Am I mistaken in thinking standard injector blades are either out of production, or at the very least, nearly impossible to find. Who makes them, if anyone? With the HuntLee coming relatively soon, I'm just making plans for bulk purchases.Biggrin

Gary, you can easily get both Schick and Personna Injector blades. I generally buy my Schick Injector Blades from drugstore.com or some CVS Pharmacy's carries injector blades.

Even I was able to buy some of the new injector blades ... so I know that they are out there somewhere.

Gary, I was just thinking about this the other day ... in anticipation of the Huntlee! Thanks for starting this thread ... as I'm injector-naive! Biggrin

When I've had injectors, I've either gotten blades from Amazon (even available with Prime) or Razors Direct.

You can also try stores like 'Sally's' they should also have them.

Curious to know what the difference in an injector razor and SE razors. I ended up with a Schick E2 that I can't even use because I don't have a clue of what to put in itHuh What's the difference between the Kai Mild blades I use in my Cobra along with the Feathers and the Feathers that go in Ever Ready's etc? I guess my dumbness, if that's even a word, of wet shaving is starting to rear it's ugly head as I venture into different type razors other than the DE.

When the Huntlee SSI comes out, you will be able to buy injector blades at Lee's Safety Razors and BullGoose Shaving Supplies. Biggrin We would be foolish to stock the razor and not the blades. Tongue

Injector blades come in a cartridge like this.

They are shorter than the Kai and Feather blades. This is what's needed for your Schick E2.

Schick Injector blades look like this and can be found/purchased HERE

You can also get them from a medical supplier, like Ted Pella. But I found it to be a pain because you need to have someone sign for delivery.

Thanks for the link Johnny and thanks for the info jpakstis. So I assume Ted Pella has something to do with the Pella blades that people mention in their Every Ready razors?

But back to the original topic, would we of expected anything less from Phil "the Enabler" than to sell the blades to go with the razorBiggrin

It would be great if those blades were a bit smoother.
Are the Schick blades the smoothest around?

I like the handles too.

But, I am almost as old as Johnny and I remember what injector blades are.

So when timimmns doesn't know what an injector blade is, while it is a little shocking to me it is nice to know that there are many younger shavers out there that are starting to learn of "The Old Ways."

I've had 7 smooth, dfs shaves from the Schicks. Pella blades coming today and I also found the deified Personna 74's(waiting on them too). I'm really looking forwards to the HuntLee injector as I'm finding that my de's are are resting while I'm using the "E".Biggrin

Ted Pella out of California sells injector blades. Inexpensive.

I personally find the Personna blades from Connaught to be much smoother than the chinese Schick blades, plus they are made in the USA. Then, you buy them from England... ;-)

I'll just say I'm 30 and have shaved since 15, always with the latest Gillette gizmo. So while I'm young, I'm sure there are some younger ones than me. And to be honest, I do feel like wet shaving is a thing that every man should experience at some point in their life or forever if they enjoy itBiggrin
