Oh believe me I know. It took almost 4 years to get through my first 200g jar. That was during an era when I had about 6 soaps in rotation, on average** (which is not many given all the lunatics in this hobby who have literally dozens!!, LOL). I've downsized even more the past couple years, and currently only have 3 on rotation.

**even then, I used the MdC 3 times a week, most weeks.

I've never before had interest in any vintage shaving gear.

I've never before used an injector, but just yesterday I received what is apparently a type-K4 Schick (long type-L handle, yellow, marketed to women), NOS in its original unopened packaging, and now I have a 1950's era injector on the way.

Having never used an injector, I have zero clue what blades to get, though initial early reading suggests I should just get 7-blade dispenser of Schicks available on Amazon.

I've joked (but not really, I want it to happen now....) that I want someone like Blackland to make an injector. The one by Supply just doesn't interest me, fwiw.

Should have this by March 13--

What can I say, I buy what I need rather than stockpile it like so many toilet paper enthusiasts.
It’s the Australian thing to do ;p
You can buy a whole of 12 Arko sticks here in Australia.... NOW!!!!! online... You better hurry while stock last!!

where was the decent deal?
The English Shaving Company.

At the time, they had a Valentines Day 15% off, plus they offered an additional 10% off (I think) for new customers signing up to their newsletter. I got an Agrumes and Vetyver for ~$106USD shipped. If I got that domestically from Maggards, for example, it would cost $150USD.
