Dialing in my razors and this one has to go - GEM razor blades just don't do it for me, I prefer AC blades for single edges. This one has a few faint scratches and some brassing on the top and a little bit of brassing on the inside. It's still a nice looking razor (I think the light in my bedroom isn't doing it any favors in the photographs - it looks better in person). Twist open works great. I'm including three non-coated GEM blades from Try-A-Blade. $14 shipped CONUS.
