I tried the schick type n for the first time. Supposedly it came out of the estate of a schick engineer somewhere in the northeast us I believe. The seller couldn't produce any proof but the price was right and the razor was brand new. I wanted something special for Thanksgiving. I used a new chick blade, wow signal soap and after shave. I've heard the n called mild. I would say it's mild compared to like a type g but not as mild as one of the lady schick injectors. Wasn't quite blood free. Had a couple tiny blood spots that quickly sealed themselves and no irritation. I shaved against the grain .It was a damn fine shave but I believe I could get bbs or close to it.
