    LMAO. No, I wouldn't use your stuff for business. Just for my personal background on my PC. Thank you.

    Filomatic Inox Inyector, Schick blade, shave 1.

    That is how injector is spelt for these razors which are Spanish made and were produced in the 60s and possibly into the 70s.

    I don't have much experience with injectors but compared to a Schick I 2 this razor is much milder but shaves just as good if not a little bit better. The only mild razor I have that shaves as good as this but is nowhere near as mild or efficient is the G.E. Jones Shake Sharp V2.0 which is a DE but shaves like an SE. The handle is really well designed also, very comfortable in the hand it feels like you are holding a piece of dinnerware. It is also a very easy razor to use since even though it has a narrow cutting angle the balance on the razor when held in the hand almost always falls right into that range without any effort.

    I think I am going to go back and forth between this and the I 2 for the next few shaves see where my technique is at now.

    My Schick B1 is a little dirty looking. What's the best way to clean one of those up? You'll see it tomorrow in the SOTD picture and you'll see the handle is a little dark.

    A little Simichrome, some Q-tips, and a clean cloth and it’ll be shining like new. :happy036:

    I like the feel of this Razor in my hand when Shaving , probably more so than any other short handled Schick. In comparison to the B1 it is very mild, but it is very easy to get a decent close all round shave with it.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Morning TOST Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #375 Synthetic
    Valet VB2
    Valet AutoStrop (24)
    CWR
    Dove Men+Care Post Shave Balm

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Morning TOST Shaving Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #375 Synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Valet VB2 razor with a Valet AutoStrop blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Dove Men+Care Post Shave Balm. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Sounds like this Injector would compare very closely to a Schick L Model Injector.

    Most likely since that model would have been it's competition for sales. I don't have an L model to confirm right now but I will at some point once I shave through the injectors I have now.

    FWIW, that is not dirt; it is tarnished silver-plate.

    The styling is interesting in that it seems to borrow heavily from the PAL Adjustable and Personna Injectors.

    The aluminum foil and baking soda truck never worked for me. Some silver polish will work or my go-to Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish.

    That's good to know. We have both silver polish and Mother's. I'll try one of those. Thanks!

    You can also try some stainless steel sink cleaner. I've used it successfully to clean up completely blackened Autostrops.

    Schick Hydro Magic I 2 with (S)chick blade, shave 8.
    hmi2.jpg


    I never did see how many shaves I can get out of these blades. This blade is still good no signs of dulling yet. I am going to try for 14 (2 weeks) worth of shaves out of this blade. This maybe the best shave I've gotten out of an injector so far. This is 99% almost perfect BBS. The Filomatic I am going to switch back and forth with this razor wasn't close to this shave though it is maybe one the best mild razors I've used thus far.
