    This is true. I am shaving with some that @twhite honed for me. It is pretty cool to shave with a 100+ year old blade.

    Sunday's SE Shave

    Proraso Pre Shave
    Palmolive Classic Shaving Cream
    B 400 by Tom
    Gem 1911 Lather Catcher
    Original Gem Cutlery SE
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Barbasol AS

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Palmolive Classic Shaving Cream face-lathered well with the B 400 by Tom Badger brush. I did the two passes with the Gem 1911 Lather Catcher and vintage Gem Jr. blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Continuing my march into SEptember with another 1912 - the Streamline. I snagged this pristine example with the help of @Billyfergie. It's heavier and the handle has one of the best grips I've used. And the shave? Simply fantastic in every way. A very light touch lets the blade edge just glide along the skin. Those dolphins are really jealous now. :rofl:

    Lather: Stirling Grapefruit with menthol

    WTG, touch-up

    Pushbutton today for a nice shave. I really like this razor. It works a little better for me than the Featherweight. I like the vintage look and heavier feel. Smooth shaver and I usually get great results from it.

    Enjoy your day!

    Old Spice ships from 1973-1976 had 2 flags and an anchor showing off the two bow sails. Not sure if you can see this in the photo, however, I have another decanter that shows it better and I'll point this out when I post it.

    The following is copied from a thread by @BillyFergie from Aug 10, 2015 Titled: The Grand Ultimate Schick Injector....I felt it should also be over here... (The Original: )

    Schick Type F Injector....:)
    I received my Schick Type F in the post a few days ago from the USA....I gave it a polish and it came up Shiny, Shiny....The Schick Type F was made in 1941 and was only made for a few months because precious alloy metals were commandeered for the war effort....The Schick Type F is made of high quality polished Aluminium, Copper & Brass Comb.....These are very rare and hard to find at the right price...I just sit and look at this thing as its absolutely beautiful ....I have been informed that these were one of the smoothest shavers ever made....:cool:

    1. I loaded the Type F with an NOS Schick Platinum injector Blade....Martin (Dodgy) had informed me to be careful loading these.....The Type F is very tricky to load and it took a moment of farting about as the key doesn't seem inject the blade all the way across....I found that it loads easier when the razor is empty for some reason...:)

      Three Pass Shaving Routine....:p

      Hot Water prep & massage with Coconut Oil
      Schick Type F Injector
      Chinese Schick Injector Blade (New)
      Semogue Classic 208 Boar Brush
      Alphy & Becs Natural Shaving Soap - With Jojoba Oil - Vitamin E
      Organic Aloe Vera Gel
      LOGONA Man Aftershave Balm (From Germany)

      During my first pass I thought the Schick Type F was living up to its reputation as being a very smooth shaver and then I was suddenly getting a very Ruff Ride....The Damn Thing Stopped Cutting.....I decided to change the blade as it was a DUD I thought and opted for an NOS Schick Krona Blade instead.....I am away on Maiden Shave again with the Schick Type F and I completed my WTG Pass without further incident....I went for my Second XTG pass and I was getting a Very Rough Ride Again....I mean this thing was as Rough as a Badgers A+se and talk about uncomfortable.....I was having the worst shaving experience of my life here folks and I kid you not I wasn't a Happy Hector.....I was thinking that the Schick Type F was a Piece of Old Junk that was only Fit for the Bin....:D

      I Farted about with all sorts of shaving angles and I had it in my mind that I may have been spoiled recently with my experience's with the Personna Executive & Floating Head Injectors....I sort of ruled out a second DUD blade .....I was really disappointed in the Schick Type F Injector as I ended up with a Mediocre Shave and it was very uncomfortable.....I was thinking of sticking the Schick Type F up on EBay and letting some other bugger have the Pleasure of Shaving with its Company.....I was Miffed to say the least....:angry019:

      Yesterday I decided to have another attempt with the Schick Type F as it was annoying me....I decided to load it with a Chinese Schick Injector Blade...The Krona Blade might not be agreeing with it I thought...That was when I realized that I must have Ruined the previous blades whilst attempting to load it....I was using a Chinese Schick Injector Key and it seemed to fit the F Type better ....I still had to make sure the blade was seated correctly but it was easier to load....:cool:

      Well...What a complete turn around as the F Type was being transformed into a Magic Wand....I was in Love Again with my Schick Type F Injector....Schick Type F is so Smooth, Smooth and it was indeed living up to is reputation...I cant get away with the performance of the Schick Type F Injector...Its way up there with the Personna Executive & Floating Head Injectors for sure and probably then some ....I was thinking to myself that this thing may perhaps be the GRAND ULTIMATE SCHICK INJECTOR ....I thought my Type D was the business, but this thing is a totally different animal as the Head Dimensions are a lot bigger and it has a fair amount of Blade Exposure....It leaves your Skin just Smooth, Smooth, Smooth like nothing else I can compare it to....I would say its quite an aggressive shaver on the whiskers but ever so forgiving and mild towards the face....A bit of a paradox, I know....:)

      I ended up with the Most Perfect Ultra Smooth Super Close Grand Ultimate BBS Result.....;)

      The Schick Type F Injector does live up to its reputation as the Grand Ultimate Schick Injector and its up there with the Personna Executive & Floating Head Injectors that's for sure and maybe then some...:chores016:

      I like the art deco styling of the razor. It is much more appealing than the handles of the type G's that I own. How is the weight comparison between the two? It looks like the F would be a heavier handle.

      To me the Type F is the most aggressive of the injectors and along with my type I and J hydros is one of my favorites.

      Aye, the F type is the heavier of the two & a bit bigger in size....The smallest & lightest Schick Injector that I own is the D type...Its a very petite injector and also very smooth, but not quite as aggressive as the F type....:chores016:

      I accidently came across this as I was perusing our archives earlier today...

      I had to bump it up...I'm now thinking this is the Schick-Buster!!! The Schick Buster is a Schick after!!!

      This New Improved Schick Injector is a shaving dichotomy....It is my smoothest and most aggressive razor, and yet it is extremly forgiving....It contains many contradictions, but always delivers incredible shaves!

      And once again I agree with our SE & Injector Party Librarian.....The almost Magical performance of this razor, depends on having a blade loader with a key that fits this razor in such a way, so you can load a blade without buggering the edge against the blade stops. And I was paying attention and still blunted several blades without realizing it! But the Chinese Schick and EMS/Personna types reload easy...When this is acheived the shave is magic wand like....

      I also love the Schick C3 Repeater! I think these 2 might be my favorite razors with the F type being the Grand Ultimate Injector...I mean techniquely the C3 is a Repeater and not an "Injector" apples and oranges.....So it looks like my favorite razors are The New Improved Schick Injector and the Schick Simplified Automatic Repeater

      Still working on my New Signature Shave Kit....Maybe the C3 for traveling and the F type for daily...But this new signature shave kit is looking like this so far...

      The Schick F type is one I'd like to get, I could have bought one a couple of years ago on eBay for $20. :angry032:

    Yup, you got that right. Technically not a 1912, unlike the variant I will use later this week. :D
