Just received an email from ATT announcing their closing. Sad day to see one of the first luxury razor makers shutting down. Seems to be very common in the last few months, artisans are closing up shop left and right.

I think many of these businesses have been the passion projects of individuals and as those individuals either choose to retire or redeploy their passions to other more rewarding areas then the businesses might close. The high end razor landscape is much different than it was ten years ago. There are certainly more options.

Truth of matter is the real US economy, outside government jobs and those regulated/reliant on government, has been in free fall for at least the last 4 years and honestly mostly been zombies living off zero interest financing since the 2008 crash. Money having a price is ending the fraud, exposing reality. About to get really rough

There will be more closings. Too many vendors trying to cash in on what they think is a novelty. Who ever can make his own products at a reasonable price will survive.

With you on pain but price is only one of determinants and then, only on low end. Thus far, higher upmarket one goes, less vulnerable to demand elasticity. What happens in a society characterized by monopoly, monopsony and fascist economy - haves have it all and 90% have nothing. 

US is becoming third world in every way except having a common culture to maintain societal ties. Believe that might be unique in world history. Should be interesting to see if society turns on each other as money runs out given it the only thing ever binding US

You seem to have a lot to say and going off topic.
