    When the farm was in activity, it was the barn.
    When I bought my slice of farm, I did not know that part was on sale as well, otherwise I'd have chosen that!
    Too late to regret... :)

    Thank you Sir, Tonsorial Williams is the same as the vintage but sold to barbers in rolls of 10. You'll still see a roll pop up once in a Blue Moon. This is my last Tonsorial I have, then on to standard vintage which again is the same with a different stamp in the soaps. I mushed it into a wood bowl.

    GEMonday, Jan 11th 2021. Another great razor from American Safety Razor Corp family of shaving products.

    Razor: Gem Open Comb 1912- MFG 1912-15- excellent razor and this is the razor that really propelled the company into a legendry umbrella of shaving company's IMO, it is not a aggressive OC razor but in the mid range but more on the smooth side IMO.
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (9) excellent blade, very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely & predictable.
    Soap: Razorock Don Marco- what a nice citrus scent, excellent lather qualities. It will cheer up a person when it is -20C outside IMO .
    Brush: Yaqi Chianti's 24mm knot- excellent lather creator, heavenly cloud like soft tips with some backbone for folks who like a gentle scrub IMO.
    Pre shave: wash whole face with Razorock XXX hand cube soap + a dollop of Aloe Vera Gel on cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Pinaud Clubman with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG] excellent shave with my Gem OC 1912 + Gem Coated SS blade.

    Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!

    Fresh blade, good suds and the Twig gave a flawless shave. This razor is no slouch and with a different blade installed, I believe it will make a good razor even better. Going to try a couple of my favorites in the Twig to see if my presumed theory is correct. A wonderful evening and shaves to all....

    Decent razor, efficient but not overly aggressive. Close but no BBS cigar for me.
