80 Blade Man (vintage)
and
about 300+ miscellaneous blades

Speechless... I have about 1000 but seeing them like this makes you think how many shaves/years/centuries a man can live Biggrin

You really love Russian steel, DA?

Here is a partial shot of my stash, I have another 500 Astra SP, 500 Supermax Plats and 500 Polsilver SI and 200 Personna Labs packed in a Rubber-Maid storage box with some silica packs in the back of the closet. I also didn't fool with including loose packs or blades in photo.

   

So, roughly estimated the stash is,

Astra SP: 1300
Polsilver SI: 700
SuperMax Platinum: 700
Voskhod: 100
Rapira Swedes: 300
Ladas: 100
Personna Labs: 300
Schick Injector: 27
Personna Injectors: 100
GEM "Pella" SE: 96

and about 300 random loose blades/half used packs in a few large Ziplock freezer bags with silica packs.

It certainly turned out that way! I do like some Indian steel, namely the SuperMax Platinum, but given all the blades I already have, I wont' be stocking up on those....for the moment. I like Racers (Egyptian steel) quite a bit, but I only get 2 shaves out of those.

Actually if that happens my boys will get them. My oldest is 15 and nearing his first shave. If I have my way, he'll never use a multi-bladed cartridge!

Well this is what over 2, 750 Super Iridiums look like...

   

Sorry, I'm too lazy to take them all out of the boxes,
but believe me they are all full.
In fact you can squeeze an extra box into each carton...
Which of course I've done!

I have enough for the rest of my life! No pics. It warms the cockles of my heart to see that you gents are ready for the shavepocalypse.

I have to chuckle... I have a hard enough time to convince my buddy he'll save $ by buying SE blades in bulk, and here are all those blades. For some reason he has to buy his blades 10 at a time from the pharmacy and pay through the nose. Maybe he thinks he'll die and leave some unused.

You can get more than 3 shaves out of a Super Iridium blade, so, 2750 would easily last for 75 years (shave every day and ~10 shaves per blade).

I shave almost every day. The most I get from a blade is a week, but often I'll use 2 a week. I'm still a couple of years shy of 40 and plan on shaving for at least 40 more, but I also have 2 sons (although both are a long way off shaving) so I'm actually stockpiling for three! In fact doing the math... I think I need more blades! Biggrin

Those blades should last at least two life times.
