Schick not only discontinued the Tracer / Tracer FX / FX Diamond (and I think it's the Wilkinson FX Performer in Europe), but they discontinued the blades, too. The razors are mostly going for somewhat over $20 (not too bad), but the blades are more expensive than Fusion blades.

Paul, this is too bad, because I think it was one of the best cartridge razors ever made.

It goes in my Cartridge Hall of Fame, too, next to the Wilkinson Bonded razor and the Gillette Guard. Someone ought to make a nice handle that uses Guard cartridges; ideally, one that gives you the option of locking the cartridge in one position.

The Schick Xtreme3 uses a similar flexible cartridge to the Tracer, but I'm pretty sure you can't swap cartridges between the two razors. In my ideal world, it would have a single blade.
