I should almost start calling it Schick Sunday for myself, I like my Schick, GEM ..... razors and they usually deliver a nice shave when technique is good with a sharp blade. Schick made a lot of interesting (L type)theme razors also and I really enjoy that part of their history of injector razors.

Blade: Personna SS PTFE injector (4)
Soap: Tabac
Brush: Yaki Cashmere knot 24 mm
Pre shave: Brush wash face with CeraVe hand bar soap + dab Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
Post shave: Dickinson's witch hazel
Post shave : Nivea balm + Fine fresh Vetiver AS with witch hazel
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + aftershave indicated minor irritation + 2 tiny blemish weepers= :001_smile

Sunday shave Nov 10-2019 and it will be with a Ender's speed razor that has been out of production for some time.
This one has been revived from storage from decades of not getting the proprietary blades that were designed to use in this razor only. The razor is using a Schick pro line B-20 blade with a modified Enders blade carrier acting as blade retainer in tandem. For 1930's> this razor has space age design, is a well thought out razor and it can shave well with a modern sharp edge and the handle is a joy to use.

Razor: Enders Speed model - MFG1930's >
Blade: Schick proline B-20 with a Enders blade support carrier.
Soap : TOBS Sandal wood
Brush : Razorock Noir 400
Preshave: Brush wash the face with CeraVe hand bar soap + A Dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel to beard area.
Post shave : Dickinson's witch Hazel
Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood aftershave + Nivea balm
Results : CCS,DFS,BBS +aftershave indicated minor irritation + 1 weeper= :biggrin1:

This Sunday as usual will be with my Schick Razor : Schick Adjustable injector M3 with a twin blade from Japan.
This one razor has put all the others on the back shelf.

The Schick Twin II blade is a amazing, I have one in my Stick Schick L type injector on I think 24-25 shaves and it is still producing nice shaves. Not sure how it would work on a 3 or 4 day growth but for a daily shaver it works great. See you for the Sunday shave.
Have some great shaves!
 
I have gone a week before and no problems but thats using an adjustable one. I usually ditch a blade after 40 or so shaves. Not that I need to but thats about three months of shaves for me and it's easier to remember when to change them.

I always like the look of the D razors and it was a easy way of cleaning the inside of the razor every once in a while.
