View Full Version : Japanese Schick Injector?

Does anyone here own one of the Japanese Schick Injectors? How do they compare to other models?

I believe they're the last model of injector produced by Schick and were recently (or relatively so) taken out of production.
They're supposed to be good shavers - not as aggressive as the "E" types (the older ones with the bakelite handles and brass heads).
If you got one at a reasonable price, its a nice find.
They can go for a lot on e-bay, but if you're just looking for a good injector to shave with, there are other models that are more common (but likely not NOS).
Hope this helps.

according to the chart on safetyrazors.net
that is a 1999-2001 Type-O injector only sold in the japanese market, NOS sealed in blister pack tend to go for $60-$100 depending on the day and quantity offered,
i belive mantic has one, i have seen it in the videos,
now, BEWARE, these are the injectors that NWC copied to make their crappy injector reissue, they look similar, but the build quality on the NWC is quite poor, you can notice that the guard bar is curved insted of straight, and the blade dosnt sit cleanly on the 2 bumps (rule of thumb for injectors, blade fully in clip, straight bar, the blade sits straight on both support "bumps"),

Wait...what do you mean by copies? You're saying they are ALL copies...or only certain ones?

no, i mean that nationwide campus used this japanese model as a basis for their cheap injector copy, the injector type O is a formidable shaver from what i hear, but the nationwide campus injector is piss poor in the quality section, its a cheap chinese copy of the type O,
this is the nationwide campus injector
you will notice that it looks similar, but the head and handle arent exactly the same,

I see...well thanks for the heads up.
One other question. What's with the blades that come with this razor? They are called "Injector II" blades, and they seem to only be sold in Japan. Are they any different from the American Twin blades?

Back around 2001, I had the pleasure of buying three Shick injectors online at the www.ifinallyfoundit.com website run by the owner of Schick at the time. As noted at least one place on the internet, I was surprised to receive the Type O in a plastic bubble-wrap bag and no other packaging. I think I have one in the original bag somewhere, and will try to post a picture when I find it.
Now the website is:
http://shop.warner-lambert.com/ but no more razors and no more gum and candy as pfizer bought w-l and sold both divisions off.
