Hello

So I purchased a second Schick injector razor, I already have a Schick Injector Type J, I bought a Type L1, with my current Injector I usually use Schick proline b-20 blades that i insert in to my older Schick cartridges.

So with my recent purchase I got some NOS Diplomat blades that come in a plastic cartridge.

Says blades are made in the USA, the case in Germany and has Sheffield on the box too :LOL:

So has anybody tried these blades? Any information available on them? What's your experience like with them? I tried searching the net to no avail.

Interesting find.
The patent number on the all-plastic case is the US version of this Swiss patent:
The inventor, Ernst Graf De Longuyon, had two more injector tricks up his sleeve:
The Supramat all-plastic injector razor: https://razors.click/patents/US3311975/ (rarely seen)
and an electric injector razor: https://razors.click/patents/DE1794636/ (probably never made)
He lived in Munich, Germany but most of his patents were assigned to the Swiss Climar AG company.

All these inventions are from the mid-60s, so whatever the blades are, they are probably not very good.
As they are rare, I'd keep them in the magazine. It's probably worth more than the razor :)

Very informative thank you.
