Asylum Injector Razor
#1
The Asylum AC razor has been on the market for a while, but this injector blade version is brand new.  It has the same styling as its larger sibling and is constructed of 316L steel.  It is not an injector, but a three piece design.  Bullgoose recommend the Schick Proline blades but I loaded a regular Schick blade purchased at my local pharmacy.  Loading was way less fiddly that I thought it would be.  In fact it was so easy that I got it right on the first try.  The fit and finish on the exterior of this razor is excellent.  Inside the top cap there are some grey areas, which may clean off.  Since they are under the hood, they don't bother me.  These are areas that are going to eventually show wear anyway.  The razor comes in a small cardboard box with foam lining and I found no instructions or warranty card.  Three piece razors being what they are, I'm not sure printed intructions are really needed. 
   
This US made razor is on the heavy side compared to most Schick injectors coming in at 99 grams and that was evident during the shave.  I gave myself a three pass shave this morning using TOBS cream and my usual Proraso White pre-shave cream.  The WTG and XTG passes felt good and the weight of the razor wasn't noticeable.  On the ATG, south-north pass the razor felt heavy.  I usually hold the razor between forefingers and thumb and the head felt heavy and unbalanced.  As far as cutting goes, it felt like a Schick against my skin.  Which Schick? That's hard, but maybe between a G and an I.

Glad it worked out for you Dave. I won't do business with Phil anymore. He's gotten to sloppy with quality control and customer service. Again, glad you got a good purchase.

I hadn't heard that. I guess I got lucky then. Those stains on the underside would put some people off and really shouldn't be there on a razor this expensive. There are more choices in the AC razors, but my face isn't that big!
