So I go back to DE shaving, from electrics and carts., about 6 months ago. I'm getting b.b.s. shaves from my R89 and Slim, regardless of the blade or the soap that I use. The other day I find my Dad's Schick Injector with a cartridge of Personna Platinum blades. This stuff hasn't been touched in 40 years, since he passed away. I slipped in a new blade and proceeded to face lather with Tabac, and get a b.b.s. shave. The next morning I go through the usual routine, but this time I'm using a combination of VDH and Williams that I grated up to fill my bowl. Another great shave! The difference is, with the injector razor my shave time is almost half of that when I use a DE. What's going on? I'm not complaining since, all the shaves are equally good, but how come I'm able to shave so much quicker with the injector razor? Do any of you guys use both types and find that one is quicker than the other?
