    I've been looking for a Pal since last July when I was involved in the InjectoMatic pass-around. I woke up this morning with the news that my beautiful bride scored this one for me! Now I just have to figure out what she's angling for... :D

    That is really cool. Nice examples of these like that don't grow on trees around here, which means she probably spent some real time trying to score it.

    Double special. I award her a unicorn for the gesture.

    Wow! Never saw one of those before. Are the blades still available? (sorry for the dumb question)

    She's up to something I reckon. Been married 46 years myself and this has all the signs of a female trap.

    Now all you have to do is be on the lookout for new car brochures casually left about. Perhaps a real estate flyer or two from say...Mustique Island in the Grenadines, or maybe information pamphlets expounding the virtues of "conflict free" diamonds.

    Tread carefully.....very carefully.

    These take the single injector blades made by Schick or Personna. We are under contract for a house, so I don't think it's real estate... I will keep my eyes peeled, though!

    Only dumb question is the one not asked. Yes blades are available.
    Few shops stock them, but easy to shop online. These are referred to as Chick blades. Labeled Schick, made in China, and they fit the vintage razors and shave very well.

    Not dumb at all. Also be aware that this Pal is one of the most wickedly effective safety razors ever. But a good one.

    Razor appears to be NOS! It still has the red "blank" loaded, and zero signs of wear. Has anyone used the Pal Hollow Ground injector blades? They appear to be dusty, but it doesn't look like there's any rust or corrosion.

    That is so cool! Now put it away up on a shelf somewhere. It is way too nice to use.
