1972. And my dad used to look at me that way, but it was because of my hippie beard rather than a razor.

"The Schick Injector system. Some people don't use it just because it's different."

The same can be said today. There are some fellows who are leery of trying a Schick injector razor (or safety razor) because it is different than their cartridge shaving system.

"Sometimes different is better."

Unless it has 5 blades, a vibrator, GPS, an LCD, an LED and the cartridges cost a small fortune. Schick and Gillette got it right the first time.

Notice the young man's expression and he gaze. I agree, father and son have shared many similar moments together. W00t

You know, I use to get a look similar to that back in the early 60's and I never understood why. Smile

I remember the time but not the ad. In 1972, I was sophomore at the university, had shoulder-length hair, and grew a beard. (I still have the beard, but I shave my neck and shape the beard at the cheeks.)

The Type L Injector is what I learned to shave with, around 1967, and which I used until 1972 when I grew the beard.

Great advertisement and good razor. Although I swear by my DE Gillette razors, and they are the staple of my shaving experience, I like to mix it up a little with the Schick Injectors. The Schick Injectors are great little machines and can make an amateur feel like a pro, as I mention in a previous post. I would recommend you purchase one or several to try; as a bonus they are much cheaper than the Gillette Vintage razors and the injector blades are still readily available at pharmacies. Happy Shaving. Sam.

Looks like the Schick L1 Injector razor. Not sure of the date I started using mine, but it was sometime in the late 1960's or early 1970's.

I still have this razor, but prefer the Schick E2, which is a bit more aggressive, and consistently gives a close, comfortable shave. Smile
