So, I picked up 5 injectors the other day at a flea market and have decided to get some blades and try them out. Got to order the blades as nobody carries them anymore around here.

Anyway, I think I have a M1 Adjustable, a Grip, an I1, an E3 and a G8.

I would like to know if there is any difference on how " aggresive" these might be or are the all the same?

An since I've never used one, any tips on how to use them?

Thanks in advance and enjoy your shave.

Certainly YMMV, but my own personal experience was that the E3 was slightly more aggressive than the I1 and G. The M1 set at 7 is just about equivalent to the E3. The shaving angle of the injectors, unlike regular SE razors, is quite shallow. I found that finding that angle came very naturally, just by gripping the handle comfortably and applying the razor head in a way that just "felt right." A few strokes and you'll get it.

What John said. I get my blades from drugstore.com. Here is some instructions. Follow #6 for a great shave. This applies to all Schick Injectors.

You are sure to love the injectors, after just one try, you might be asking how it is not so popular. Schick really made something great, spread the word to keep it going.

I would say that in my opinion the E3 is quite a bit more aggressive than the others. I have E, G and L injectors and the E is the only one that "bites" if you are not careful. They are all great shavers, especially the E.

In my experience, Drugstore.com is always quicker and sometimes cheaper.

I bought the injectors off Amazon where, if you got the 4 pack (7/pk), then you got free shipping and it worked out to about $5.50/pk. So, if I don't like this injector shaving stuff, gonna have a lot of left over blades. Working on a backup plan of having my wife use it.
