    Razor: Gem Junior bar- MFG 1907-11, excellent milder mid range, very easy to use with modern Gem Coated blades. Very happy to go back in time and feel what it was like with a time machine(tool) and return instantly back to modern times[​IMG].
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE(9) excellent blade, very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely, and predictable.
    Brush: Yaqi Artic sky 24mm - excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, good scrub & great lather painting.
    Soap: Razorock Don Marco- nice bright citrus scent, excellent lather qualities + good post shave feel.
    Pre shave : Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on my cleaned beard surface.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.-
    Post shave: Razorock blue barber with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.(- 26C, 34 humidity reading)
    Results: CCS,DFS,BbS + no irritation + no weepers =[​IMG]Excellent shave with my Gem Jr bar with a coated Gem blade.

    Shave of the Week Starting 15 Feb 2021

    Pearl Flexi razor
    Glatz blade
    Fine Accoutrements "Classic" brush
    Pearlman Shavers Spirit SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Assorted A/S

    Decided to use the Flexi razor again this week. It's a good shaver for me. I also decided to use the Glatz blade as well. These came with my original Flexi and I've used them in my Gillette Slim with good results. Today, the Flexi/Glatz pairing worked well and my face is happy with the performance of them together. The Pearlman SS came with the replacement Flexi. It's a small 50gr container and kinda difficult to load the brush but it performed very well. Built a fine lather easily and provided good protection during the shave. Don't care for the scent but, again, the performance is good. So, all is well. Now go enjoy your day folks.

    Starting the week off right with Saponificio Varesino 70th soap and AS. Easily my favorite soap AS combo right now. I used the King C Gillette razor and a custom JR 191 brush with a tuxedo knot. [​IMG]

    Thank you, Sergio. Apparently, there's a new manufacture starting up. I know nothing about it.
