    I have a straight razor that I've never used, the reason is that I need to send it off to get honed and shave ready.

    I have two that I haven't used yet. Both are shaveready, but I just haven't had the feel for a bad shave, which I know I'll get because they both, in their own different ways, are so much more different than my DE's

    Star 1912 Standard SE
    Union Cutlery Co. Expert Barber 400 straight razor

    Some day... some day :)

    Hey tuxx, you never know....That Star could be the best and easiest shave ever....My Star 1912 is an extremely Great shaver and required NO learning curve from my DE's....sooooo, what about it?

    I keep telling myself that... that it will be alright and probably easy to shave with. It's loaded with a blade, so I might as well do something about it soon.

    I've used everything I currently own at least two/three times.

    The rule that applies to knives and firearms in my home also applies to razors.
    If you are going to spend money on it, it shall be used.

    I have 10 or 11 that I haven't used because I haven't been wet shaving long enough to get to them. I will be trying out my new Slim this week at some point.

    I have 3 Haha! 1 gillette tech(got it as a gift) 1 gillette super speed(also a gift) and one schick injector. I had old blades so I tried in anothe schick razor so I didnt use it. I have new blades now but Im concentrating on technique with DE's.

    The other 2 I haven't tried because I got sidetracked with my slim adjustable and my MMOC. But I will use them soon hahaha

    Yep, 2 so far. Bought them as "backups" if I ever need them. Both pre-War, a Goodwill OC and Canadian Tech. Cleaned and ready to use if I ever need them

    New Cadet OC TTO sits unused in my cabinet.

    For December I will try it. I don't wanna confuse my technique at this point.

    I have a bunch that I have not used. I am not avoiding their use....It is just that I can only shave so many times per week. And I don't like using a new razor each shave. So I mix it up with an old favorite, then a new guy, old, new, etc. It can take a while to catch up to new acquisitions.

    Gillette fatboy f4 - I have an e2 that's somewhat in rotation instead

    Gillette ball end tech - dunno, call me weird but I don't like the etched head, would have rather had an engraved head logo

  13. The GEM Feather Weight is a nice razor, deceptive to some as they may think it is cheap. Head is well constructed and the handle has a nice useful design.

    It's a nice little razor, one of my favorite SE is the G-Bar. I've got to bring out the FW and take it for a spin soon.

    Took mine out for a drive after reading this....The F-W is a highly under rated shaver I believe. While maybe not my all time favorite I do think its great! If I ended up having to use it the rest of my life, I could do alot worse, ha,ha...Really does remind me of my favorite Injectors and thats a very Good thing....};^)

    Yep I have like 3 GEM razors that I haven't used yet. Probably because the one I DID use tried to flay me alive. LOL

    You can't judge all GEMs by one anymore than you could compare all Gillettes to any one Gillette....
    Soooo, which 3 GEMS is it that you have and have not tried and which GEM tried to fillet your smiling face?
