Adapters to fit Gem blades into wedge blade razors

https://www.etsy.com/listing/613777958/ ... e-adapters

This seems to be in development. I offered to lend the guy my old wedge blade razors to help, and in the hope of getting some free product.

Re: Personna Twin Injector Blades

I meant twin injector blades, since I had never seen any before from Personna. I don't think they'll stop making single injector blades, at the very least without a key, for barber/salon and lab use.

Re: Shows I'm anticipating - new seasons coming soon???

I just learned that "Better Call Saul" is finally returning in August. A lot happened in the previous season, leading me to believe that this will be the season where Jimmy becomes Saul and starts working for Walter. I was disappointed by the one episode I saw of the Amazon series based on Philip K....

Re: Ask and ye shall receive - RAZORS. And BLADES

I got the second box of Personna prep blades in the mail yesterday, from a different seller, and it was in the same box. I think this indicates that they're the real thing, and I'll be selling them for about 25¢ a blade. I'll be trying one out very soon. I've never shaved with this before, though I'...

Re: Gillette No 58

It looks like plated brass to me. The aluminum Super Speed handles I've seen have been very shiny. You may also be able to tell by weight vs. a similar razor of known materials. It looks more like a Super Speed or Rocket than a Tech, as far as comparing it to another razor. I started fooling around ...

I knew Schick and Gillette had made them, but I had never seen any before from Personna. Must be old stock from the 1970's

Re: Ask and ye shall receive - RAZORS. And BLADES

It's always been American Safety Razor, though they seem to be owned by a different company every few years. What I had read on more than one forum is that the blades marked "For Hospital Use" are the ones to buy. Sometimes they are called "med prep" or something similar. They are used for shaving p...

WTB or Trade for - Gillette razor parts - Tech and Tuckaway

I'm looking for a nickel Tech head, preferably 1950's, and the bottom plate from a 1920's silver-plated Tuckaway. Preferably a British Tuckaway, but the main thing is that it's the same material - silver plated. Failing that, I could trade or sell the parts I have - a very nice silver-plated British...

Re: Ask and ye shall receive - RAZORS. And BLADES

I'm getting two different boxes of 100. One arrived the other day, and one hasn't arrived yet. I unwrapped one blade from the ones that arrived, and they say "hospital use."

I'll edit my post to mention that.

Re: Best price for Personna prep blades?

I unwrapped one from my first order (the second order hasn't arrived), and it did say "FOR HOSPITAL USE." So that tells us that 74-0002 is one code for these blades. I believe it's the code for a box of 100, based on what I saw at medical supply websites. What I'm wondering now is how these blades d...

NOTE THE PRICE REDUCTION

Adding this to bump it and reduce price.

I'm willing to sell small quantities, but the price will be higher - about 25¢ each, plus shipping.

Update to blades: Most DE's will be 25¢ per blade, with some variation for specific blade and quantity. If you buy a lot of them and take them off my hands so I can concentrate on selling razors, I will give you a very good deal! Packs of 5 Astra Superior Platinum Personna - DE blades labeled "FOR H...

Best price for Personna prep blades?

This might be the one - about $25 for 100 blades:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/332700326063

I just got a similar price from a U.S. seller who either ran out or hasn't relisted yet. A lot of sellers are asking roughly twice as much per blade.

Re: My New Kind of S.A.D. - Slant Acquisition Disorder

The money-back guarantee is a big plus, and the price is right at only $15. But where is it made? How can they make a good razor that cheap? I couldn't find anything about it except for the one review on Amazon, which didn't give much detail. And I just got my second bakelite Phoenix slant. (If you ...

My New Kind of S.A.D. - Slant Acquisition Disorder

I recently got one from Phoenix, and another one is on the way from them. I just ordered the Razorock "37 German" head, and I'm eyeing the Maggard slant head. Does anyone know anything about this one - the GBS slant razor? I don't even know where it's made. It's pretty low risk at $15, but I hate sp...
