Why are razor blades so expensive?


$15 for a pack of 5 replacement cartridges or $24 for 8.

Mach 3 or Fusion?

I use Fusion... expensive bastards... but they give me the best shave without cutting me up.

Buy an electric one?

They are expensive at first, but you save a lot of money over time.

I just buy these for generally around $10 for 8

Kinda want to try something like the Fusion, but the blades are ridiculous.

I've used the walgreens brand blades. They are half the price but just as sharp.

Because you are paying for 3 blades, when 1 or 2 would have been just fine.

You can bet a 5-blade cartridge is in R&D now.

they already sell these. i dont think they shave any better than 3-blade razors. the hair gets stuck in there and cant get it out. makes it impossible to use more than 5 or 6 times
