    The Wall Street Journal has printed a number of articles on traditional shaving over the years. Here is one from September, in case it has not been posted here yet.

    Men Pick Up Grandpa’s Razor for a Close Shave—Too Close
    Sharon Terlep September 22, 2019

    From the article:

    "Safety razors represent a tiny fraction of the U.S. razor industry, with around $2 billion-a-year in annual sales, according to one estimate. Their growing following has made an impact on people like Nancy Woda, who with her husband runs Taconic Shave in Yorktown Heights, N.Y."

    The $2 billion per year is probably the sum total for razors of any kind. I wonder what the annual sales are for safety razors.
