    Starting Monday, I will be using my Schick J Golden 500 sawed off razor with 45 ACP Cartridge end. I had originally thought the handle longer than I liked, so I cut it off to make it the same length as a G. That proved to be too short for my liking. I tried to think of ways to make the handle longer and thought that a 45 ACP cartridge just might do the trick. I got a few from @Redfisher and here is the result. It feels just right.

    Thanks. When I first cut it off, I knew it was a mistake. However, the fix made it just right.

    So glad that you started this thread amigo! I plan to use mainly SEs this month. The Generals, Cobras, Sabre, and Occam's Nano will see increased use, however some DEs will be used on weekends. Have fun everyone!

    A Stirling SEptember

    Prep: Cold water and Stirling mentholated pre-shave soap
    Blade: GEM PTFE
    Razor: GEM G-Bar
    Brush: JR #142 black badger
    Soap: Stirling Piacenza
    Post: Witch hazel, Stirling Piacenza aftershave

    Really enjoy the G-Bar. Smooth shaving. Bright and shiny but with nice heft and weight. It works quite well for me and today was no exception. Clean shave in two passes. Have a great day!

    Razor: Ever-Ready SE w/case 2 Blade Banks and original instructions 1914
    Blade: GEM
    Brush: 30DC w/LS (MS) 2 Band Finest
    Soap: Sterling Cool
    A/S: Sterling Executive Man Balm

    For an old razor this shaves beautifully. I get excellent feed back from the blade, however, it can be a little difficult in tight places. The 30DC brush is fantastic. I'm very happy I installed the LS (MS) 2 Band knot.

    Straight razor focus here; looking to improve my skills removing pesky neck stubble. The Hart Steel 6/8 performed well as always, as I love the extra weight it brings to the party. I may try and use it exclusively until the custom Bismarck arrives later in the month. I’m also experimenting a bit with using my right hand in more areas rather than splitting duties equally between right and left. The neck continues to confound a bit, but I’ll keep hacking away at it.

    what a coincidence this morning I was like hey I haven't shaved with Gem in a while so I put aside the DE razor and left the Micromatic Clogpruf in the bathroom with still wrapped PTFE blade. Didn't even occurred me that is 1st September
