The Asylum Injector razors will be delivered later today and will be made available for sale on July 1st at 8:00 AM Pacific Time. The razor will be made out of 316L stainless steel. Weighing in at 99g (unloaded) it is lighter and more nimble than the artist club version of the Rx. I just wanted to show a few comparison shots of the two razors so you can have some perspective.

Like the Asylum Rx, this is a three piece razor with a tongue and groove design for loading the blades.

Thanks guys. I was not expecting them today. The delivery company called Friday and said they would ship this week and that they would email tracking when they had it. This morning, they called and said they were an hour out.

Phil, those look great.  Are you ready with a large supply of injector blades?

Looks great! In case I've missed the thread previously, do you have a Injector razor model/type that you would compare it to for aggression level?

I'm working on it. I get the Schick blades from Japan so it takes a little longer. I hope that my order arrives by Friday. If I run out of injector blades, rest assured that more are on the way.

I would categorize it as moderately aggressive. It is a hair less aggressive than the 2nd Generation Rx.

In addition to the Schick B20 blades, we are also offering Personna injector blades. The Personna blades are good for those who like milder less sharp blades.

This may be a ramble, so please forgive me in advance. When Phil released the original Asylum Rx, somewhere in one of the posts/threads/emails of that time frame, he teased us with the possibility of an injector version of the Rx, in the future… in my murky head, I figured rather than take the plunge into the still emerging AC format, I decided to wait patiently for a groovy new injector. The Rx was so sexy looking I was willing to wait like a prisoner’s bride. In the meantime my  Schick of choice has been a Type I. Maybe once or twice a month. Maybe three. DE’s my bag. Also tbh, I didn’t want to  stock another blade format. I was already using DE, GEM and injector blades. Well, my Asylum Injector arrived last week on Tuesday afternoon. Tracking said it was scheduled for Wednesday, so that was a nice surprise! Rather than use the B-20 blades I added to the order, I figured it would be a good idea to use a Schick Yellow pack of 7 aka Chick, as that’s my best frame of reference.

The first three shaves were definitely an adventure in newness. It was obvious from the first stroke that this is a razor that wants to be mastered and work it’s shiny ass off. Today was shave 4 with the injector. Definitely my best one yet. Not a nick or the slightest bit of irritation. I have to use even less pressure than I originally went with. And that was minimal to say the least. I’m liking the razor very much. It’s the best shave from any injector I’ve used. Same Chick blade. Gonna go for 5 over the weekend. Probably Sunday…

Unfortunately for the Rx Injector I had limited time for today’s shave. This week… I promise.
