I've bought a pack of Ted Pella PTFE coated injector blades and today I tried it with my Injector Adjustable M1 (I used regular Schick Blades with it and wasn't impressed).
Loading went with no problem at all ( I read threads where people complained they need to put Ted Pella blades int Injector box in order to lad it, but it looks like it was with older Injector models). In my case it was as smooth as original Schick Cartridge and I made sure that blade didn't touch blade stops when loading (it was noted that Ted Pella blade "sits" forward and might be dulled because it rub to blade stops , but I checked it with magnifying glass and it was a big gap between blade and blade stops when key was in).
I was somewhat disappointed with the shave : - I shaved after shower, used AOS preshave oil and good shaving cream , but I felt certain drug/resistance when shaving. No nicks/irritation but shave was so-so (might be even worse then original Schick blades).
People praised Ted Pella/Injector combo, so I was wondering what was wrong ?
Bad batch of blades, my technique, lathering ?
Anybody else have experience with Schick Adjustable/Ted Pellas ( I used settings 4). My other razor blade is Futur/Feather on settings 3 and it glides very smoothly (while sometimies I got nicks).
Is Ted Pella significantly duller then Feather DE ?
Anybody else has similar experience with Ted Pellas/Schick Adjustable ?
