Found one of these a while back and after clean up I am using it daily for now. My question is, can I release the lever to rinse it, while keeping the blade in place for continued use? When I got it, it didnt have a blade in it and cleaned it up just fine. But I am afraid to release the tension on the blade for a thorough after use rinse for fear I would lose positive control of the blade, and possibly damage it.

Anyone ever try opening the lever on one while trying to keep the blade in the head without damaging it?

The lever is there to facilitate the removal and insertion of blades, so it shouldn't be much of an issue.
Good luck.

You can release the lever for rinsing. That's what it was designed for. The razor has a pair of tines that protrude through the lower portion of the head and through the slots in the blade. When the head is opened, the tines hold the blade somewhat loosely in place allowing thorough rinsing of the blade. Blades should actually be loaded with the head closed like any other injector. Trying to load the razor or remove the blade with the head open might damage the tines.

Thanks guys, this is just the info I was looking for.

Is is a good but mild injector. Mild in a good way. I can get lazy with it and it has yet to bite me. I'll also ad it is a very "vocal" razor. Even more so than my E-Type. I'd say it is comparable to my I-Type in terms of performance.

Thats the ticket. Injecting a blade into a open Hydro as some might do is asking for trouble. But flicking the lever and rinsing of the yechh ? Exactly what Schick/Eveready intended you to do.

Great finds!
It and the E-2 opened and both are above average shavers.  I have shaved with all the Schick's head variations other than a couple of lady's razors they made. I still like the shaves I get from them.

Do you happen to have a photo of it?  I think it's the same as the Personna SE razor.
