I can source the Chinese Schicks locally, so I would like to try out some other brands. Schick platinum plus and personna74 or others are of interest.

Thanks!

If I still had mine I would give them to you. They are nothing special except for the fact they are hard to find. Sure not worth what folks think they are.

But good luck in your search.

Thanks Johnny, I was pleased with the DE blade, so I'm curious about the injector. With so little blade options for the injectors I want to get a better idea of what I like.

Hi there,

Yeah, the DE blade's a real beauty. Very sharp and fairly forgiving. I will load one up as a special treat sometimes and end up getting at least 7-8 really nice shaves.

Unlike Johnny, I found the Personna74 injector blades to be quite different from the many other blades I'd tried over the years. Now these things are sharp! Actually, a little more than I need, and I dial down one number when using em in the adjustable. I'd be surprised if you didn't notice a difference.

If you ever see any Gillette Platinum Plus blades, they're almost as sharp but more forgiving. Personna Super Stainless blades are also good ones.

Martin

I got the Personna74 and another vintage blade on Amazon for better pricing than the bay. Not affiliated, just a heads up in case your quest here ends up unsatisfied.

I believe you can buy personna injector blades on the Ted Pella site for dirt cheap.
