October 2021 Haul

Congratulations. Is that an A2? I have a B and C. I believe they are B1, C1 but I need to recheck the differences in variation design.
I'm waiting on a razor at the other end of the Schick lnjector lineup.

Thanks, I think it's an A1, I don't think there is a designated A2 even though there are variations in the design. This one has a chrome plated head (thinking in places) where most seem to be brass.
Are you waiting on an O? I understand they are hard to come by

An O clone. Good enough for me.

Took a Saturday punt for pennies,
A NOS Schick band Razor with 6 NOS Band carts - Mad or what, i have never seen one of these, although i have used the Techmatic band razor which is OK. The Schick is supposed to be better than the Gillette.

A bit info from an old B&B post.

"when King Gillette started making and selling his razor and blades business was very slow. It occurred to him that selling a razor was a one time affair but selling the blades happened many hundreds of times for each razor. So he started selling his razors at very low prices. Often at a loss. But his blade sales skyrocketed him into a millionaire. Most razor/blade makers followed his wise move. And many continue that practice today.
The Band blades were so good that Schick was losing money. He already had plenty of money making blades and the life expectancy of the Band blades was so extraordinary that it would kill the sales of all his other blades. Hence the premature death of the Band Razor and blades.
The Band was silenced. Last post was played."

another poster added

"The Schick Band is rated by me as one of the best razors I own.
I am currently on Blade #5, Shave 97 and still going strong. Almost all BBS."

Apparently 97 shaves from one cart! Time will tell Huh

Oh! and a Vintage unmentionable fitted with a RR UFO handle.
