OK guys, I love my Micromatics. They are, for me, the best razors in my collection. I started with a bullet tip and honed my SE technique with open combs before trying out the other offerings GEM has made over the years. I guess I never really gave the others a fair chance. A shave here with a Featherweight, a shave there with a G-bar... So I've decided to give the much loved 1912 model a full week of shaves to possibly "re-learn" some technique. Right now they just fall a little short of the Micromatics. Always a little too much blood, never quite BBS, but there must be something good about these razors, right?
I'll start the journey in the morning with a Damaskeene 1912 and a new Ted Pella blade. I'll keep you updated... unless the shaves start going too good, I might keep that to myself
