I bought this at Above the Tie a couple of days ago. To be perfectly honest I was there to buy my birth year Slim and needed to spend a little more to qualify for free shipping. Basically I bought this Ever-Ready without any prior investigating into SE razors mostly because it looked very nice, seemed in good shape and because I knew I wanted to try SE shaving at some point.
Now, having read a few threads with recommendations for first SE razors the 1914 ER never seems to be among the recommendations. Do you guys think I would be okay starting out with this or should I maybe set the 1914 ER aside for now and get a 1912 Gem or something else to ease myself into SE shaving?
