    Shave 4
    Today was my first shave with my Gem Lather Catcher. I had to tweak the blade holding mechanism to get it to work correctly, and it now holds the blade securely with no distortion. I started with a Gem Stainless and did one pass with that blade before binning it and inserting a PTFE. The rest of the shave was OK, but that first pass caused a lot of irritation and a couple of weepers. The shave did end up BBS but not AGAIG. I will shave with it again, but I have to let the face heal before I attempt another shave with it.

    Great shave! Five days using the iKon DLC OC I've mastered the angle, pressure needed to achieve a great shave. MdC really is the easiest soap I have to lather.
    Go out and get it!

    I ended up shaving with this OC razor this morning.
    Can anyone guess what razor it is? :)

    Knowing the people here I don't think it will be too hard.

    I really like this beast of a razor. It's very similar to the Barbasol FH razor in size/weight.
