    If the other VC razors took Gem blades I'd be a happy chappy.

    Cold Water Wash
    Proraso Green
    Jayaruh #305
    Gem Damaskeene OC
    GEM Blue Star CS SE
    CWR
    Osage Rub

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Proraso Green Shaving Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #305 brush. I did two passes with the Gem Damaskeene OC Safety Razor with a GEM Blue Star CS SE blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
