I keep hearing his ads on the local radio and it sounds pretty intriguing. My damn Gillette Fusion blades are like $19 for a 4 pack but I can stretch each cartridge out for a month so it ends up being about $5 a month per blade. This guys site offers you delivery of 4 cartridegs a month for $6 or 3 cartridges of the Fusion knock-off for $9 a month. Anybody signed up for this yet? His ads are pretty funny, I'll give him that.

1 fusion blade last me about 2-3 months. I use it until me skin gets very irritated or I cut myself shaving. I got 8 cartridges on amazon.com for $18 when on sale. 8 cartridges will last me about 2 years.

That's pretty much my situation. I don't really care about a fresh blade until I have no choice.

I'm in the same boat SCP. I heard the ads on the radio a few months back and then I saw the new ad on TV and thought i was pretty funny, so I checked out the site. I'm seriously considering it. My only thing is, his Fusion clone doesn't have the single blade on the back for precision edging. I can work around that because I went back from using a Fusion all the time to a Mach 3 (recommended by Men's Health Grooming Guide from expert barbers) for regular shaving (they seem to last longer) and the Fusion blade for edging.

But, you can't beat that price if the razors are equivalent in quality. When I shave everyday, my Gilettes would last maybe 2 weeks to a month and then would start tearing my skin up.

I saw a thread about this somewhere else a while back. Someone posted a link where you can buy straight from the source for 1/2 the price you'd get from dollar shave club. Just buy in bulk. Drop $100 on hundreds of blades that'll last you years.

Why not just try it? It's like $6/mo with S&H. If it sucks, you cancel after a month and you lose $6.

just buy a freaking safety razor... old-school blades cost nothing. the new ones really don't shave any better.
