SOTD, Took out my Everready 1914 first generation blade stops SE razor and had a wonderful shave. Another great razor if you like audio feed and great results. I like audio feed back and this ER 1914 amplifies and then there are folks who do not like audio and find a little fault in clamping of the blade when they hear it. The razor works well even for over 100 year old design of Perfection.

Razor: Ever ready 1914 1st generation blade stops- MFG 1914-20's
Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (5)
Soap: Italian barber Amici
Brush: Razorock Plissoft
Pre-shave: Brush wash the face with CeraVe hand bar soap+ Dab of Aloe Vera clear gel on beard area.
Post shave: Alum block + witch hazel
Post shave: Italian barber Amici AS with witch hazel+ Nivea balm
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + alum indicated no irritation +no weepers= :biggrin1:
