I used a clog pruf this morning and started thinking about something during the shave. Is there a more versatile SE then these razors. I would say the original is at the top of the pile but any of the models count. They can use standard SE blades or injector blades. They can also tackle any growth thrown at them. If it is one day or a week it is gone with no fuss. Add to that how they are built like a tank and you have a solid performing razor that can be had for very little.
Any more thoughts on these?

I am always struck by how smooth and solid-feeling the TTO mechanism is on these razors versus others (thinking specifically of unmentionables). And while I like the later two models just fine, the "original" Micromatic will always be my favorite -- it was my first GEM-style SE razor (my very first SE was a Schick E3).
I didn't know injector blades would fit. I have me a Clog Pruf and some Schick twin blades - a combination that has some favourable reviews on another *cough* forum. One to add to my list.
Correct me if I don't understand exactly, but you aren't referring to using a twin blade in the MMCP are you? I am unsure how exactly that would work unless there was all sorts of sacrilege going on with shims and adapters etc...

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?
Dec 24, 2019 22:11:29 GMT -6
ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
