    The Wednesday edition of the mini-Lund set was the obvious call for today’s shave. Lovely shave, nothing but face-rubbing goodness :happy036:

    Gem Clog Pruf mk2, gem stainless ptfe blade, shave 2
    Still one of the best milder unknown razors ever made. Most people don't even know that there are multiple iterations of the Clog Pruf let alone they shave differently. End result a BBS finish was achieved.

    It is a really good razor and shame Gem didn't stick with the design longer than they did. This iteration came onto market about Christmas time of 1945 and lasted 1 year until it was succeeded by the flying wing with the guiding eye in 1947.

    If anyone who reads this decides they are in the market for one this is how to identify it from the mk1.
    The mk1 is on the left and mk2 on the right.

    The mk1 only came in chrome and the mk2 in what is called gold colored in marketing speak aka unplated brass. The other key difference is the teeth on the guards, the mk1 has less teeth than a mk2 as can be seen in this picture.
