Can this Schick Injector have an Aluminum Handle?

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

Can this Schick Injector have an Aluminum Handle?

Post by Pauldog » Sun Jul 07, 2019 1:52 pm

I wrote to the seller to say that the handle must be plastic, but he said he was sure it was aluminum. Is this some rarity (since it's not a Type F with that head), is it a Franken-razor, or is the seller wrong?

Paul, this is an interesting issue. If you find out whether or not the handle is aluminum, please let us know. I had never heard of such an option on the old Schicks.

My opinion right now is that it's a Schick "66" with a dark blue plastic handle, and the handle happens to be kind of cruddy and so not as obviously plastic.

I also suggested that the seller try some metal polish on the handle, because that should bring an aluminum handle back to its usual silvery color.

A very similar one showed up recently, not claiming to have an aluminum handle:
