So many people complain about the simple task of removimng a blade after each use. It only takes an ever so brief moment, and it also prevents the next generation to use your razor from complaining about the rust on an otherwise fine razor because someone was too lazy to remoive a blade. For me it's just part of thre daily shave and clean-up afterward.You inspired me to get out my Treet blades (carbon steel). I havent used one in a long while. The do give me a great shave. I just get frustrated with having to take them out after each use.
