Best source for Sensor Excel Blades?

I've been DE shaving after returning to wet shaving from electric a few months ago. Although my DE technique has been slowing improving I'm really not a morning person and find I take a long time to get the prep, shave and 'clean-up' right and thought I'd try a cartridge to see if it would speed (some of) the process up a bit. I'd read good things about the Gillette Sensor Excel cartridge on this Forum so scored a new one off ebay and - lo and behold - have found it gives a damn good shave in a shorter time. Same prep but the shave time is reduced and - yes - it's just all a bit easier (go ahead - shoot me). So, the question is, where is the best place to score the best replacement blades for it at the most reasonable price? Thanks.

Bit left field this, I know, but I've found an online supplier who offers the Razorpit for £8.99 inc shipping - cheaper than a 10 pack of replacement blades. I'm wondering if it's worth taking a punt on one of these and seeing how long the couple of packaged blades last. Anyone used one or have any thoughts?

I buy the Gilette Sensor blades from my local supermarket but they're pretty expensive at €11 for five blades. The Mach3 blades are €11 for four carts and in my experience gives a much smoother shave. I like the Sensor but once I've used up my blades I don't think I'll bother with it again.

Another good option is the Gilette Contour. You can pick up a handle on eBay and the carts are €15 for 10 here. Shaves much the same as the Excel although the blades are not spring loaded so you have to be a little more careful not to apply pressure.

Ive used one for years. Brilliant thing and genuinely extends blade life by a fair bit. You need to use from the first shave though.
