    Default Buying in Large Quantities

    If a person buys DE blades in large quantities (100's), will the blades dull over time as they sit?

    not if they are properly sealed and do not sit for years on end

    I think DE blades stored for an extended period of time should be fine if they are kept away from the elements. Nowadays they are stainless steel, so I would think as long as they remain in their packaging they should be fine for many years to come.

    At one new blade every week, if you buy 100 you should be good for the 2 years it will take you to use them up (or even longer).

    I have 5+ years old DE razor blades in the bathroom, no issues whatsoever.

    That was my computation as well. I am thinking of 3-5 years worth up front.

    Yep, unless you buy these old vintage Gillette super blue which can rust over time you should be OK.

    Considering I use a DE maybe once every two weeks, my stash of Swedes will outlast me! I'm not worried they will loose their edge.
