    It peeled right off!

    Found an Ever Ready at a flea market today.

    1930 is when ER first stared making that razor. I don't know what you can find locally, your best bet may be www.connaughtshaving.com Nice razor!

    Vintage Avon find

    I've passed on a lot of Avon lately but couldn't let this one go. Avon Country Christmas with a full bottle of Clint cologne, soap and talc dated 1982. I'm going to give this to my son because he was born in December of 1982. I'm guessing this originally had a second part to the case.

    treet razor?

    I have a couple. They have a different safety bar than the 1912's, it's similar to the kind on the Clog-pruf. They aren't stamped pat'd 1912 because of this.

    Gem Bullet/Flying Wing blades?

    If by "clip" you're referring to the spine on the blade you do not have to remove it.

    Best Blades

    I voted other because the carbon steel SE blades made by ASR are not only my favorites, but I also think they're the best.

    The Cult of Streamline - Streamline & Jewel owners

    That razor is from an ER Bathroom Set, it's a 1912. The case is a mismatch.

    My Uncle's Avon

    That's pretty cool! It probably contains Spicy, which is similar to Old Spice. It should have a sticker on the bottom identifying the scent, unless it's fallen off. When you get time could you add this to the vintage Avon thread?

    Is it wrong to use Ivory soap

    I'd venture a guess that nearly every person reading this can offer a better option that Ivory soap. Unless you're just using it as a bath/shower soap.

    Injector razors should be produced again.

    How old is this GEN Junior?

    I agree with UncleScott, that's probably a later model one. Here's a page from a merchants catalog from 1947 or '48, note the Gem at the bottom of the left column. It's in the same box as yours and describes it as having a plastic handle, even though the one in the illustration appears to have a...

    My Recent Injector Acquisition and a Question

    Some of them just don't fit into the various categories for some reason. A while back I picked up one that has an E frame, but a G handle that is plastic with the mold seam on it. I chalked it up as one made as they were transitioning to the new G handles and still had some E frames to use up...

    The Cult of Streamline - Streamline & Jewel owners

    William, I'm glad that it finally arrived! The Streamline truly is a wonderful razor, and it sounds like it worked great for you. Congratulations again.

    My first single edge purchase.

    As long as the blade stops are present, and the tab at the back of the frame is still strong enough to hold the cover plate tight and the blade in place you should be good to go.

    Id Help Needed For NOS Injector Please

    That's a good example of the point I've made around here before about razors always being expensive. By the way, that is a great looking set!
