    I2v1, Schick Proline B-20, shave 3

    Reason for calling this an I2v1 is here

    BBS close shave with this razor and interesting observation concerning this razor and some other Schick injectors. Counterintuitive in that most people would assume more aggressive means a closer shave and that seems to not be the case thus far with these Schick injectors. They actually seem to perform better when you use a steeper angle to the point they are mild and efficient as opposed to a shallow angle to the point where they are very aggressive with a blade feel like a straight razor when you ride the cap.

    Same razor sans branding stamp as an I1v1 and gives the same shave.

    First shave with two new items with one being the The Personna SS PTFE (1) and my newly acquired Schick injector adjustable set on 4 and WOW does that blade make whiskers disappear.(Very similar to the GEM Personna SS PTFE) A lot less audio feed back while shaving from this razor compared to my Gems and Everready razors!

    Schick injector M3 adjustable razor (2).jpg
    Razor: Chrome Schick injector adjustable M3
    Blade: Personna injector SS PTFE (1):happy088: Very sharp and reasonable smooth just like a GEM Personna SS PTFE
    Soap: Razorock Lavender
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft
    Preshave: Wet the face + Aloe Vera gel
    Post shave: Alum + cold water rinse
    Post shave: Proraso green + witch hazel + Nivea balm
    Results : CCS,DFS,BBS + Alum block indicates minor irritation with one blemish weeper=:)

    Schick I2v4, Schick Proline B-20, shave 3.

    This one is the latter more common variant with the gold head and longer lever with writing on it which you also see on later injectors like the type K.
    Differences shown here.

    Surprisingly this is a more aggressive razor than the earlier short lever variants when used at the same shave angles. End result though is they all give a BBS close shave for me. It is not a question of performance but of preference.

    Blade : Personna SS PTFE injector (2) Very sharp blade
    Soap : Razorock Lavender- 1st Tub used up
    Brush: Razorock Noir 400
    Preshave: wet the face + Aloe vera gel
    Post shave: Alum block + cold water rinse
    Post shave: FINE fresh Vetiver
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + Alum block indicated minor irritation = :)

    The E3 has parallel groves on safety bar. The E2 does not.
