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 = OK shave in my books! Have some great shaves!
