    Japanese Twin Injector Blades

    For those perceptive gentlemen who use later model Schick Injectors which can accept the Japanese Schick II twin blades, the blades are available for $15 per tuck of 10. That price is at least $10 less than, and about half of what some sellers ask, on eBay. If you select JP Post Small Packet...

    Schick Type O is Being Produced Again

    I bought a very rare NOS Schick Type O Injector razor (the last model in production) a couple of years ago and have been using it for the past few months. Recently, I have seen some threads mentioning a knock-off of the Type O that is available from eBarbershop. Out of curiosity, I bought one...

    First Shave with a Schick Type O

    About two years ago, I stumbled upon a Schick Type O Injector razor on eBay. The gentleman who was selling it evidently didn't know what it was because he listed it in such a way that nobody would have turned it up in a search. Consequently, I picked it up for less than half of what I have...

    First Shave with Streamline

    I just purchased a near-mint Streamline set from my friend Mountainsea, and wanted to tell my experience with this fabled razor. I just finished the shave, and it was BBS. However, I experienced a fair amount of alum block sting and two tiny weepers. All in all, I figure that the Streamline...

    First Shave with Feather Injector and Blade

    A few days ago I stumbled onto a Feather Injector Razor, with actual Feather Injector blades, online. I thought that they were just a legend, but there it really was. As it was a BIN, and the price was very reasonable, I immediately jumped on it. I couldn't believe my luck. Long story short...

    First Shave with Schick Type F

    After reading a post by my friend Alan (Coolbus18) about his first shave with his new/old Schick Type F, and how much he enjoyed it, I decided to put my recently-purchased, near-mint Type F to the test. As with any new-to-me razor, I checked that the blade was shiny and evenly seated, then...

    Who would have thought it?

    I am an Injector razor fan, but I enjoy reading about almost any shaving subject. I was browsing in safetyrazors.net and, in the DE razor blade section, I came across an article that contained the following quote: "In May of 1933, Business Week reported that Gerard P. Lambert, of Listerine...

    Most aggressive razor I've ever used

    I've been wet shaving for 50 years, mostly with injectors which I prefer over DEs (although I have also used many DEs). I have shaved with almost every injector made, including a Cobra Classic (I know, I know, it's really not an injector--but might as well be). The only one I never tried was a...

    Hercule Poirot and G F Trumper

    Yesterday evening I was watching an Hercule Poirot episode on Netflix called "How does your Garden Grow?" In it, Poirot goes shopping at the Geo F Trumper shop in London where he talks to George Trumper and buys some cologne. Later, he experiences some billing problems, and Captain Hastings...

    Curious about my Schick J4

    A while back, I bought a NOS Schick 500 off of the famous auction site. It truly is a lovely razor in every respect, and I am very happy with it. However, I have a question about it. The head says Schick 500, the original hang-tag says Schick 500, it comes in a brand new Schick 500 case, and...
