    Jim99 Gold Water Shaver

    Hello everyone! I’ve been gone from here for quite a few months due to an illness. Fortunately I’m lucky to be here today thanks to my doctors, nurses and God. I’ll be continuing treatment for the foreseeable future, but I remain optimistic of the outcome and so is my doctor.

    However, while lying awake at 2:00am on a hospital bed back in July and not knowing how things might turn out, I was thinking of a statement @gorgo2 made in a post years back…. “You never know how tightly the watch spring is wound”. Since that time, I’ve decided that living a simpler and less cluttered life is the way to go. What does that mean for my shave den? I’ve decided to downsize my razor collection, with some razors PIF’d and some sold.

    This PIF is for a Gem micromatic “clog pruf” that’s in great shape and give fantastic shaves. This razor was given to me by a generous gentleman here on The Shave Den some time back. I will pick a random TSD member using a Microsoft randomizer on November 3rd at 6:00pm EST. The PIF is open to all individuals that have been members for at least 3 months and have 50 or more posts.

    Good luck to all!

    Sorry about the setback. But VERY happy to hear you are on the mend. Great razor PIF. I will pass.

    I have come to the same conclusion. Life is funny that way. I to decided to thin my collection. Your PIF has given me inspiration to do that also.

    GOD bless you!

    I am glad you are on your way to a full recovery. It is a very generous pif, but I am primarily a straight/shavette shaver. I also have enough safety razors. Lol! Stay well!

    Glad to hear you are on an upward path. You are in my prayers. Respectfully not in as I own a Clog Pruf. It is one of my favorite razors, and everyone should have a chance to try one.

    Unfortunately I only found this wonderful place a month ago so I'm to 'young' to play, but I wanted to say that I'm glad to hear that you're on the mend, and I hope the best for your continued recovery! This is a beautiful PIF!

    Glad to hear that you are on the road to recovery. Hope you snap back better than ever. That's a great razor. I hope some more people sign up for your pif. I too am thinning the den. Just piffed a razor today, and I have plenty of Micromatics already.

    Great PIF Jim, though I recently picked up a couple Gem Micromatic razors and enjoy them very much.

    So I'm not in.

    Thank you.
