    Edwin Jagger L STF V2 - RazoRock The Dead Sea Soap - GEM Contour/GEM SS - The Dead Sea AS

    The Contour is a mild razor so I needed 3 passes and a little buffing on the neck area.
    I just love the scent of this Splash/Soap combination
    3 and a bit passes for a lovely finish [​IMG]

    Thursday's Shave
    Cold Water Rinse
    Cremo Vanilla Orchid Shave Stick
    Jayaruh #395 2-band Badger
    Eversharp-Schick G
    Schick Proline
    Lucky Tiger AS

    The Cremo Vanilla Orchid Shave Stick Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #395 2-band badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Eversharp-Schick G injector razor with a Schick Proline blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed... It was a good shave, but the Cremo does not agree with my skin. It must go.

    Devil's Advocate here, apologies in advance. What so good about this razor, if you have to change the baseplate and shim the blade to get a great shave?

    Just to try something different. I misspoke about the cap. It is a base that I will switch.

    The razor is fantastic as is. I liked it so much I ordered one for myself last night.

    Razor: Gem Junior 1912 parade with taper baton handle-Mfg 1943, excellent razor and l like the handle very much.
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (5) excellent blade.
    Soap: Razorock The Dead Sea - excellent scent with great lather qualities, I have to load the brush a little more to get that excellent creamy lather.
    Brush: Yaqi Rainbow brown whiskers 26mm synthetic - excellent brush for creating lather with soft tips.
    Pre-shave: Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock The Dead Sea aftershave with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.

    Razorock BBS/Kai (3), Ethos Succes. This is a very capable razor. Goosed a little with the Kai blade's additional exposure and one shim this was efficient enough to get to BBS without a pick up pass from my Leaf or Enders. That's really good. The unusual curve of the head does work- you can hear the blade bend. Where I don't have much affection for the Mambas this one I will reach for.[​IMG]

    Nice shot. I'm from Texas. For years, when I saw a price tag with the "TX" on it, I'd assumed it was referring to my state.
