You're in charge of all my photography from now on! Nice setup.
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.
It looks like a torture device.

Razor: iKon DLC OC
Brush: WD Silvertip

Aftershave: Fine American Blend. Axe Shield Sensitive
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.
looks like a Merkur
Nope. Guess again
Gillette new sc
with a different handle maybe?
idk, but it's a nice looking razor
Kinda looks like the ikon comb, but the angled cap looks different
NEW DE Luxe?
Nope....but very close
NEW Big Boy.
NEW BigBoy Deluxe Chromium.
I really like this beast of a razor. It's very similar to the Barbasol FH razor in size/weight.
I thought it might have been a Big Fellow so I did a search to make sure. A picture of Big Boy came up in the results and bingo , lol.
