    Have some great shaves!
  8. Whoa, a straight up BBS!!! Must have been a great shave. I've heard very good things about that handle, and admittedly I haven't tried my GEM Junior yet....I really need to.
  9. First time shave with my Perfecta Lather Catcher. I used a modified GEM SS PTFE blade on it's 11th shave | Valobra Fougère lathered with a Yaqi 26mm Timber Wolf | Finished with Thayers Rose Witch Hazel. 3 passes (WTG, XTG, XTG/ATG) and I had a solid DFS. This razor is not for the faint of heart, but it's a nice shaver. More details and pics here if you're interested: The Association of Lather Catchers: TALC

    WTG: ATT SE1, Feather Pro (2). Coulda stopped there if I was in a hurry, but I had a bowl full of warm lather so I wasn't gonna do that...

    XTG, ATG: Ever-Ready 1914 Little Lather Catcher, PTFE (1). The pleasure of a fresh Gem blade, in a nice vintage razor. A home-shop copper handle gives this setup mass to run smooth.

    Proraso Green, Nivea sensitive skin afterward.

    A nice, uncomplicated shave. Nice and smooth. No drama.
