One of the things I like about vintage blades is the fact that they came in easy to use dispensers. I've found that after I empty one it's usually no problem to take it apart, load it with new blades and then put it back together again. No unwrapping and handling blades more than a simple push with my thumb and a blade is loaded. I'll post pictures of how it works with various models later but I was wondering if I'm the only fruitloop to do this.

I've read about it for injectors (I guess the newer dispensers are flimsy, so some people put their blades into an older one), so I've thought about it. But I haven't actually done it. I should too, since I'm not a morning person, and handling loose blades too early is probably unwise. Smile

I may be missing something, but don't u have to unwrap and handle the blades to fill the dispenser.

Brian....just prepare your kit the night before.

Yes you do.But your not doing anything else to distract you, your not just coming out of the shower, you can do it later in the day when you're fully awake, etc.etc. The only drawback is the little boxes are easier to store.

I just loaded my Gillette Stainless Steel blade dispenser with 11 Wilkinson Swords, and 3 Personna Blues. It's a great way to reuse a dispenser that originally only held 5 blades, and use up some blades that I had in a baggy in my dopp kit. The dispenser looks cool plus it's safer loading the razor because I don't touch the blades edge.

Don't be a girly man. If you cannot handle cold steel in direct proximity to your hand there is less hope once installed in a compound tool requiring a whole separate set of learned muscle and grip articulation.-previous comment in jest.

Hey, I had to touch em when I loaded em. each one twice if you add in unwrapping them. I didn't even come close to cutting myself. Smile  Merry Christmas Kav, and a Happy New Year to you too.

As for the injector dispensers, if you have old blades in the used blade compartment use a telescoping mechanics magnet to grab them and pull them out of the dispenser. I just pulled 4 used blades out of my 15-pack Schick Platinum Plus blade dispenser. It works great, and it's easy, and no more blades rattling around in the dispenser. Use the smallest magnet you can find.

They are pretty useful but I think they are bulky. I prefer my blades in wrappers.

I've been known to reload the plastic Crystal dispensers with a variety of Russian and American made blades.
