New Parker Adj. Injector!

Messages

Tried many many injectors from vintage to modern.
Must have bought and sold the Supply about 3 times.

I never managed to get a decent shave out of one.
My favourite AC blade is the Schick Proline, but even the injector version didn't work for me.

I've given up on injectors. Why bother when I can get amazing shaves from the RR Hawk V2 and V3?

I did the same. I had given up until I tried the twin blades from Japan. Wow what a difference. Now the adjustable Schick and the O clone are the razors I use the most. That's only because I'm going through all my other razors to get rid of them. I already got rid of my Pals and I'm working through my DE's even though a lot of them are new. I have gotten over 60 shaves with them and still had plenty of shaves left in them. I do a two pass with clean up. When the blade won't give me a BBS I toss it. I still have the blade with 60 shaves on it waiting for me to go through all those darn DE's I bought.....;):p
Had I not bought three adjustable and o clone, I would definitely give it a go. Still it's tempting at that price seeing I'm in the states.....have to be steady here.... I do not need a new razor.... lol:cool:

OK, 2nd shave with the "Chick" blade and I used Cyril L. Salter tallow (puck) soap. Fellas, I received a perfect DFS after the first WTG pass and just for giggles I did an XTG quasi pass. Sure, if I take a credit card, cotton ball or a small Pekingese dog and rub ATG I can feel the slightest of nubs. But for many, yours truly included, to go after these with fervent ATG passes and/or multiple touch ups = ingrown hair Hell. I have done as such before with other razors and it's impossible to tell the difference by looking at even kissing distance in the mirror. I hate to employ an old maxim, but shaving is beard reduction and not elimination. For people who aren't "chasing the dragon" of BBS this is a superb modern injector razor.

Me also.
I chatted to Robert at Executive shaving. Hopefully stocking in early 2021.
How much was delivery? Lol

Anyone selling it in the UK?

Really like the look of it tbh
Hi Electrif and all. I contacted Super Safety Razors in the US and was told "Right now there are no sellers in the UK of this razor". I too would like to avoid the Duty Tax and Royal Mail ripoff, but I'm encouraged by your chat to Robert at Executive Shaving. Although... Must... Ignore... My... RAD! I'm pretty sure my Schick Adjustable 'M' Type is more than adequate.

Hey Bogeyman... Sorry, I missed your review. I'd high five you if I could! Fellow beard reducer here! I've been tempted to buy this razor as you may already know.

Having spent the better part of almost a year, I've mostly shaved with the Rockwell 6C on R6 with a lot of success i.e. almost DFS, and no ingrown hairs. When I read about the new Parker Adjustable Injector, I 'rediscovered' (at the back of my shave drawer) my Schick Adjustable Injector 'M' Type over a week ago. Previously I used lower settings (ingrown hell), but I opted to use setting 7 due to the higher setting success I had with the Rockwell 6C.

So far, its been a really good shaver. With a good lather, my Schick Adjustable Injector 'M' Type is like a hot knife through butter (thats with a dense, wiry beard, and three or four day growth). Plus I only generally shave one pass (the resultant shave is very comparable to the two passes and a touch-up pass I did before, which IMHO, was intense for my skin), with a mixture of directions as I know my beard map extremely well now, and then a touch-up pass. I'm very close to DFS.

Super Safety Razors also told me the Parker Adjustable Injector is a milder razor than the Schick Adjustable Injector 'M' Type. So this information is enough for me to pass. RAD overkill averted! But I'd still say its certainly worth a look if you dislike the Schick Adjustable Injector 'M' Type.
