I don't think people need to extend blade life. They are only giving up the best 90% or so of a blade's shaves. Those who haven't learned how to use these shaves are not qualified to comment.
I'm not sure I can respond without digging a deeper hole for myself. My original statement lacked something. That "something filter" disappeared when I was in surgery for 8 hours in August. Anesthesia can do that to the brain.Your comments are only facts to you and opinions to us.
To answer the question directly the answer is no but the question seems to ask also for conversation and opinions from no one in particular. I know not of a degree in razor blade usage. I even with my limited experience have opinions worth something. Otherwise why are we here at all.
I must be the outcast here, but I can get at least a month of daily shaves out of my blades comfortably.... most times more.
I’m only relaying how I feel about using a blade more than say 5 or 6 times and why I feel it’s not a thing to even consider. I shave for pleasure. Over the past year I decided that I’m going to take what I don’t like In my life and make it enjoyable. I’ve been depressed for many years. I’ve always hated shaving and now I love it. I buy farrrrr less beer. Now I but soap, razors, blades... you get the idea. I’m not telling anyone to be like me. I’m here to share my new found happiness cause I honestly do not have many people in my life. My wife and my two daughters are my world.I'm not sure I can respond without digging a deeper hole for myself. My original statement lacked something.

This topic has come up many times. It almost always devolves into financial elitism. Those who think the extenders are trying to save money never accept the possibility that there is another reason. We end up feeling like @chevyguy1982.
No one is forcing you to use blades for longer than you wish to lol. Just giving reasonings/arguments as to why those of us who use a blade for more than 3 shaves, do so. I think most people on here toss blades after less than five uses anyway, so those who don't are probably the minority.Oh god...
Ok ok I guess in my “ignorance“ and “opulence” I toss a blade out after 4-6 shaves.
I’m fine with that.
Heaven forbid I enjoy something that costs a few cents a day. Think of all that wasted metal.
I own more blades currently to last me years at my current pace.
Way to suck the joy out of something guys.
