So those that know me , know that I'm a SchickHead.I have 62 injectors in my museum. My favorite is the E-1,E-2 and D. There has been much misidentification due to older sketchy info. I have 17 E;s so I can speak with some experience.In the pic you'll see my Canadian Schicks also.
A G is not an E no matter how one wills it.Appleby's page was a start, there's more out there, the links of which I have posted numerous times. Please if you're not sure post a pic of the underside. Check the shave wikis, read the threads before you open one to clean it which will screw up the plate tension on the blade.

and if you're not sure ask.Biggrin

ps. I will be doing a full pictorial on the E showing up close the differences because the descriptive language on the net is sorely lacking in detail.

Looking forward to the breakdown of the E-series injectors. I've found it difficult to identify the various versions of these razors.

I have four Schicks, and know next to nothing about them. Any chance you can help identify?

Cream smooth Bakelite handle:
MADE IN U.S.A.
U.S. PATS
1806087
1969945
INSERT KEY
EVERSHARP SCHICK in serif font, counter-clockwise.
Blade guard has parallel lines across it.

Cream ridged Bakelite handle:
Same as above. Stamp of EVERSHARP SCHICK seems deeper and EVERSHARP seems to be in italics serif font, counter-clockwise.
Blade guard has parallel lines across it.

Butterscotch Bakelite handle (two of these, nearly identical):
"U.S. PATENT
NO. 1806087"
"OTHER
PENDING"
"INSERT
KEY"
Circular section reads: "Schick" (mixed-case clockwise), "Injector"(mixed-case, outline font, counter-clockwise)

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

It's very easy to recognize whether you have a E or a G type.
When ther is a line (seam) through the center of the handle it's a G.
When the handle is smooth in the middle it's an E (also has a richer butterscotch color or can be black as well).

and of course the are the Canadian Schicks of which there is little know and seemingly made up of, "let's use what we have in inventory", injectors. A smooth, seamless handle does not an E make. Even amongst the last of the E's it can be tough to id.. I collect and use even if it's nos.As I collected each the question I asked myself is, why did they change this or that, details like the tabs in the tension springs or the type of flow slots. Even the shape of the "waist" that the rivet runs through is different betwee E and G. So in answer to your question Rod, yup I sure was.Biggrin

This may be a silly question but why are injectors so much less popular than DEs or SRs?
