Williams Wednesday

Wednesday April 14, 2021
Razor: Gem Junior Bar
Blade: Gem Carbon Steel (1)
Brush: MrEE LE
Soap: Vintage Williams
AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
AS 2: Vintage Williams Aqua Velva
Fragrance: TBD


Relaxing shave this morning with some amazing lather from the Vintage Williams soap. Swiped it off with the new to me Gem Junior Bar and a Carbon Steel Gem Blade sent by Paul (StubbleDaddy) I've used them before and they are smoother although feel the SS are sharper. Hey, Get off of my Cloud. That's my experience [Image: biggrin.png] This razor has some wear and the blade stops are low but still function. I did get a terrifically smooth shave and I'm ready for coffee, a little Cherry pie and forum perusing before getting my day going. Moving slow with allergies picking up and head out mid morning for a 2nd jab of the Pfizer Vaccine. Have a great day and great shaves !!

Have one of these on the way to me. It has some orginal blades but I think it should take a despined Gem style blade. At least that's my hopes. Anyone have any knowledge of these ? Will post pics when I get home from work.


After a little more googling I found out that yes a despined gem blade for work in it so I can't wait to get my hands on it and take it for a spin.

Hi, by way of introduction, I'm Pete Hendrix and I'm glad to be here.  I love single-edge razors - the vintage GEM style razors and the Blackland Vector.  I love the shave I get from these single-edge razors as well as the extra shaves from the GEM PTFE coated blades.

My favorite GEM style razor is the 1912.  
I’m also an artisan soap maker based in Metro Nashville, TN.  The primary brand is Hendrix Classics & Co. I also make White Star soap and balm.  This brand is less expensive, though high quality with great scents. 

It’s great to be here.  I look forward to getting to know this community.

I bought a Damaskeene, it looks interesting but I don't recall seeing much information much about it. What do you know about this razor?

  Schick Injector blades in Canada?
Posted by: joelkerr - 04-04-2021, 01:02 AM - Forum: Razor Blades - Replies (8)

I'm assuming there are other Canadians on this forum, hopefully they can answer this question. 

Where can I get Schick Injector blades in Canada? I don't want to buy from Amazon, which seems to be where a lot of people buy them. 

Thanks,
Joel

RazoRock Eco is the original SHaDE.
This acronym I made for it.

Now there's something new.
I love the idea.

A RazoRock Eco with Injector blade.
And a lot of blade feeling ...

  Twig Razor

Is the Twig Razor by Leaf considered by the forum to be a Single Edge Razor or is it an unmentionable?
