That’s not the question.Why do we question guys who put their interests in blade life but praise those who turn their attention to acquiring $400 brushes? The one that's ridiculed actually effects the outcome of the shave at least. But why should either one or anything about this thing of ours cause such reactions? It is, for us anyways, a hobby. Live and let live.
But to answer yours maybe it’s because enjoying this hobby by extending the life of a $.06 blade seems silly compared to enjoying a hobby by spending $400 on an item that brings you pleasure. I mean you bring up money but it’s not about money is it? I mean if you think about it someone getting 100 shaves out of a $.06 blade saves very very VERY little per shave.
