Brother six, this is the blade you want, the only blade. GEM - Stainless Steel PTFE Coated - $0.50 each - Double Edge Razor Blade@Twelvefret,
OK. I shaved today using my GEM "Featherweight" Razor. The Razor felt nice in the hand and like it's namesake, is Feather weight/agile handling/smooth. That being said, I must confess that I did NOT have a good shave. I'm beginning to suspect the BLADES I'm using might be the issue rather than the Razor(s). For the most part, I had a rather UN-comfortable shave with too much friction/scraping/drag. The Razor did shave very close to the Skin. However, it was about an hour or two later that I looked more closely in my (CAR) Mirror and was shocked to see how much beard was remaining on/under my Chin. This rather SHOCKED & surprised me as I shaved over this Chin area multiple times. I've never experience this situation with ANY other Razor. I'm using these BLADES :
Gem Super Stainless Steel Single Edge Blades 10 Each
Perhaps I used this ONE Blade too long a time. I will now (MUST) try Shaving again with the Featherweight but this time (next time) using a BRAND NEW Blade!
Surely you've seen this.
Note the instructions are not then same, the angles differ. Use the instructions on the right for the MMOC. I've not tried the one on the left, but use all of my GEM collection the same as the MMOC and the BMMOC.
For me the first generation and subsequent open comb sans the two bumps are the more efficient razor per stroke I possess in my safety razor collection. I am sure it will be the same with you once you get a decent blade and follow the GEM instructions.
