    OK, @Carbide Mike , do you hear that? You have an interest in those carbon steel enders blades.

    That is a pretty good idea. I will work on that.

    Just a further update on the Injector shave. I just swapped in a new Personna and dialed back exposure a bit and did my head shave. Absolutely great results. Mild but very effective on the really coarse stubble that most razors struggle with. This blade was a very tight fit, that may also have made some difference. Thrilled with the results here.

    A couple of the introductory ads . Fall 1933. The introduction of the new Speed blades led to a lawsuit between Enders and Christy in which Enders prevailed.

    I have an Enders with a big supply of blades. The blades, although they appear to be very well preserved, are rough cutters. Do you need to strop these before using?

    Considering that even stainless steel can be affected by corrosion, I would strongly advise stropping _any_ blade more than 40 years old. The problem is finding the right angle for stropping, and maintaining that angle. You'd almost have to build a jig for each blade, and use a magnifying glass.

    Do the Ender's blades fit the Christy? Or am I thinking of something else?

    Yes they fit. The old Enders/Christy blades won't fit the Enders Speed which led to the lawsuit between the former partners.[​IMG]
