The Injector II are great blades. Use them with a Schick injector razor, like L, M or N types. The PAL adjustable is not designed to fit the twin edge blades. If you manage to force them in there- you can kiss the razor goodbye.

I think that if the J model doesn't quite do it for you, you might want to try an adjustable one (M). I regularly use the N "grip", which is one of the latest they produced - gives fantastic shaves. Blades are still available in the eBay US, but most sellers do not want the hassle of shipping them a...

I believe the Gillette Techmatic was used in some of the Apollo missions. Not too long ago one of the documentary programs showed what looked like a TV broadcast from space, and an astronout was shaving with it. But I wouldn't give a second thought to the title of the seller. :roll:

This is a great opportunity to get to know fellow collectors and to learn much more about the stuff that you like and beyond. Let alone a chance to do some good trading. Highly recommended. I attended the last two meetings, and this year will be no different. 8)

Yes and yes to your questions, the brit aristocrats are fetching high dollar. There is really no published reference on these, other than sporadic threads on the web. They can be nicer than the USA ones and are less abundant. In good condition they usually are well above $100. There are some good pi...

Mine is purple, and has the New York address on the ribbon.

One of my favorites! The heavy Barbasol. Nice shaves, I use the Derby.
Not sure about year but my guess is soemwhere in the 1920's.
Not too aggresive IMO close shaves.
Weights:
Big Fellow: 85 grams
Barbasol: 90 grams
38C: 112 grams.

Re: Vintage Injector blades - Questions

Does anyone have any experience with any other vintage injector blades OTHER than the old made in USA schick blades? I've found some old Schick blades in white/green packaging and some old PAL injector blades at pretty decent prices and was wondering if they were any good. Also, what about the twin...

I agree that it is not in the buyers best interest to inform the seller that he has misidentified the object in question. It is in the best interest of the seller to get that new information out, especially if the item is much rarer than previously thouhgt. As to deals . . . they can be found. I pu...

You have yourself a bet!
There are still bargains to have on eBay, but they are getting more far in between, I'll admit. If I had a dollar for every bid I lost in the last couple of months, I could buy myself the double ring razor :(

and then the seller posts his question to the auction page and now this other ebayer, lets call him "Richard", has torpedoed his chances, or anyone else's chances of getting a bargain. Doubly so, because as luck would have it, at exactly the same time a thread about this popped up on a shaving foru...
