Just copies of an interesting series of posts from a BST thread I figured more people would find interesting now and in the future:

OK, you're right.  Let me rephrase my statement.

Quote:"No, I don't think so.  The hydromagic lever means you need to use standard-thickness blades because the added thickness will over-strain the retention spring and weaken it over time; which will ruin the razor.
So while the twin blades may fit in Schicks with the hydromagic lever...they're not recommended due to the potential damage that may result.  The twins are too thick for everyday use (IMHO)."

There was a healthy discussion on one of the UK forums where one user measured the thickness of the different blades and measured the spring preload at different thicknesses...(the link I can't find now).  Here's a separate discussion though on the relative merits of twin blades (many mentions of how they won't fit in hydromagic razors).  http://www.atgshaving.com/threads/schick...719/page-5

That's very interesting.  Thanks.  I think I have a twin blade sitting in a hydromagic levered Schick right now.  I should probably replace it with a single blade dummy.

Anyway, we don't want to hijack Nikos's thread further.  So I'll just conclude by saying these razors he's selling are interesting examples of a fine razor design.
