I just bought a Feather Injector Razor, unused with the blank still in it. It comes as a part of a grooming kit and includes a Feather injector with 5 blades. I haven't received it yet, but here are some pics from the gentleman who sold it to me.
Long story short, it arrived about an hour ago, and I immediately opened the box. It was pristine and unused, with the original blank in it. The razor is styled like a Schick L1, but the handle is about an inch shorter, and it's about an inch longer than the handle on my I2. Aha, the Goldilocks zone. It was also very light-weight--noticeably lighter than my I2. The blades are the double ones, like the Twinjector blades.
I immediately prepped my two-day beard and began to shave. I wasn't expecting much, after all, it looks like an L1, but the shave was very mild and one of the smoothest that I can remember--even smoother than the Schick Type F. The first pass was DFS WTG, the second pass was an XTG BBS, and there was not even the sound of whiskers being cut. It felt like I was rubbing an empty razor over my lubricated face. I didn't even need a touch-up. I had one tiny weeper that stopped on its own at the corner of my mouth, but I couldn't find it again, even with my alum block.
Now, everybody who knows me knows that I am Injector-addicted, but I'm totally impressed by this razor/blade combination. I own the whole Schick alphabet, but this Feather truly stands out from the others.
I just wish that they were still available so that everyone could experience them. And I really hope that you can find one, Joe. I know how hard you have looked. Be optimistic, my friend, there are still a few around.

Oh lord, the original blank? The Feather was definitely NOS! You are super lucky and what a tremendous find indeed. Without owning a Feather injector I have a strong suspicion it shaves similarly to my Personna Floating Head which also can take twin injector blades. Thanks for the review Steve!
