I got a a cased Slim, J4, but I don't have the sheet/pamphlet that came with it. If you have a spare I'd like to talk to you about it. The '64 is my nostalgia razor, and while I wasn't looking to collect, I found a really great condition one on the Bay.
It happened to me, probably several years ago. I can't recall the blade, but the first pass was horrible, so I switched out the blade. I typically soldier through, then decide later whether or not to bin the blade.
As of Thursday, I now have both. I like them both, but I am leaning towards the wide body cap. And I don't think the look changed that much, just tabs covered up. And while I have not drawn blood on my earlobes, I have never like the sensation of the blade tab, in any razor, coming in contact...
My brass Christopher Bradley razor is my Goto razor. The blade stays in, the razor rinsed under the faucet, and wiped dry. Same procedure I used for any razor. I do occasionally (twice a year) use some Flitz if under the cap looks like it needs it!
