    GEMonday, March23-2020, A few of us decided to use our GEM G-bars today and mine was in storage for sometime(out of site out of mind). On a three pass shave this little razor works well but on a 2 pass is pushing CCS, DFS shave for me. So today was a 3 pass shave and the results were in my sweet spot.

    Razor: Gem G bar - MFG 1953-58
    Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (7)
    Soap: Razorock "The Dead Sea"
    Brush: Yaqi timberwolf 24 mm - great brush to use!
    Pre-shave : brush wash my entire face with CeraVe hand bar soap + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera Gel on beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 3.
    Post shave : Razorock " The Dead Sea" aftershave with with witch Hazel + Nivea balm.
    Results : CCS,DFS,BBS + minimal irritation + 1 blemish weeper reopened = [​IMG] OK shave in my books!

    Happy Monday and sincerely wherever you are I hope you and yours are safe. The Timeless Bronze OC.78 is a very pretty razor but it is a killer of stubble. Since I had a few days growth I grabbed it today. What a flamethrower of a razor. Loaded up with a Personna Lab Blue.

    Another shave and another CBL soap...hang on tight, I got lots! Today we went with Outlaw! A perfect match to Stetson! Oh yeah! Which of course I happen to have a bottle of.

    Lovely two pass shave. No need for more than that with this little beasty of a razor. Smooth as silk. Stetson AS and a spritz of Bvlgari Man. Outlaw indeed, best smelling one North of the Pecos....waaaaaaaay North!

    Since everyone is focusing on China and what just came out, I decided to do a Chinese Razor shave. I had a very smooth, 2 pass shave, that left me near BBS. No touch-ups. Very nice shave, and good steel, from China.

    Razor- Chinese "ZY Pro Extra Sharp 430+"
    Brush- C-MON A-4. Original Boar Knot.
    Soap- AOS "OUD" cream.
    Aftershave- Hill Country Arctic Blue

    A great first shave with the Taiga. Set it on 4 with the fresh Feather and smooth effortless passes (3). The razor has good heft but, is very nicely balanced though I feel as the weight is biased slightly towards the head. Great grip on the handle and smooth movement from the dial adjuster. Just a killer adjustable that surpassed my expectations on its first go. Looking forward to getting a full weeks worth of shaves in especially with the OC plate. A good evening and shaves to all...
