The price of razors

At the Deadhead Fred, a 4-pack of the Gillette Sensor 3 razor blade costs $7.00.

A 4-pack of the Gillette Sensor 3 disposable razor, which includes the same blade and also a handle, goes for $5.50.

I’ve used both — there’s no difference in quality. And, of course, I now buy the disposables, though it’s not a very Portland thing to do.

My guess is that Gillette has more competition for its disposable razors than for its blades.
