This was early 90s when online shopping wasn't a thing. Internet was viewed over dial up if it was accessable at all. Had to rely on supermarkets or barbers to get razor blades.wow, just out of curiosity, in what world is there no DE blades available in the market?
Supermarkets where I lived stopped selling DE blades and concentrated in the newest twin blade carts from Schick, Wilkinson Sword and Gillette.
It was a bad time as I hadn't discovered the joys of using a straight at that point.
As an aside but not completely unrelated, I did leave a hundred or so blades for one of my family members to use, but he ended up giving away several tucks of nacets to another distant relative who is most appreciative. He did mention a few times how he's glad to have finally got decent blades.
