It cost $399 https://shop.onebladeshave.com Not $588.

You are referring to the "discount" which throws a bunch of CF stuff in it, which is clearly better than just paying $399 for just the razor. Free stuff is good.

Why does the "free stuff" cost $189?

Is this a real question. Do the research. https://www.onebladeshave.com/sharpologist/

Why does Castle Forbes shaving cream cost $44? I don't know, ask Castle Forbes. http://www.westcoastshaving.com/Castle-F...DQodWsYC_Q

Similarly look up the price of the pre-shave, balm, and the travel brush. Its all the on the net.

So, your choice. Do you want to pay $399 for just the razor? or

go through their special and get $188 of "free stuff" on top of that?

Is that a trick question?  Huh Or can I choose none of the above?

I'll be interested to see how the $399 price works for them. It will be interesting to see if they discount the razor itself - without the additional product. Could be that they have and I haven't seen it.

It looks like OneBlade has successfully wrapped up the blade Monopoly. Connought shaving won't ship the blades outside the UK any longer. Maggards still has them, so get them while you can.

I hate Monopolies.

Yes, It certainly looks like they have exclusive distribution in the US. A few will come on the market here and there, but not enough to really impact the price. OneBlade has reduced the price on subscriptions to roughly $.66 per blade, though they shouldn't be that much.

I posted the following answer to a question about which blades work with the Oneblade on Amazon:

Personna GEM PTFE coated blades work very well for me and many others. They come with a spine, so you use pliers to squeeze the corner of the spine and it will come easily. I like the Gems as they are well priced and last a long time - up to a month. From a shaving perspective I prefer the GEMS as well as I nick myself more with the Feathers. Also, the Feathers have a tremendous amount of glue on the blades which I really don't like.

The Feathers do provide a slightly smoother shave for me. Also, Feather blades are probably the sharpest razor blades on the market. That is great for some men and not as good for others. In my case, I wind up with more nicks from the Feathers because they are so sharp.
I will also say that I know folks who like the Feather blades better. It might be worth trying both to see which you like best. see less
