    Decent video showing as good as any process. I did this once with a G Model Schick and although the thinner blade flexed some and was very audible during usage, the shave was great. YMMV.

    I am sorry but life is too short, I prefer the rigid thicker blades or as Cary Grant said " I prefer the clean sweep of the tempered steel".

  4. The point is experimentation and the curious mind, I have done this using a Supply razor and with great sucsess and with a little tinkering to reduce the flex in the blade it got even better. If you ever ran out of injector blades you could if you have a mind to, get around the problem by adapting a DE blade and still shave with your injector razor. Who came up with the idea that you could use a injector blade in a Gem Micro-Matic razor instead of a Gem blade? Someone with a curious mind and a little experimentation. :) P.

    Lol, each to their own....but i would never be in that situation where i ran out of blades, and I’m pretty sure nobody on this forum have run out of blades. Everyone is well stocked up

    I'm more interested in how to use one or two injector blades in a DE razor... :p

    Because as well there is a far greater selection of DE blades.

    Yes, but when you put the razor to your face you never notice it. However, if you're shaving your legs then I can't help you. :rolleyes: :D

    It's an interesting experiment, perhaps not one I would try myself, but it's good to know it can be done.

    It must be great to have the imagination to pick up a vegetable peeler, and think "Could I shave with this?":)

    To claim windmills are giants is madness, but to say they might be giants is the wellspring of human imagination...

    It appeals to my "Curious" (being generous to myself) mind and I will have to give it a go, even tho I have several u=hundered different blades,
