    Default Not sure what blades to get

    I came acrossed a schick c2 injector razor, it came with a set of blades, but i dont want to use them because they are in their own package. I ordered a set of feather injectors and they are way to long. I didnt want to place another order without checking to see if anyone here knew anything about them.

    Thanks for any help

    I use Ted-Pella injector blades in all my Schick safety razors, since 2005. Wouldn't dream of using any other brand.

    Here's the description from their website:

    Those are the right blades. Thank you. What kind of use do you get out of them. Also do you think there will be a problem with the mechanics of my repeating razo? I cant measure the thickness of my blades.

    Thanks again for all your help

    Go easy on the thanks -- I might get used to it ;-) I'm afraid I can't be of any assistance regarding the "mechanics of [your] repeating razor"; as for the use I get, well, I mostly shave with straight razors, but might turn to a DE or one of my three Schick single-edge razors... in short, I immediately wash-off and dry the razor/blade combo when I'm done shaving, then store it in a dry place -- IIRC, I used to get 5-6 three-pass shaves from a blade. YMMV.

    Smooth shaving!

    Sounds good, i mainly use a straight, but like having options and having everything up to par and ready to go.

    I also think well of the Personna ( that's who makes Pella's blades) injectors, but they may not work in a C2. The really early models of Schick injectors weren't quite the same standards as the later versions, and I'm not 100% certain that they take modern blades ( I know alter but still quite venerable models like the E and G type do, however).

    You could also try the Schick blades (made in China, but quite good, and actually have a better rep than the Personnas), if you prefer, but there's no need to get both until you find out if they work ( they either will both work or both not work.)

    They measure up exept that i cant mesure the thickness. I dont have a micrometer. Ill throw in a set of the schicks on amazon next time i make an order. I have heard mixed reviews on the personna blades

    Does anyone know if you can order them without the injector case? Just loose?
