    We have threads for other razors brands and since it is that time of the year Sept. 1 - 30 might as well have a dedicated thread to all things Schick i.e. injectors, DE, band razors, etc.

    Nice close shave, smooth and efficient when you find the right angle to use this razor.

    Schick C1, Schick Proline B-20, Shave 2

    This razor has the distinction of being the only open comb razor Schick ever made and possibly the only open comb injector ever made. Shaves like the C2 at the same shave angle and same blade feel only difference being the feel of guard on the face.

    SOTD 09022019.gif When I first got into wet shaving I passed up a number of Schicks. I thought the metal handles of DE's looked more substantial. I was young(er) and less wise. This was my razor used today.

    That razor might be my favorite injector I've used thus far. That one will be making a few appearances from me later in the month.

    Gary, what is a Canadian E-3? Just a newbie question in the interest of broadening my understanding of single edge razors.

    Enjoy your shaves,

    Jeff

    This is the reference that is used to designate the different types of Schick injectors.

    Schick I1v1 (I57), Schick Twin blade, shave 3

    i1a1.jpg i1a2.jpg

    What a smooth and efficient shaver this razor becomes when using a twin blade with it. Super close shave also.

    Normally some people refer to this razor as an I55 because it was believed to be introduced in 1955 but the actually introduction date is 1957 and the reason for I1v1 is to correct the nomenclature normally using for the I and J models as per my thread here which shows why and the proof of 1957 as the introduction date for this model razor.

    Schick B1, Schick Proline B-20, shave 3

    Nice close shave not a BBS but more than acceptable. This razor is comparable to the C models but will get you a little closer shave than a C when used at the same shave angles.

    I might be able to help out because I have different Canadian Schick injector razors.
    The 1st one to the left is a Canadian E2 because of the roughed only surface safety bar and has the ear wings on the main curved spring.
    The 2nd to the left is a Canadian E3 with parallel grooves running along the safety bar with ear wings on the main tension spring with "Schick injector" stamped on the main swivel rounded tension spring flange with a rounded rivet.
    The 3rd from the left is a newer hardly used E2 and the 4th one is a E5 with the black handle and no ear wings on the main tension spring and has "Eversharp Schick" stamped on the Main tension spring flange part.(E5 was near the end of the Schick Canadian plant life production.)
    Schicks E2,3.5 (2).jpg

    This is a Canadian rare G1 hybrid Schick injector with the seamed handle and typical G tension spring with the "Eversharp Schick" stamped on the spring flange I recently purchased. This would of been created near the closing down of Schick plant in Niagara Falls Ontario Canada.

    I will be joining you folks for Schicktemper when I'm done testing my Everready 1924 shovel head Friday, see you on Saturday.
    Have some great shaves!

    Just in case anyone was wondering DE razors like the Krona, Eversharp Schick and Schick Platinum are also welcome for Schicktember. This isn't a Schick SE only thread.

    If you never seen a Schick Platinum DE razor this is what one looks like.
