  Here we have a vintage and highly collectible Schick B1 Magazine Repeating 
Razor.  This razor has a Square milled handle.  A square silver plated body 
with fine milled finish, swivelling head with bar guard, and pull knob on 
bottom.  The razor is bright and shiny, a very nice razor in Excellent 
condition.  The Silver B-1 model came in a leather snap fastened case.  The 
case that comes with this razor is original and has a bit of vintage ware. 
The razors magazine holds 20 single edge blades.  Included with this great 
razor and case is a full unopened NOS box of blades from World War II.

  The predecessor to the Schick injector razor, the Schick Magazine repeater 
had the blades loaded in a magazine in the handle.  To load a new blade, 
just pull back the magazine and push.  It will grab a fresh blade from 
inside the handle and push out the used one in a quick easy motion. Below 
there is a brief history, for more information on this razor, please read it.
As always please take a good look at the pictures as they are part of the

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you 
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be 
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item 
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description.  All sales final.

A BRIEF HISTORY:
  In 1921, Colonel Schick invented a new type of safety razor - the Magazine 
Repeating Razor. Inspired by the army repeating rifle, it had replacement 
blades stored in a clip in the handle ready to be fed into shaving 
position by pivoting the head and stroking a built in lever, without the 
chore and danger of handling a sharp blade. Production of this innovative 
razor started in Jersey City in 1926.
These magazine repeating razors were produced in three models between 1926 
and about 1945, and were the forerunners to the famous Schick Injector Razor,
still made today.  

  This is one of the longest production runs for any model of safety razor, 
but likely at an end.  It seems now that the current owners of the Schick 
name, Pfizer Warner-Lambert, are not selling the Injector Razor in stores in 
North America, although they still sell them in Japan, and over the internet. 

  Over the years the Schick Injector Razor has been made by at least four 
different parent companies. The Original Schick Repeating Razors were made 
for the Magazine Repeating Razor Company by the American Chain and Cable 
Company in 1926.  When Col. Schick decided to follow the dry shave road in 
1928, he sold his interest in the Magazine Repeating Razor Company to 
American Chain and Cable, who continued to make and develop the razor until 
1945. Although the razor we now know as the Schick Injector Razor was not 
produced until 1935, well after Col. Schick sold the company, one of the key
patents was taken out by him in 1931, that being for the separate injector 
magazine with plug in key.

  In 1946, the Eversharp Co. bought out the rights to the razor, although 
the Magazine Repeating Razor Company continued to manufacture the razor 
until about 1950.  Eversharp seemed to want to rename the Schick Injector 
Razor, perhaps because of confusion with the by then successful Schick Dry 
Shaver.  Over the next few years, the name in advertising and on packaging 
changed to reflect their ownership. The name became Eversharp Schick 
Injector Razor, with the 'Schick Injector' part getting smaller and printed 
in a different font and colour that emphasized the phrase "Eversharp Razor". 
In fact, the ladies Fashion razor and its cheaper cousin, the Deb, were both 
marketed with only the Eversharp name on the razor, although the packaging 
still referred to Eversharp-Schick.
