Schick G1v3, personna blade, shave 3 Last iteration of the G1 made in 53 - 54. It differs from the first variants by the rounded ferule that the spring is attached to. This is probably one of the best milder razors I own not a perfect BBS but it gets the job done with little fanfare. I will also say having used the G1v1 made circa 46/47 this razor is a little bit milder than that razor but much more efficient. My guess and I'll know on my next shave is that this razor and the G8 are probably the same shaver just with different handles.
