Gents, a little help please?

I've been loving the shaves from my 2 Schick G types. Although there is one cosmetic difference I can detect, they seem to shave equally. I will photograph them this evening...

But my question is, how can I take the blade out short of injecting another one? Don't want to mess with the spring. I'd like to clean them thoroughly and display them sans blade.

You could always insert a new blade half way in, then remove both blades. Shy

Yep, that's the easy way I have used a very small screwdriver to contact the edge of the blade, and push it out.
But Celestino's idea is safer and easier.

Why would you want to do that? Injector razors are designed to load a blade with a blade already in the razor. To this end new razors always came with a copper blade blank installed. There should always be a blade in an injector razor. The used blade holds the base plate and top cap apart so the new blade slides in smoothly.

Trying to load a blade into an injector without a blade already in it is difficult to do without dragging the edge of the blade across the blade stop and ruining the edge. In fact, recommended best practice when loading a blade without one already in the razor (for example, an eBay purchase) is to waste a blade. Load one into the razor and immediately load a second, discarding the first blade.
