Hey! A Schick that shaves ...

The keen-eyed amongst you will have notice that this 1912 is stamped with Ever Sharp on the baseplate. Yes, Ever Sharp of Schick fame. But, you're thinking, Ever Sharp made injectors not 1912s. You'd be right - 1912s are made by the American Safety Razor Corporation.

I guess Ever Sharp looked at the 1912 and thought to themselves, "what a fine razor - we should get ASR to make them for us under license" ... and I guess this was the result.

Well, it was a fine shave! Squat head and a curved cap, much akin to the 'Sport' models of the day which I would estimate as the mid-1920s.

Much enjoyed.
