1978, I think. Used an Atra and Foamy.
I remember seeing both razors and blades hanging on the shelves when I went through the checkout line at the grocery store. I never saw anything shave related other than electrics at Sears, or Montgomery Wards.That's a good question! When I was a kid (in the 50s and 60s) there was no internet, so any buying would have to be done locally...like at the drugstore or grocery store. You could order stuff from catalogs, I guess, but I don't know if blades were available from places like Sears or Wards. I have no memory of how I obtained blades. I hope others have a better memory than I do.
