Your opinion here is based on the cold, hard, fact of a capitalist system . . . the quest for profits trumps all. Your theoretic boutique manufactures will still be driven by profit motivation, and we will still be able to buy blades at some price. Look also at today's makers of straight razors . . . for a price unheard of one hundred years ago ($3.00 then, $150+ now) one can still purchase a good quality straight razor, and some of our classic-shaving brethren have made such a purchase.
