So I notice there are a lot of people using Injector Razors.  Can anyone tell me if there is one out there that is comparable to the Merkur 34C in terms of how it shaves?  I get a great shave with it because it is not too aggressive as my poor sensitive face can't handle to aggressive.  I have been thinking about trying an Injector but I know nothing about them.

Thanks in advance for all your help

Your comparing apples to oranges, the merkur is a de while the injector has a much stiffer we blade with a lower profile. Haven't tried one but I have a few, id like to try one soon

It is somewhat apples to oranges, but the Schick Type L is probably your best bet. It's my favorite, as it is exceptionally mild and comfortable.

+1. The "L" or just about any letter code after that. Or just get you an adjustable and fine tune it to your liking!

As others have pointed out, injectors and DE's (and other SE's for that matter) cannot really be compared directly - the shaves are just too different.

However, if you're not a fan of aggressive razors, the L type is certainly a good place to start. If you find it too mild you can always get another one - it won't break the bank.

Ok so I took your advice and got the Schick L type and used it for the first time this morning and I just have to say I was really impressed with the shave I got from it.  It is a very mild razor but that is ok it agrees with my uber sensitive face.  I noticed after my first pass there was still a lot of hair left and it seemed like a lot after the second pass but after my third pass I was like where did all the hair go.  LOL  I literally had to a very minimal clean up pass and I really didn't have any irritation at all.  I am a believer, and thank you for all of the advice everyone gave me.

It was the cartridge of razors that the guy sent with it it just says schick on the cartridge so that's all I know. I looked in it looks like there is some Persona blades for these injectors and then just the regular schick that looks like what I got.[Image: 357e82f625213db36b7b2014b33b248c.jpg]

I'd suggest an I2 Hydro-Magic if you can find one. Nice middle of the road, not too mild, not too aggressive. I personally prefer the shorter handle.
