    My first shave with the famous Pal Injectomatic was a nice one. I loaded new blades into both my Single Edge and the Injectomatic with the Vintage Personna Mini Hair Shaper from the 90s of which a recently bought some 700 odd of off the bay.

    The Pal is definitely an efficient razor! I can see how with practice this could be an extremely close shaver. The grip has a unique feel with the broader width and grooved sides plus the handy ledge that extends from the bottom to set your fingers on.

    The look of the razor is unique among injector and I really like the pinstripe-esque look of the lines on the head. Pretty much an equal result on both sides, but I have yet to find a razor that feels as smooth as the Single edge. All in all, these are both excellent razors that demolish stubble that turn scruffy pirates into esteemed gentlemen :D

    What insert do you use on your Single Edge? The 3 dot?

    Waiting for my Single Edge to arrive from Supply, meanwhile not really suffering. With Twinsies top notch on 5 for the beard. Might try cranking it up for the head shave next time to see if it can get into top tier territory.

    I have the V2 with 3 plates on its way, will be my first shave with Injector razor. Considering my overly positive experience with GEM and ER razors paired with Personna GEM PTFE SS blade, I have a feeling that the SP+Personna PTFE SS blade will not dissapoint

    Hey Tom,
    I have the two dot or classic option inserted.

    I prefer the 3 on a few days growth. It is a VERY smooth injector.

    Give yourself time to adapt to the major difference in weight of the Single Edge. After a few weeks, it becomes pretty natural, but it is the polar opposite of 99% of most injectors. I really like the all metal, quality feel of the Single Edge myself. Looking forward to your impressions:happy088:

    Just remember that the Personna blades they send with the razor, while good blades, come in a finicky (crappy) injector. If you have trouble getting blades injected, especially the first one, it likely isn't the razor, it is the injector.

    Your best bet is to either manually load the first blade, or sacrifice the first one and inject a second. When you put a blade into an empty injector, it can get bunged up, leaving you with a crappy shave and a foul mood. The Personna blade injectors dont help. I won't buy them anymore because they suck to load so much. I am excited to grt my Supply because I can easily load the one I have manually, and use them up to get rid of them.

    Congrats on the razor!

    Merry Christmas!

    Good morning friends! Last night I had my first truly decadent shave of December. I made a wonderful, shiny, yogurty smooth lather from my Stirling Executive Man. The Pal Adjustable, The Shy Girl, whispered sweet nothings into my ear. Swipe by swipe the whiskers faded away and left not a hint of irritation. The Alum was silent, the AS splash was cooling and man did my face feel great! Hope you all have a great day my friends!

    Fresh shimmed GEM in the Damaskeene, AOS tallow, make for a shave that sings. Baby dolphin butt smooth.

    Two great top tier razors :happy036: Nice to see them being put into action and delivering great results. Makes you wonder about progress in shaving systems since then. :signs002:

    I'm aware of the loading mechanism, there is also a trick I saw where you push down the screw and the plate loosen up a bit to inject the blade without damaging the sharp side of the blade, if that don't work then manual is no problem considering I wipe dry my razors after every shave, that leaves me with manually doing the blade after every shave. Not bothered at all about this even if I didn't cleaned the razor after every shave, considering how good are the GEM PTFE blades, these should be the same in quality considering is the same grade of blade and same manufacturer

    So after getting lost in USPS space for a few days and tracking totally disappearing, this fella up and showed up on my doorstep today.

    The seller was kind enough to clean it thoroughly and load in a new blade before shipping. So tomorrow morning's shave is now spoken for. I've really enjoyed focusing on my Weck, but my SE journey is about to begin.
