After taking a hiatus from GEM razors, due to getting into Injectors, I decided to get back into them, and purchase a Contour II. What can I say? I used it tonight, for the first time, and I got such a great shave. I used a PTFE blade and Proraso Sandelwood soap and got a DFS shave, and no cuts. The Contour II is such a comfortable, yet efficient razor, probably my favorite GEM razor!
