Gem JR 1912

  1. Hello all; I have been lurking for about 2months now and decided to post tonight. I used a 1912 Gem Junior tonight. I picked it up for $3.00 last week and cleaned it up. I have been using a Gillette SS red tip and a Gillette Fatboy. It is the closest shave I have ever gotten apart from getting a str8t razor shave from my barber. I was amazed. The technique is a little different, but when you got it at the correct angle it produced a unique sound and feel. I didn't get any razor burn or nicks.
     
  2. Welcome to B&B! There are quite a few fans of the 1912 here on the board. I am definitely one of them. :smile:

  5. Welcome the Gem shaves are awesome
     
  6. Great to have you on board the Gemwagon! They are unassuming little razors, but my oh my, they do deliver. I've decided it's a lot like a barroom conversation revolving around the relative merits of Ginger or Maryanne. Sure, Ginger is flashy, but somehow you just keep coming home to Maryanne, don't you?:001_rolle

    enjoy the ride.
