1912 Gem Jr. (Bakelite handle) PAL JR #176/omega 98 knot Omega SS WH Gillette cool wave AS
Nice quick shave before work.
1913 ER lather catcher Treet Barbasol goo WH Lilac Vegital
Goo works you know. Not near as fun a shave as using a brush but it does get the job done. Not long ago I would say I would never use goo. But just to show it's technique that counts the most I will use it now and then.

A quick catch on SOTD, as out early/ back late yesterday, and off out again today.Had a nice Shave with one of the Last Modern Gem using SE razors before the Advent of the New S/S SE razors,
With a Fresh Blade there is no problem getting a nice smooth and satisfyingly close all round Shave. With a good Barbershop Lather a light touch and no pressure, I find it to be one of my Favourite Vintage SE Razors.
Nivea Men Face Wash De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap Jayaruh #2 Gem 1911 Lather Catcher CVS SE CWR/Alum Bloc Thayer's Lemon WH Lucky Tiger
The De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #2 badger brush. I did two passes with the Gem 1911 Lather Catcher with a CVS blade, and I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse and alum block, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Lucky Tiger AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
Sunday 9th July Cadman Custom OSP Lemon & Cedarwood Radio 1912 GEM SSC #7 Alum Wash Selin Lemon Cologne Lacura Body Moisturiser Returning to my beloved SE's produced a magnificent result with my Radio 1912. And the blade has more shaves in its life. Happy days!
Unsinger had a very nice shave with simple little guy. A SE spines Gem worked fine. It is a bit shorter than the proprietary blade. But the simple slider held it firm. It only took a few strokes to find the angle. If you happen across one in the future. Do not hesitate to pick it up. Interesting little razor.
Stirling Syn. 26mm OSP Bay Rum Schick E2 Schick Proline Type B,AC blade. [ 2 ] Alum Rub/Rinse off Bay Rum A/S Splash
The use of this AC blade in the E2 makes it seem more forgiving. It certainly does not make it a mild shaver,and there is lots of blade feel to make you aware to use a light touch with care. This care was rewarded with perhaps one of those close all round shaves that occurs every now and then.
