    Cold Water Wash
    Tabac Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #327
    J.A. Henckels Rapide
    CVS CS SE
    CWR
    Tabac AS

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Tabac Shaving Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #327 brush. I did two passes with the Henckels razor with a CVS CS SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Took my GEM Feather weight out for a test drive and all went well and knocked off a CCS>Bbs and that's all a person can ask for first use. It seems every time I use a milder version of the Gem razors the handle seems awkward and then I settle in for some great shaves. (Like this razor for breaking in a new blade:happy088:)

    Razor:
    Gem Feather weight 1 OZ (31 grams) [​IMG]
    Blade: GEM Personna SS PTFE (1)
    Soap : Colonel Conk Bayrum
    Pre Shave: Warm wet towel + Aloe Vera Gel
    Post Shave: Alum + cold water rinse ( testing the shave quality= excellent)
    Post Shave: Proraso red sandlewood + Nivea balm

    The GEM Feather Weight is the same weight (1 oz) as my Schick E2 and the Schick G series injector razors, it more than likely was introduced to compete and satisfy content GEM owners from wondering over to Schick products IMO.

    Gem Damaskeene razor
    Gem Stainless blade
    Vie-Long Silver Tip brush
    Gillette Pure SC
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Daxton A/S

    Back to using the Pure SC and another very nice lather was had. This stuff works well. The Damaskeene is very mild and easy on the face but still gives a good shave. All is well. Now go enjoy your day folks

    Gem Contour I (on loan)
    Gem Stainless ptfe IMG_20190117_154703.jpg

    The Contour does struggle with the grey stubble but I imagine it would deal very well with younger whiskers.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    1912 Squat-Head/Gem PTFE. About as aggressive as my other 1912 S-H, marvelous. Soap is awfully nice too.[​IMG]

    Very much.
    The L1 is imo similar to a Pushbutton, the L2 is very smooth and efficient.

    Letter R Fat Friday detour

    Prep: Cold water and Stirling mentholated pre-shave soap
    Blade: GEM PTFE
    Razor: GEM Featherweight
    Brush: Omega 10049 boar
    Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat
    Post: Witch hazel, Fine American Blend aftershave

    Smooth shave with the Featherweight. The S.E.R.F. group on Facebook was holding a Featherweight Friday, so I joined in. Featherweight Fat Friday is pretty good alliteration. Anyway, have a great day!
