A quick thought on the cost of blades.

A question on blades. It’s not a whole lot different from today’s prices!

1937 ad for Treet blades or 1941 Gillette – 4 blades for 10 cents ($1.65 in 2015) or $0.41 per blade

91X2lR4PtDL._SL1500_1937a-488-1941How about a deal on 1943 Berkley’s? 18 for 25 cents ($3.44 in 2015) or $0.19 per blade

blade-life-01-18-1943-088-M5

1949 Persona ad, 20 blades for $1 ($9.99 in 2015) or $0.50 per blade.

Now the shock! I converted this for the PER CARTRIDGE !!!

article-1191456-0540DE58000005DC-584_468x384$0.08 to make the cartridge,  $0.03 for the packaging, $0.48 taxes (government gets their cut!), $0.73 for the store, $2.40 for Gillette

 

 

PS. You don’t need to suffer when you camp!
