    Excellent razor! Ride the cap, or just off the cap, and you'll be a happy shaver. Get the GEM stainless blades, they're all I use.

    Did you make that brush?

    Negative. That is JR#161 NY Mets Special Edition made with a wood nub from a Louisville Slugger bat.

    Think I found the right blade for this razor - this combination is wonderfully mild ... ;)

    This is not the right blade for this razor - the combination razor/blade is pretty aggressive ... ;)

    The Gem mmoc was a nimble little cap rider tonight, and I asked a lot out of it. Loaded up with a Pella and completely shaved my sideburns off, did a three pass, trimmed the edges of my hairline and did the back of the neck. It's such an easily maneuvered thing...even did atg under my nose, over my thin mustache. Sorta picked it on purpose...lots of long paths shaved tonight. I'm really glad I ended up with an OC, though it wasn't necessarily on purpose

    Never used an oc before today. Just received this MMOC the other day. I prefer efficient ( some say aggressive) razors. This one is definitely efficient. I'm not putting my straights aside by any means, but this guy can really mow them down :)
