    Not to leave the ladies out. I am consolidating the Type H and K razors into one thread. Variants will be grouped first by type then by handle styles since it assumed the same handle should shave the same.

    Type H razors were the first foray into injectors marketed to women. They all share a rectangular styled shape. These were produced between 1947 - 1952.

    1st variant

    Style 1- This one was sold as Lady's Fashion razor and is commonly referred to as an H1. Produced 1947 - 1952.

    2nd variants

    Styles 1 and 2 - This one was called a Schick "DEB" razor. It is also referred to as a H2. The 2 styles differ by the color of the cap which came in either a red or turquoise color as seen in the picture below. Produced 1948 - 1951.

    After 52 Ladies razors disappear from the market until 1962 with the introduction of the Type K models. These were produced from 1962 - 1975 and come in 4 major handle styles and as such the variants will be split based upon that.
    The common features of the Type K injectors is they all are stamped Lady Eversharp on the razor head and all have a hydro-magic lever for easy blade and razor head rinsing.

    1st variants

    Styles 1, 2 and 3. These were sold as Lady Eversharp razors. They came in 3 colors, blue, pink and white and shared the same handle style as a long handle Type J. They are also referred to as Type K2 razors. Produced 1962 - 1966.

    Styles 1, 2 and 3 - These are shorter handled versions of the 1st variants sold as travel razors. They are also referred to as K3 injectors. The came in 3 colors, white, blue and pink. Produced 1964.

    3rd variants

    Styles 1, 2, 3 and 4 - These are characterized by their concave shaped handles and are also referred to as Type K1 injectors. These came in 4 colored handles, pink (pictured), blue (pictured), white (pictured) and white with glitter (not pictured). Produced 1966 -1972. Also of note the ones with rivet holding the handle to the razor head were produced between 1966 - 1969 and the ones without 1969 - 1972. Both styles are featured in the picture below.

    4th variant

    Style 1 - This razor was the last of the Lady Eversharp's made. It has a long Type L style handle and only came in a yellow color. This razor is undesignated but if using Appleby's designations should be classified as a Type K4. Produced 1972 - 1975.
