I don't want to think about how many shaves I have left in my den. I've got over 2,000 blades stashed away (I'm not really sure how many exactly).
I know that some folks have well over 10,000+.

I gave away all my current models, all my inventory are vintage, stainless and carbon. Don't have exact numbers but roughly, the ones I have more than a hundred of are Personna 74s, and Super Stainless both the G.B. and U.S.A. models, Gillette Platinum Plus and Super Stainless or "Spoilers" and Schick Plus Platinums. The rest are right at or below that amount. Schick Stainless, Super Stainless, and Krona Chromes. Wilkinson Sword Light Brigades and Super Swords and carbon Schick Deluxe with Krona edge and Gillette Super Blues. As I've mentioned before, I've never paid anything close to what you usually see asked for them. If I had found wet shaving when I was still working and had that income I would have had a brush, razor, soap etc. acquisition disorders. As it is I had to direct that urge to the least expensive disorder I could. Vintage blades.

With the recent sale of Polsilver and Personna 74, the only blades I have

1. Wizamet Iridium Super (550) (7 shaves per blade)
2. KAI (100) (7 shaves per blade)
3. Bolzano (50) (4 shaves per blade)

I also have GEM, Feather Pro etc. as well.
I am using straight razors mostly now, so I would say I am set for next 20-30 years

I still have an exorbitant amount of Wizamet Iridium Supers and I am certain that they will last me my entire lifetime as I get 10+ shaves per blade unless I live for another 100 years. Smile

I just got in 100 Personna Reds. Were I to use em everyday, that would be about two years worth. As it stands, it might be a lifetime if my new R41 that I'm getting in today doesn't give me the love I'm hoping it does... otherwise I'll just go back to using my straights 100% of the time.

Gillette Silver Blues (4) - 190 blades / 760 shaves
Permasharp Supers (4?) - 100 blades / 400 shaves - unconfirmed, will need to test further.
Gillette Nacet (4) - 90 blades / 360 shaves
Polsilver Super Iridium (4) - 90 blades / 360 shaves
Voskhod (2) - 90 blades / 180 shaves

Total: 2,060 shaves / about 5 years 8 months 2 weeks

My blade turnover rate is faster, because for me, blades start losing their edge around shave 5. I avoid stretching a blade out because it causes me to re-learn the bad habit of applying way too much pressure.

My stock:

*197 Personna 74 Tungsten
* 4 Personna Super Platinum Chrome
*434 Wilkinson Light Brigade

At 12 shaves per blade, enough for over 20 years, longer than I"ll live.
