"Insert key here"

How the heck do you open these up? I have two Schicks that have a metal notch that prevents you from sliding the gizmo around to insert the blade.

My blades arrived at work today so I haven't had a chance to test it out with a blade. Is it self explanatory once I put 2 and 2 together ? =]

You don't open them. With the razor facing you, insert the stem in the razor (the correct position will have the word stem facing you) then you slide a new blade on the razor. The old one will just fall off.

Ah makes sense.

One has really bad green scum on it. How do you suggest I clean it if you can't open it up?

You take a small penkife and slide the blade under the right side up where it notches around the nib or tab. pry very gently and turn the spring to the left and downward (counterclockwise) To close it back up lay the knife blade over the nub that sticks out and close the spring onto the blade. When the spring is at 90 degrees and the notch lines up with the nib or tab hold the spring in place and gently slide out the pocketknife. Be patient, take your time. If you get frustrated stop and don't force anything. Its funny the first couple id did were a pain, now i can literally open one in seconds and closing it its the same. At first though it took a few tires and a tad bit of patience.

Thanks guys. Very excited to try these Chinese Schick blades. I've only used an injector with vintage blades before and don't remember anything about it.

old injector blades were a *bit* sharper "feeling" than current blades, but the current crop of blades are fairly smooth, and depending on your beard can do a passable job.

track down a pack of slim bristle pipe cleaners, prop open the razor (you can use an injector stem, (or just save an empty one) you can get a pipe cleaner into the razor to scrape out the gunk that the cleaning solution of your choice has loosened. once started into the razor, pull it part way out the other side and you can pull the pipe cleaner sideways out the "front" to degrunge the blade chamber.

Thanks guys. I happened to received a lent out Feather ASD2 so The injector trial will start tonight. I was able to load it successfully - the razor didn't have the same notch as described above. I manually inserted the blade with my fingers :x

I use an old toothbrush and castile soap on my injectors and they clean up very well. I have three at this point and enjoy them the all. Very good razors. Good luck with yours.
