Well my last purchase for a little while of GEM razors, Man O man this took some serious cleaning. The previous owner must of used preshave oil and it stuck hard to the surface from over decades of use. It actually preserved the razor very well but being a little fussy I had to clean it up for my desired look of clean. The GEM Clog Pruf is the late 1946-47 Peerless variant model with the 17 nibs safety bar. Tomorrow 's will be 1st shave on this new(used) razor. Have some great GEM shaves!
