    I'm curious about the B-20 Proline (that I just won a pack of) as compared to the Schick (Chick) blades that have a keyed dispenser.

    I don't own a microscope so I was wearing three pair of reading glasses trying to compare the two. Is the bevel the same or is there a difference?

    I know @Bird Lives has already tried them with great success and I think a few others have as well; maybe @Jayaruh and/or @EzraCobb if I remember correctly. Maybe @John Ruschmeyer too.

    I just loaded a few into an empty dispenser and then popped one in a J handle Schick for tomorrow's shave.

    I have transferred Personna hair shaper bladed to an injector but I have not used the B-20 Proline. That is a new one to me. I will have to give it a try.

    I was very interested to read that Lloyd was saying the B-20 was his new go-to blade so I was wondering what it is that makes the difference.

    Yeah, JB...I'd love to hear a stroke by stroke account of your maiden voyage with your B-20s...
    I loved mine...
    I put one in my Schick C3, when I hadn't shaved in 2 1/2 days...I was in a hurry but wanted to try the new blades that had just arrived. I dropped one in the Repeater's magazine and racked it through the system into the head. I didn't have time so I just used some Barbasol instead of whipping up some special lather.

    My first N-S cheek stroke swiped off the lather and left BBS in it's wake...And the razor felt like it didn't have a blade in it!! My reflexes had me actually glance at the razor head to see if the blade had somehow fallen out!

    Nope it was there....then I looked at the clean path it had left through the thick shaving cream. I put my glasses on and leaned over and got a good look...
    This stroke wasn't about whisker reduction.....This was WHISKER ANNIHILATION !! That stroke left soft smooth whisker free skin! Not one white whisker sticking out, :happy102:

    I went ahead and finished the first pass and could have stopped right there. And I had some pretty thick whisker action happening that day! But as usual I heard the baby calling...So I did a second ATG pass and a short Witch Hazel clean up pass and I was flat BBS! And my skin felt like a blade had never touched it!!

    These Pro-line B-20's perform like the best NOS Vintage Schick Blades....I'm knocked out!
    Didn't need to shave the next morning either....ha,ha!! These guys are like I think I remember the old Personna 74s to be...Very Sharp and Very Smooth! I hope they keep making these...I'm already addicted...I can't wait to try them in my other injectors.

    Very nice shave this morning with the ProLine B-20 in a J handle Schick.
    I wasn't able to give it a full test since I'm still recovering from yet another attempt to tame a razor ('36 Aristocrat) that I really need to leave in the drawer.
    However, even having to be extra careful while traversing damaged skin, I was able to get a very close and comfortable shave with minimal effort.
    I'm anxious to have a few more runs with these blades in a variety of my injectors.
    I really like the J's, the 500's, and the L's so I think I'm going to pop a B-20 in my SchickGrip as well.

    Hey guys...lets move this discourse on the B-20's over to the Injector and SE Party Thread...this is too much fun the stop...and I'm afraid we are totally hijacking Andrews Shop Thread...:lam:

    I'll see everyone at the Party....We really do need to test these Pro-lines....Injector Shavers present and future will appreciate our hard work and efforts...
