I recently picked up a Gem G-Bar - which I read is much loved as Gems are in general so I figured I'd get in on this action. I went to Walgreen's and bought the Gem by Personna stainless blades and proceeded to give myself a pretty rough shave with lot's of weepers and razor burn. This is a sad surprise since I regularly get really smooth shaves from the DE - I guess there's a learning curve to these single edge razors. I'm fairly sure I had angle correct. I'm going at it again today with hopefully better results.
