my first shave
schick l type
aqua velva sport
Awesome Schick shave & photo Gary!
thank you Mike..i probably used a trac 2 back in early 81 when i first shaved but ..i don't really remember.i did have barbasol and av sport though..if i had a schick things would be different today..
That rabbit hole looks deep and inviting don't it.
yes sir..just unloaded 20+ rarely used gillettes..not shopping but i have a list....if you still had a black e...
I sold them off unfortunately. I offloaded a lot of injectors recently that I know will just sit around collecting dust. Unless you are buying them to display I'd suggest getting the onyx color handle ones instead, much cheaper if buying to use as a daily beater.
Problem is I still bought some other razors, less than what I had but much more expensive ones.
Now if you want an adjustable I have an extra I can part with since I have 3 of them.
my honest pragmatic "must have" list.clean blue chrome 66 g,or black/onyx e or g sets. beyond that is just collecting for me and not really needed...i would find the $ for these ones.
Schick 66 is doable though the irony is that when they first came on the market they were the cheaper version of the same Type G with a gold plated razor head now they tend to sell for more than them but they can definitely be found at reasonable prices if you are patient.
i am patient but would prefer to buy from a known guru..
Also keep in mind the gold plated Type G with the blue handle is not a 66 if you want the correct razor as per the set itself. The 66 only came with a chrome plated head and blue handle.
i like the look of the 66 because of the blue/chrome..most schicks were gold..i would be content with a 66 and nothing else ..as long as it was a clean one..not really a gold razor fan,hence my brit gillettes over others. but i like how my e2 shaves..and it's mint.but would prefer an e black/gold looks wise..i know i am picky..
Putting a WTB post over in the marketplace might get a hit or 2.
thank you sir..will do..
Thanks Gary..I really like the black bakelite & smooth chrome head on this one. The chrome finish on my American type G Schicks is textured with plastic handles.
My textured chrome head type G's...
awesome schicks Mike.
