As I said in my introspective review on my Holy Grail Razor, I was waiting for another Schick Type B. It has now arrived. I am a happy man – I mean, I mostly am, but now I got one more reason to be happy.

It looks less pristine than my first Schick type B. Although, I must admit, less less pristine than the sellers pictures gave the impression of. And not only does it look better than I expected, but the action is much smoother than the first one too.

As can be seen from the photos, there is a few dark spots here and there. These are likely either the grime of years or corrosion products, and should clean up with a soft toothbrush and some dish soap. There is also some scrapes on the plunger, which almost looks like tool marks. The leaf spring looks dull and dirty. There is a small discoloration on the leather. And the blades are slightly sticky with what smells like sewing machine oil.
I am going to give this a gentle clean before it takes it’s place in my rotation, alongside my other injectors. And thanks to a friendly fellow shaver from close to the antipode of my location, there is yet another Schick Magazine Repeating Razor on it’s way to me. Needless to say I am also very excited about that – and very, very grateful too.

Nice one, HansWink It works out well that the more user grade of the two has the better working mechanism. I’m glad you found it so quickly! Enjoy.

Looks pretty good from here - when I was on the hunt for Schick Repeaters that blade tray (necessary for proper function) was the oft-mia part.
