Gillette spent four years inventing a replaceable razor blade, in the first full year of sales, he only sold 51 shavers and 168 blade knives. But the next thing Gillette to do was creating a new business model. He sold millions of all his blade knives to the U.S. Army with an extremely low price and a discount, so that these soldiers became Gillette's loyal clients. He also managed to bundle sale the shaver and the blade together. Just over one year, he has sold 90,000 shavers and 12,400,000 knife blades.
