Let's talk about single and double edged razors and the blades that they use.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I couldn't find any mention of an actual shave with a Schick Type D injector razor. I have the D, E, and F (as well as even earlier models that I don't think work 100%), so I should put in some blades and report back. I just got the D in the mail on Saturday, so I'm all enthusiastic again.
Paul, I've shaved with the butterscotch bakelite handled ones. They are somewhat aggressive, and provide a close shave. I used the Chinese Schick blades. You just have to be mindful of the blade angle relative to your face. Let us know how it goes.
It's fun watching the discussions surrounding these old Schicks. They're good razors and a great many are still in use, but probably not much by the original owners! My main attachment is the Krona DE that was purchased new at my local drug store and 40 years it finally defaulted and is now one of my prized possessions.
I finally installed a fresh blade into this thing... [If you saw my razor drawer, with all the live razors holding blades with some shaves left in them, you'd know why it takes a while to try something new.]
I finally tried it a few days ago, and it worked well. It was somewhat more aggressive than the last injectors, but not dangerous like a Muhle R41.
