    I really like the fancy handle. Does the decoration help with gripping?

    Last weekend I found GEM SE blades at the grocery store. It surprised me, especially since they don't stock DEs.

    What is different from a 1912 Ever Ready razor and a Lather Catcher?

    If you have the spine off a Gem blade you can use it on a Feather Single Edge blade (not the narrow type used in Cobras) - they give a superb shave but don't last long. A Gem blade is good for about 4 shaves and you get an incredible sound as it rips through stubble.

    There are many Lather Catcher models, from different companies. That pictured LC - I didn't care for much and included it in a trade (with streamline - the most overhyped of them.all) for a Toyo straight.

    For me a 1912 model is better and with a clipped Astra blade as mentioned above, it is outstanding. I'm now on shave #3 with that blade, on one edge and it's great.

    I too have an Ever Ready razor, how do you clip your DE blades to fit? Thanks for the info!!
