Dear all,

I am running out of free slots in my razor racks.

Excellent Gillette Flare Tip "L1" (1966) razor. Hard pressed to find any in a better shape. CONUS, shipped - $26. PayPal. The Schick is now SOLD. Thanks for looking.

Normally no but that one may be different since it's part of a set. Not sure how you would. I use Schick blades in mine and none of them are refillable.

No, this a regular Schick but with a lever.  Hydro-Magic was a feature of Schick razors from the late 1950s into the late 1960s. By opening the lever under the head, you can clean the razor without removing the blade, very convenient and hygienic.

In fact, you can refill the blade holder if you depress the spring using a small screwdriver. You can refill the holder, for example, with Personna mini-shaper blades or any injector blades you buy in bulk. However, this is not a convenient procedure. I did this several times, but, I am repeating here, this is no fun. Best. Alex.

I am just wandering why  is there a need in refilling the empty blade injector? Schick blade injectors (Made in China) are widely available from multiple vendors (from $4.90 per a 7 blade injector/dispenser) and this currently available blade injectors/dispensers match perfectly all of the Schick razor models, including the Golden 500, and they can be use with an ease and without any modifications. By the way, the blades in these Chinese injectors are very good.

I think he likes the look of the vintage piece and wants the joy of using it in conjunction with the Schick, although I see what you are saying, any injector dispenser should work with this razor.

good call the gold one looks fancy in the set and probably new ones dont come looking like that, Thats why I asked.  It just goes so well with the razor.  Im all about the matching, the details.
