    I hope you are enjoying Tom's proto type adjustable, I think he has a black textured one also.

    It is fun to shave with. I will be getting the Alumi-TAR next week to try out. Then they will both go back to Tom for tweaking before continuing on the tour.

    GEMonday, Feb3-2020, Just a quick 2 pass shave with a great razor, my true GEM Damaskeene Open comb 1912. Its not aggressive but just mild Mid range with great efficiency to make it a winner in my rotation of razors.

    Razor: GEM Damaskeene open comb-MFG 1912-15 one of the most successful razors ever designed after 1900's. They sold millions of different variants up to 1940's.
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE-(2) another great blade.
    Soap: TOBS Sandal wood. Great masculine scent.
    Brush: Razorock Plissoft- great synthetic brush.
    Pre shave: Brush wash my face with CeraVe hand bar soap + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera Gel on beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 2.
    Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood + witch Hazel + Nivea balm for men.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + minor irritation + no weepers= [​IMG]

    Hello Jim, looking at your photo of Tom's proto type it looks like the middle teeth have a different gab than to the edge ones. It could be just the photo effect?
    Have a great day!

    You are correct in your observation. It is that way just on one side. Gives it a kind of Mountain Man type look.
