Those of you who collect vintage Gillette razors know what a valuable resource the Mr. Razor site (http://www.mr-razor.com/) can be as a reference. Does anyone know of a similar or comparable site that shows images and gives details about standard SE razors such as the Gems and/or about injector SE razors? Thanks.

I remember seeing some discussion on one of the other shaving forums about a reference entitled, "Safety Razor Compendium" by Robert Waits. I don't know how much it may have to offer about injectors or Gems. You can find it at The Razor Emporium where it can be downloaded as pdf document. Hopefully others will have more information to share about the content of the resource.

Robert Waits' Safety Razor Compendium is an incredible resource. I have not seen anything like it anywhere.

Waits' A Safety Razor Compendium is truly the bible of vintage safety razors. I find myself referring to it on a near-daily basis.

Lesser known but still worthwhile is Before Gillette: The Quest for a Safe Razor, also by Robert K. Waits. It covers everything from the earliest razors up to around 1901. While not as comprehensive as Compendium, there is info here that cannot be found anywhere else.
