Schick Injectors

The Schick Injector is a razor with history. The first models were produced 1926, sales in the US stopped 1998, 2003 models were still produced. Of course, different models were produced over this period of time, in that sense longest continuous run probably still goes to the Merkur 37, however, the basic principle, have a razor you shove a narrow single edge disposable blade in, remained the same.
Some history and a nice summing up of models can be found

Today I had my first ever shave with one, and that is an atypical model. Called the Fashion Razor, it came in two variants: cream/gold, and turquoise. I was underwhelmed, but maybe I need more practice. After all, there are those that call this the very best razor ever made.

I would not take the risk. If you have the key with you and blades than I see I high risk that you will lose your blades. If you don’t have it with you, then worst case you loose the razor together with the blade. You won’t have a discussion about the definition of „safety razors“ with the security staff that either wears a beard or only knows cartridge razors and thinks that is a „safety razor“.. e.g I remember a checkin in Berlin when I had to open my wash after the security guy saw a Merkur 34 and asked: „is there a blade in?.. please Open the case„ luckily I was on the trip back an had only one blade with me that I throw away before leaving Berlin.. so I kept the razor and had no further discussion. But obviously this guy knew what a safety razor is... so the rule is: „no loose blades“ (That can be removed from the razor) in hand luggage.. with an injector it’s subject of discussion if the blade can be removed without a key (frankly speaking.. it can, an therefore leve it better home or in the suitcase);)

Thanks for the information @Hellas , I was hoping that this one would be accepted. No need to try, and the cartridge razor will stay in the hand luggage.
It would be a good excuse to buy one, but who needs a excuse to buy shaving gear :)
