Wow, you actually went back and fixed it, very cool, I figured you would just let it go.



I did. Your welcome!!

My East-German Golf-71 (which unfortunately doesn't hold its unmentionable blade firmly. Designed by bearded Stalinists I think)


Yes it is. As long as it was built to be a single edge...like the shake sharp.... and only the one blade is exposed I think we can rate it as a SE.

I have some older injector blades that I have yet to try. Maybe I’m missing out?





Mostly I think it is because it is something from the past that is not Not still around. Like vintage soaps. Some say there are certain blades that last longer and what not but I am not sure of all that. Most vintage blades I have tried were unusable. I have had some vintage injector blades that did a good job though,
