    Wow! You have some of the coolest & oddest razors I have ever seen in one place! Thanks for sharing this. I'm sure I'll be admiring your collection for some time to come. Outstanding!

    Thanks again! Will give this a try. I was able to carefully remove the blade which was in the razor when it arrived using pliers to hold another vintage blade as a pusher, but it holds much tighter than my type B's or type C's.
    The blade holder is very solid, not flexible at all like my other repeaters. A thinner modern blade may be easier to insert though I am hoping.

    Thanks! I hope hand loading works out for you, these prototypes are too cool not to shave with!

    Thanks for the inspiration! Getting a blade loaded was so much easier once I realized this razor uses a flat spring to hold the blade tight. By rotating the head towards it's storage position the tension on the blade is released. You can see the spring held by a screw in attached photo. 20191227_214220~2.jpg 20191227_214400~2.jpg

    Very cool! That make me think it is a prototype. A couple of mine use similar methods to keep the blade tighter in shaving position and looser in the storage/blade injection position

    If I would have realized that earlier it wouldn't have been such a struggle to remove the blade it arrived with. :angry032:
    Oh well, live & learn. I also beleive I found the patent showing this razor here https://razors.click/patents/GB264203/ :)

    I've researched these razors extensively and have never seen this Type A injector before either. Good sleuthing on verifying it is a legit Schick razor. I would say it is a prototype and special one in that it is the design on the original patent Jacob Schick submitted for the repeater razor design. If it was sold at retail it should have patent info or patent pending and/or some sort of company or product branding on the razor.
    Same patent but US version here. US1655437A
    https://patents.google.com/patent/US1655437A/en?oq=1655437

    That patent was the earliest filed patent by Jacob Schick being filed in 1924. If that was a later razor head design or meant for mass production you should see it on the 1926 patent filing here which you don't.
    https://patents.google.com/patent/US1756439A/en?oq=US1756439a

    Congratulations on your find. That is a special and historically significant piece. That is the razor where it all started for the Schick brand.

    Thank you & thanks so much for the additional patent information! I was literally trembling with excitement as I was trying to show your post to my wife & had to have her hold my phone to read it because my hands were shaking so badly.

    I knew it was a special piece when I first saw it, but never imagined just how special it might be. I will be a grateful & humble caretaker of this razor.

    Although I've been a member for over a year now, these are my first posts. I hope to change that & be more active because even though I'm still a newbie to wet shaving, I have learned so much from so many different fine members at The Shave Den. ​

    I would also guess the 24 on the handle and razor head refers to a date specifically 1924 the same date as the patent application.

    Hi,
    This is my first post.
    I like wet shaving and enjoy collecting various safety razors. I took a look at this site and became interested in schick repeating razors. I want this sterling silver razor and I'm happy to get it and finish it beautifully.

    I have three schick repeating razors.

    Type B3 is heavy so it's very easy to shave.

    That one in Sterling Silver is also called a Type B3 is one of the rarest Schick razors there is. Congratulations on owning it.

    Thank you for your comment.
    This B3 has an initial sculpture so make it inconspicuous, and to correct the distortion of the head spring and repair the plating.
    Most of the Schick repeating razors have too much head spring clearance, but with the exception of type A, can fix them remove and fix with a burner.

    The magazine for the Schick repeating razors seems to come in two shapes.

    Both were usable without problems.

    However, the spare blade at that time can't be shaved very well. I prefer to use a cut AC type blade instead of a modern Schick blade.

    Howdy,
    Love to join the club!
    Just got my second Repeating razor and am in need of some help/advice/creative solution.
    My first repeating razor is a complete gold plated, leather sheathed B1 which functions perfectly and shave like a dream. I just acquired a C3 which lacks a blade bank and is currently soaking in Dawn to hopefully looses up the stiff sliding mechanism.
    My questions are:
    1) Can I safely use the B1 blade tray/bank in the C3?
    2) Where can I find a spare C3 bank?
    3) Has anyone tried to make a bank for the C razors?
    Thanks in advance.

    The blade blanks were meant to be a single use item. That is how the blades came when purchased. So yes you can use the blade blank from any repeating razor model.

    I just hand load my blades now.

    Thanks.
    Anyone with a spare bank?
