I just had the most amazing shave I've ever had using a safety razor. The WSP Formula T Bay Rum soap preformed flawlessly as usual but the star of the show was the Gem Jr. Bar Lather Catcher with the NOS Gem stropping blade. It gave an amazing performance. The six days of stubble was removed effortlessly. I'm BBS clean and refreshed. It's hard to believe that a 100+ year old razor and a blade the I have no idea how old it is can give me a shave like this but the crap they sell today just dont cut it.😆. That's technology for ya. Old School Wet Shaving it's the only way to go. 20200823_124521.jpg 20200823_114647.jpg
