Safety/DE razor blades from a variety of companies

If you are looking for Merkur Model 180 blades, then you’re in luck.  These blades are pretty easy to find.  The Merkur 180 takes the standard safety razor/DE blades.  Most likely you can take a stroll down to your local drug store or Wal-Mart and find them for sale.

The only brand I’ve found at the local drugstores and Wal-Mart is Wilkinson.  Some people will argue that Wilkinson is not good quality, but when you are paying $1.73 for a pack of five that’s a hard price to beat for the convenience.  I can easily get 3-5 shaves out of these blades.  I could probably get more shaves out of them, but I haven’t really cared to try.

If you want to get an even better deal you can shop online.  I’ve bought a pack of 100-count Astra blade safety razor blades for $11.99 on Amazon.  If you just buy them by themselves, the cost of shipping is going to eat into your savings, so I recommend that you buy them with other online purchases if possible.

There are a variety of brands to choose from.  I haven’t tried them all, but out of all the ones I have tried I have been able to get multiple shaves out of them.  When it comes to choosing a particular brand I recommend just trying out different blades and see which ones you like best.  Buy one brand to begin with.  Then when you run out of blades try a different plan.  Keep doing this until you find a brand you like.
