    Default My first SE safety, a GEM Junior

    It needs a little cleanup but other than that it's in nice shape. My question is how different is this over my Gillette slim, other than adjustability. Any advise for my first shave with this. Also any advice on blades?

    I have been using a Gem Micromatic for a while as my left arm is in a sling temporarily.
    I find it has a totally different handle angle. A different approach, radically different!
    Try different blade angles. You actually must press in a bit to make them work as I have experienced. The shave is very good with cheap blades from CVS, but I want to get some good, stainless ones. Who has the good stock these days?
    HEY!
    Get over to the Movember Auctions in the BSTand make some bids!
    It's for a great cause!!

    The lighting sucks so consider it 70's razor porn.

    For a DE for the kiddo I highly recommend a Gillette slim adjustable.
