Thanks for the info and the subsequent post concerning the GEM timeline. I’ve tried an MMOC and found it just a tad bit harsh. An excellent and extremely efficient shaver it is but, one that for me I could not use on a daily basis. The Clog-Pruf is the best compromise of efficiency and smoothness and allows me to use it on a daily basis if I wanted to. Of course, these are just my experiences with these two. The Contour has just a nice retro-look coolness about it. The all Stainless Steel construction with the black rubber grip on half of the razor just makes it different and stand out imo. The cap closure is rock solid and I find it to be a mild, smooth yet deceptively efficient razor. A 3 pass shave plus some tiny buffing always brings out the baby with the Contour with never an issue with irritation.
