    Le Touriste 1920s single edge razor + no name razor

    These machines are not put to work because you are not willing or able to use pliers and a drilling machine, what a shame.

    Le Touriste 1920s single edge razor + no name razor

    normal GEM Blades are 39 mm x 19, the Feather FHS-10 are 39 x 17. maybe you should despine a GEM blade and drill some holes into. Just take the old one as template

    Continuing my SE search

    I am in the vintage section too. I really love my wedgeblade SEs. While I am german I prefer Henckels Rapide and Mulcuto razors. You can load a Rapide with a GEM style blade which will give you very close shaves, BBS guaranteed. You can get about 5 to 8 shaves from one blade. If you are lucky...

    What Soap Do You Consider The Best Value?

    First SE razor?

    I started SE shaving with a Rolls Razor, they are affordable and fun to use. If you get yourself a spare blade you'll have no costs for the next 100 years.:biggrin: Now I have a Mulcuto and two Henckels Rapide too.

    opinions for a dive watch

    The Sinn EZM 3 is far out of the price range and Seiko has some quality issues in the sub 1k market. Things like not right set bezels, twisted dials and the like.

    Thoughts on preshave oils or creams

    I have a very dry skin and use coconut oil as a preshave around 5 minutes before starting to lather my face. It is not improving my shave, but moisturizing my skin, so I have less irritation.
