just wound up with a NOS Krona and 3 Krona blades. ashamed to admit what I paid for it*. you did a lot better than I did. (*trust me, you don't want to know) the "ouch" part involves the original package price stating "$1.19"...)haven't used it with any other blades yet, but I'm really liking it. the gap/sweet spot is perfect for me. then, I scored another NOS injector, an L-1. see what you like about the Krona. glad you're enjoying it. one sweet razor for sensitive skin. I AM FULLA SCHICK, TOO ! Smile

I'm with you, SJR. Schick Kronas are the most undervalued razors ever, especially the silver tips. They're not for the aggressive, Gillette red-tip guys, but most DE shavers should make a place in their arsenal for one. The black tips are perfectly good, but the extra bit of weight at the end of a silver tip really puts it over the top. Gents, if you appreciate a long handle, you'll want to make an extra effort to land a Krona.

Been using my Krona for a few shaves now and it is quickly becoming my favorite razor. If you decide to put any of yours up on BST, I'll be watching...LOL...

It seems you are suffering from KKAD Krazed Krona Acquisition Disorder...

And the side effects are truly SCHICKening!

I just got my black handle Krona. Some pitting on the neck above the handle and some corrosion on the side. Got a silver en route. Hope to find a GOLD Krona one day.
