    I am still very much on a learning curve with this Razor as I find the Shaving angle a bit hard to maintain. Shaves are problem free, but I am not quite there getting the closeness of finish that I like, though not that bad either.However, I still find it a better performer than my King Cobra.

    GEMonday, March23-2020, A few of us decided to use our GEM G-bars today and mine was in storage for sometime(out of site out of mind). On a three pass shave this little razor works well but on a 2 pass is pushing CCS, DFS shave for me. So today was a 3 pass shave and the results were in my sweet spot.

    Razor: Gem G bar - MFG 1953-58
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (7)
    Soap: Razorock "The Dead Sea"
    Brush: Yaqi timberwolf 24 mm - great brush to use!
    Pre-shave : brush wash my entire face with CeraVe hand bar soap + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera Gel on beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 3.
    Post shave : Razorock " The Dead Sea" aftershave with with witch Hazel + Nivea balm.
    Results : CCS,DFS,BBS + minimal irritation + 1 blemish weeper reopened = [​IMG] OK shave in my books!

    Blade: Schick Super Stainless (Holland) (1)
    Brush: JR192
    Soap: Boots

    Had an ultra close 3 pass shave tonight. I did slice off 2 small bumps resulting in blood. Other than that an irritation free BBS. These Dutch blades are incredible.

    Tue 24th March

    Simpson Chubby 1 /Maggards 2band
    Tabac soap
    Occams-Oren , No3 plate
    Feather Proguard [ 3 ]
    Tabac A/S Lotion

    If one gets over its unconventional looks and gives it a try, they will find the Oren to be a rather good Razor. Very easy to load and keep clean, and that odd looking handle really allows one to manoeuvre it very easily. I find that it shaves very smoothly, and the finish one can obtain is quite amazing.
    I get a better close finish along the jawline and around the neck with this than with any other type of Razor that I have used. I can use it as a Daily Razor with no worries about cuts/ irritation arising.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Tabac Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #395 two-band badger
    Supply V2
    Schick Proline
    CWR
    Tabac ASB

    The Tabac Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #395 two-band badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Supply V2 injector razor with a Schick Proline blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    I will be shaving late today but wanted to mention that today is the anniversary of the patent of the Ever-Ready 1914. So I will be using the Wonderful Ever-Ready 1914 AKA Little lather catcher today.

    Who else will join me in celebrating these beautiful razors?

    I got the closest shave in weeks today. This C3 is in my top of the top tier of razors!

    Today I also used my Vintage Old Spice Talcum Powder Tom White ( @twhite ) piffed me!
    I have always loved the after shave but never actually used the talc when using a SE razor.
    Man, I RECOMMEND it!

    After a decent AS Splash...give the face time to dry and talc up! And this vintage OS Talc ROCKS!! Thanks Tom!!

    Wed 25th March

    The Grosvenor [ 404-mixed ]
    Williams Mug soap
    Personna Super S/S SE
    Personna S/S [ 5 ]
    Williams Aqua Velva A/S Lotion

    Back to the Injector rotation using the futuristic looking Personna SE, which takes a bit of getting used to.I find that it works quite well with a Personna blade. Glad I got one some time ago, as the ones I see coming up for sale are a bit pricey.Will keep it in the rotation which I am trying to thin out a bit. Today was good but I am afraid is outshone by recent AC/SE Shaves.
