Can you please ID my Gem and provide adviec?
I have been recently trying the open combs, to use as daily shavers. I grabbed a decent New (Red/Black), on eBay and the shaves are fpretty good. I need to adjust technique a bit, but no cuts so far, just some minor rash in small areas.
I found this GEM at a local antique shop and wondered what it actually was. I realize these are "straight" razor blades and it actually came with 2 packs of Treets in it.
Any information on the razor itslef and preferred blades would be greatly appreciated.
Also, what I'm looking for is a DFS every day, without irritation (aren't we all). I always read how open combs are more aggressive, but they have not been for me, although if you hold them incorrectly, I can see how they could be (and not always a bad thing either. I just don't prefer aggressive).
This is the new I'm currently using:
"Honey, when I die, sell my guns for what they're worth and not what I told you I paid for them." [I]You can substitute DE razor, or other hobby items of interest, for guns as needed...[/I]
