Definitely keep up posted on your next shave with the Contour because I love anything Gem related.View attachment 976221
I used two newly acquired razors this morning. Unfortunately today's was far from a good shave. I'm confident it is not the razors that are at fault. I believe it was a combination of sub par lather and my last shave although feeling very CCS, leaving my neck a little bumpy, also even though I ended up having time to spare, I felt rushed.
The aspects of the contour I can judge from this shave are the feel of the razor in hand. My overall impression of the razor is positive it looks and feels much better in person than I had expected. And the handle is a very comfortable length. My initial thoughts of the razor when I saw photos of them in for sale posts was negative. To me they looked chintzy. However the metal is thicker than what it appeared in those pictures, and the fit and finish is much better than anticipated. I like the styling of the contour, Its more modern lines contrast drastically with older razors in my collection, which adds more variety. Overall I look forward to giving this razor another test drive, when my skin is in better shape for a fair assessment of its shaving abilities.
