A Shave with an E2 smooth,comfortable with an ultra close all round finish.My Best Ever with a single blade Schick,the blade is the key.
Haven't shaved with my Open Combed Damaskeene in ages....This really is truly a masterpiece!
I think I'll be hanging out with one for awhile!
Funny I actually used Gillette Foamy Barbershoppe Fresh cream...
Shave was full blown perfect!

A great Shave the PAL, but not as good as yesterday with an E2 which was so good thanks to NOS Dutch Schick.
I have not used that razor. Nice looking set up there
When I saw this razor lot with the Promotional Montreal Olympics Schick injector it brought back a happier time when Father and the boys & girls at the Ford dealership were buying lottery tickets in big #'s as a group, the Lottery was to pay down the cost of the Olympics.(First large lottery in North America) Dad was jotting down #'s on live TV(big event) and when the #'s were finished out of the air tumbler he thought he had won and my thought's were easy street here we come. He later admitted with a red face in front of the neighbors that they were his #s he was writing down and we were back to struggling in life again in a instant.

very cool Ron..school and playing in the neighbors tree fort were my memories of those years.and my dad's friend's 1972 blue mustang..
Schick G8, Personna ptfe blade, shave 4.
This is the mildest of the type G razors I've used. I did a few swipes with the G1v3 and I could feel a difference in amount blade feel to the face and audibly they sounded different. With that said this razor is another one of those unremarkable performers that just gets the job done with no fanfare what so ever. It maybe mild but it is very efficient and I got a BBS shave out the razor.
What is surprising is how much the G models I've used vary in shave aggressiveness. If I had to put them on a shave scale of 1 - 10 the G1v1 would be at about 5 1/2 the G1v3 4 1/2 and the G8 a 3 1/2 or 4. Either way all them get the job done and all regardless of aggressiveness are efficient shavers.
To put that scale in context here are the 3 G1 variants.
G1v1 1946 - 1947
Pictured on the right is the G1v3 1953 - 1954 and on the left G1v2 1948 - 1952
G1v1 is identified by the spring which still says Schick Injector like the E model injectors.
G1v2 and G1v3 both have the newer spring that says Eversharp Schick. v2 has a squared ferrule and v3 has the rounded ferrule same as you see on the G8.
I'm glad I brought some of your fond memories back also, strange how a razor can stir a memory like I described also.
i also remember these..
olympic edition gmc ..
If an injector is an SE, why does the title of this thread say "injector and SE" ?
They are SE but in a class of their own.
SE in wet shaving terms refers to a type of razor aka a name not the actual blade type.
Its the opposite, surely?
An injector is a SingleEdge razor blade. Isn't it?
Yes single edge blade if we define the razor by blade type. As I said it's a name designation not type designation.
For example if someone's name was sh*tbag does that make them a type of sh*tbag?
I think i prefer fuzzys answer.
a de is a single edge with 2 sides ....a trac 2 or atra is a double edge..
Separate names with a comma.
