    Every time I use this razor, I'm reminded just how good it is.
    Ditto with the soap.

    There must've be been a glut of candles in the Astra factory because the amount of wax holding the blade to the wrapper was astounding.
    No worries though as the shave was very good.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Good Sunday morning, up early today and thought I had better get the shave going.
    I'm shaving with a GEM SE this morning and it's another great shave.
    Pre-shave : shower & Aloe Vera gel
    Razor: Gem Micromatic open comb
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (6)
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft
    Soap: Taylor of old bond street Sandal wood
    Post shave: Alum + cold water rinse (still testing MMOC for quality of shave= excellent feedback )
    Post shave: Proraso Red sandal wood + witch hazel
    Sunday shave DEC 23-2018 (2).jpg


    The GEM mmoc is a fine mid range razor and will give solid great results with a good technique & along with a NEW Gem PTFE SS blade.
