    With essentially daily use, each blade lasts me a full year.  They're the standard Mach III or whatever it is, but the blades I was using before lasted about as long, too.  The first few days are the sharpest, but a year later I'm still getting close shaves without any special effort.  When they're done, they tell me.

    Ditto about everyone wanting to know that.

    •  you have the most unique beard on the planet (3+ / 0-)

      then.  I don't think I have a particularly tough beard and there's no way in hell I can get more than about 7 or 8 shaves out of a blade.

      blades don't get dull, they get nicks.  and once that happens you get cuts.

      so if your blades aren't getting nicks they just aren't being asked to do much.
