    Used an Old Style today but changed out the ball end handle for a fat handle from one of my Techs and it was a whole different beast; almost enjoyable. It's funny because I love the Techs with a ball end handle as much as those with the fat handle.

    IMG_1143.JPG To kickoff SEptember I used my new GEM MMOC loaded with a PAL blade. My introduction to the SE world was a GEM Featherweight. To be honest, I was underwhelmed. I tried all the blades and not one of 'em jumped out at me. When I saw the MMOC at the fleamarket I was like, "Okay that's nice, but...". I picked it up and was immediately impressed. It felt like a razor. So I pulled the trigger and bought it.
    This morning after lathering up some Regiment Shaving's "High Speed" I got after it.
    The first pass was WTG. I kept the head almost flat against my face and the two day growth practically disappeared. The next two passes were pretty anticlimactic. I was careful to not get overconfident and push. I was rewarded with a BBS shave. Overall I'm glad I bought it. Now I'm gonna have to find the blade for it. The test for any blade is how it removes the weekday stubble.
    It's on Gents!

    This razor is a bit aggressive - wish there was a milder blade for it ... ;)

    I know SEptember has barely started, but I am soooo looking forward to OCtober. I haven't shaved with my 1932-40 NEW SC in such a long time, I'm gonna spend the whole month with it...

    It was my first fleamarket find and vintage Gillette.
    Is it OCtober yet?
