Agreed. I loved the product, but will never give them another dollar. Not ever.

I switched from disposable plastic shaving stuff to a stainless steel double edge shaver about 8 years ago. Mine is a shiny chrome "Parker" made in India. Here in Germany, I can buy Wilkinson Sword double edge blades in a 10 pack at the supermarket for less than 2 Euro, about $2 USD. Those 10 blades will last me almost a year! I shave 2-3 times a week. Wilkinson Sword sells a plastic handle "classic" double edge shaver but it is kind of cheap looking and light. I like the heavy chrome Parker, available from some internet sources like the big A.

Also, I don't buy cans of shaving foam. I use the same bar of natural plant oil soap (coconut, olive & palm oil) for washing/showering as for shaving.

A small price to pay. What can I say, I'm a SJW.........
