I see them on eBay for decent prices, and the website tryablade.com has them for $.65 each.

Thanks gents....I'm reaching out today to the ebay sellers. rumour on the www is that there's a lot of 'junk' rubies floating around.

If you find a legitimate seller, let us know, of course. This one seemed likely:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/282465745144

They have 99.9% positive feedback, which is high, even for eBay. What I don't get is how they can sell them that cheap and ship them to the USA from Sweden.

I also found their own website - http://razorbladesclub.com/


This is not a recommendation to buy from this vendor. It's an educated guess on my part, and someone here may have some more information about them.

In January of this year I ordered a sample pack of 10 different DE razor blades from razorbladesclub.com, all ranging from 5 to 10 blades per sample. I particularly liked being able to pick and choose what blades I wanted, rather than have a predetermined set foisted upon me. It was a positive experience and I'll be ordering 100 Feather and 30 Wilkinson Sword blades in the very near future.

Note that I do *not* have any affiliation with razorbladesclub.com other than being a satisfied customer.

Edit: I forgot to mention that if you have Blade Acquisition Disorder then you should avoid this site. Just sayin'.

Thanks, Bill, it's good to have my guess confirmed. I'm now tempted to buy some blades from them. Maybe they get cheap shipping by keeping a bunch of stuff stocked somewhere in the USA.

I've been leery of Chinese blades, but some of them are perfectly fine. The Schick injector blades, for one. The Pacific/Filo blades that came with their Dollar Tree/Big Lots razor. I haven't tried the Ming Shi blades that came with the Futur clone.
