I was pretty bored so I figured I'd throw some of my razors (without blades) onto my wife's scale to see what they're weighing in it.  this thread might be totally useless, but I thought it'd be cool to see the various fluctuations of razor weights in the market.

Interesting! I'm really surprised that the Revere Injector is only 60g.

All of those injectors!  It makes me feel a little guilty for using a DE this morning. Confused

No problem. I might add to it as time allows.

Yeah, it is 1oz heavier than the other injectors in the list though.

I have like 6-8 more injectors in my shaving drawer that I'll have to throw on the scale when time allows for it. my guess is that my type g8 might be the heaviest from what I have left of the injectors.

This proves good razors don't have to be heavy.
