    Razor: Personna Flexhead
    Blade: Twinjector (12)
    Pre Shave: Homemade
    Brush: VDH Badger
    Lather: Proraso Green
    AS: Brut Splash On

    After 12 shaves with this combo, I`m still getting the same near perfect shave, 2 passes, WTG/ATG with clean ups between passes. I`ll have to change up (if I can), or get bored with the same thing every day. I feel like I`m getting in a rut, but I really do love these great shaves. Can I guy become too satisfied?
    Well, I`ll just say this Happy Camper is wishing for great shaves to all and God Bless.

    Gem Flying Wing (Bullet Tip) Razor
    Gem Reversible Blade #2
    Frank Shaving Badger Brush
    Dirty Deeds Bay Rum & Lime Soap
    Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    Pinaud Clubman After Shave

    I don't usually keep track of the number of shaves I get from a blade, but since these Gem Reversibles are numbered 1-4 like some modern blades, I'm just going to see how many I can get from these vintage ones. I went with three full passes and got a pretty smooth BBS shave as two passes with some touch up isn't enough like I get from modern DE blades.

    Great shave today. No nicks, no irritation, super smooth. Another victory for the Superspeed and BiC Chrome-Platinum. It leaps over sensitive skin and drives through the hair. How does it do it? I don't know. I haven't figured that out yet. This combo is making it look easy.

    My neck was itching, just reading your post. The thought of using a cartridge razor gives me flashbacks, to the "Bad Old Days" of cart shaving. I've been known to smuggle DE blades on cruises, in my bag, and the wife's bags, just in case one bag gets found out. On planes, I just toss them in the carry on bags.

    OK, secrets revealed. I’ve got extra blades stashed at the hotels I know I will be coming back to. Taped to the back of picture in a hallway, etc. :rofl:

    Sadly this was not a hotel I’ve been to before so I had no backup. :(

    I've seen some people mail themself a little shaving package, prior to leaving, so it will be waiting for them. The ask the hotel to hold it for them, upon arrival.

    Hey Friends,

    here is my Sunday Morning Shave:

    Razor: GEM Micromatic Bullet Tip / Blade: GEM Stainless / Soap: Meißner Tremonia Himalyan Heights / Brush: Markus Herber / Aftershave: 4711 Portugal Skin Milk

    I´ve not used this Bullet Tip for a long time, but today i wanted to shave with it. It was fantastic. Gentle and smooth, so i´m nearly like a Dolphin in 3-passes. Lovely!!!

    Enjoy your shaves, have a great time and take care.
