Thanks, yes I believe I do have an E2. I'll switch it to my dial as far as using the twin blades.
I forgot to ask if anyone has compared how do these blades NOS Schick twin injector blades 1973 compares to the current Japanese Schick Twin II blades as far as efficiency and longevity?
I have quite a few of these NOS Schick twin injector blades which are currently being sold for $24.95 for 2 blades on the auction sites, far more costly compared to the current Japanese Schick twin injector blades.
I realized I also have the Schick M3 aka "protector". I didn't know the blade gaps were different and had a "protection " mechanism compared to the other Schick adjustable dials.
I thought mine just didn't have the insert in the spine or was removed, good to know it was made this way.
I placed an NOS Schick twin injector blade on this one but haven't tried it yet.
I just had a really close smooth shave with a RR Satin Silver Hawk with Schick Proline blades so I will wait until I have a couple days of growth before trying the M3 .
Would like to know if anyone has compared these blades with the current Japanese Schick twin injector blades.
Thanks for all the info and feedback. View attachment 858907
HAHA! I actually think your right and that goes for the twin blades as well. I just got a notice on ebay and the price went up to $31 shipped as they were only $27 last month when I made my last order. Oh boy I better get a backup Type M before they start going for big money.
Wow! That’s the highest price I’ve seen yet for a Type M Adjustable. You got one for a good price. I mean once paired with the Twin blade it will out shave a lot of Razors costing a whole lot more and you’ll get an incredible smooth efficient irritation free shave from it.
I've been using my M2 (I believe thats correct for mine) with Proline B-20s for a few weeks and had some amazing shaves with it.
Just got a NOS L1 and a pack of Twins and had even better shaves - didn't think that was possible! Going to try a Twin in my M2 when the Proline dulls.
This is mine.

Cost me all of £11.50. There are bargains to be had still, if you keep your eyes open and are quick.
I like mine so much I'm on the hunt for another as backup - at the right price of course
interesting info and now I'll have to check mine out when I get home.I believe it actually is an M-1. Jim @Chan Eil Whiskers pointed it out to me. I call mine an M-1a, it looks identical to yours. The M-1 typically has the "Schick Dial" on the handle insert and the M-2 says "Adjustable by Schick" on the handle. The telling part between the M-1 and the later versions is the adjusting dial itself. The later versions have a cross on them, while the M-1s do not. I call it the M-1a as the insert says "Schick Adjustable" not "Dial". The M-3 doesn't have an insert and is nicknamed "The Protector" because of its blade protecting mechanism (which exists on some M-2s hilariously enough). The thing to keep in mind with the classification system is that it was not invented nor endorsed by Schick. The guy who created the Schick injectors page on safetyrazors.net appears to be the one who invented the categorization system to make it easier to discuss and compare the Schick Injectors. He may not have originated it but instead co-opted someone else's system. What I'm getting at, is that with any system that isn't designed by the company will have flaws. Especially when it is retrospectively applied to a group of razors that are notorious for having many different varieties and options that have not been produced for many years. His system also may not be all inclusive, missing a few razors within each category (like our M-1s).
Thanks for that Joel .
I was aware of safetyrazors.net and his method of classification. I've been using it as a reference when hunting for Schicks - and it seems to have caught on, even some savvy sellers on ebay are using his letter naming convention.
With that in mind, I think I'll just refer to mine as an M
But for me the M is fast becoming my favourite razor. Being able to dial it in to suit my preference makes it a no brainer.
Prices seem to be climbing on all good condition injector adjustables I just saw one go higher than any before but it was a NOS one and there were a lot of bidders..
I'm driving the prices up. They see me coming. I'll quit bidding or buying.
Hey, everybody. These injectors stink. Do not buy them.
That should fix the problem, Frank.
I saw the Type O listing—if I remember correctly, the price is $384! Type “O!” Indeed!
