Well I guess that I am going to have to join this illustrious group of LOSERs I just started back with SEs. I have a 1912 Ever Ready, 3 Gem Jrs. and an OCMM that I haven't used yet. I am really loving the shaves that I get out of the 1912, the verdict is still out on the Jr. as I had my first shave with it this morning and it was only OK using GEM SS blades.

lol if ralph and spot are BOTOCs mascots, would the LOSER thread have charlie sheen, for his "winning" stance ?
We do not need mascots, because while we may be LOSERS, we are always WINNING, and winners do not need no cutesy cartons or smell goats

johnnie sent me some SE blades a while back, and they are the group buy blades, he told me i should probably give them a cork when i try them,
anyone else use these and go uncorked are they comfortable for you this way, Just wondering if i should give it a shot, or if its not worth trying
I use them as is....always have

Thanks Brian, I think next run ill give it a shot see what kind of difference i find in it for me
I have good luck with the group buy blades as is. No corking. They just work.

I do a little palm or wrist strop. Seems to help that initial tug (applicable only if you feel that initial tug, else don't bother)

Had my first 1912 shave this morning. Very different from the MMOC. The MMOC is much more unforgiving. I think I'll acclimate to SE's with my 1912 before picking up the MMOC again. Lots of bark and bite.
