Tried the Jones Shake Sharp v1 today with a Bolzano blade and was very pleasantly impressed. The angle is intuitive and ends up slightly steeper than is used with a GEM razor. The combination works quite well and is efficient, smooth and effective! Such a cool razor! :thumbup:

Wonderful shave! :cool:

The GEM Featherweight Deluxe is, in my opinion, the "Gillette Tech" of the GEM SE razor world. Mild and smooth. Medium+ effective. Takes an extra pass but the Featherweight Deluxe still removes my whiskers without any irritation. Really cool GEM razor! :thumbup:
