I just got this nice razor from ATT. It’s their modern version of a Gem type razor. Model ATT G1. It’s a real beauty and shaves really nice. First off I have to say putting it together for use is a bit tricky. Once I figured out how to do that all was fine. I used an ordinary Gem stainless steel blade. I hand stropped it a few times. It does give a nice smooth shave. Although similar to the ER-1912 it is different. It feels nice on your face. Maybe it’s the extra weight or the grooves in the head. I’m not sure why but I like it better than the ER-1912. To honest I haven’t use the 1912 in awhile but I don’t remember enjoying it as much as the G1. ATT should have included some sort of directions on assembly. Something like this would have been helpful. 1. Put the little threaded hook thru the base plate with the hook toward the front. 2. Then put the blade in place. 3. Then put the top piece on with the tapered end toward the front. 4. Then screw the handle on. This razor gives such a nice smooth and close shave it’s worth every penny. You can get it with or without a handle. I will be keeping it.
