    Personna GEM SS PTFE

    Aqua Velva Iced Blue

    The Eufros Sandalo Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #417 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    The Grosvenor -Mixed
    Lea Classic soap
    ER 1924-Claymore handle
    Gem S/S [ 2 ]
    Lea Classic A/S Lotion

    Missing a Shave is getting more common with me, perhaps a sign of the times. Well todays made up for a rather disappointing one on Sunday, with my usually dependable Streamline. This was my second using this particular ER1924, and perhaps I got the lather a bit thin but I completed the Shave without problems, and the overall finish was what I had hoped for on Sunday - uber close with the skin feeling refreshed.

    Hey all I just wanted to get some of your thoughts on the Ever ready single edge razor. I'm usually a double edge or straight razor guy but I was going through my den and I found a Ever ready single edge and what looks like a barely used blade for it so I figured I'd take it for a spin but I just wanted to get some thoughts on it first. Also it seems like it uses a proprietary single edge blade so if I do decide to keep using it are the blades still readily available?? Thanks in advance for your thoughts everyone!!
