    About 90 initial investment for a mixed set of 50 blades, a decent razor, brush, shaving cream. After that blades cost about 16c each if you buy in bulk - 50 Astra blades about €8. Much better shave than any cartridge razor and it's enjoyable to shave. Bought most of my kit from shaving.ie, some from Knights in Stephen's Green. Found some other stores in the UK and US that seem good too but yet to use them.

    Thank you fellow Pastafarian! :D

    agree the fusion power i bought just before xmas are now down to 1 shave left then bin.
    my advice is dont buy those crappy blades as not long lasting and 3-4 shaves only.

    And still work out cheaper. Aldi 3 blade refill is dirt cheap and lasts me fine. 90% of price difference is paying for name and marketing.

    Just paid €19 for Fusion blades 4 pack in Amsterdam so to answer OP they appear to be hideously expensive in other places also.

    The Lidl 5 blade razors are brilliant and last longer than the Fusion blades. Cost 4.99 for 5 heads too so much cheaper. Fair play to Lidl.
