Decent first shave with a newly acquired Gem. Much better than my MMOC but I used a different blade so perhaps the first blade was a dud. Couple small weepers but it’s a new razor for me so par I suppose. Nice sharp blade got it done with a fairly shallow angle. A nice addition to the “den”

G3 GEM Junior Bakelite set / GEM PTFE (3) / Sandalwood soap sample in the first OS Mug / English made ER Boar / Pinaud Clubman -- Considered a SR shave, but didn't feel I had the time and decided to go with an easy, predictable 1912 shave -- I normally like the squat head 1912s, but the bakelite handle balances out the taller 1912 head very well.
