Here I am pictured after a week of not shaving. Just kidding….this is right after shaving!
I haven’t posted any shaving updates in a while, mainly because I’ve been experimenting with the new (old) Gem G-Bar. If you’ve read my earlier posts you know that I have been mightily impressed by this razor and its authentic blades from Barbiera Italiana. But I’ve been fooled before, liking a razor immensely, only to discover that a few days down the line my face felt like it had been through a meat-grinder. So I thought I’d give it a sustained evaluation before pronouncing myself further.
Yup, this is one great razor (for me….YMMV), providing the closest shaves I’ve ever had and usurping the beloved E.J. Chatsworth for the #1 slot. That good! And if you can get the correct angle (almost perfectly flat against the face), you’ll experience a near straight-razor closeness and intimacy with this mighty little tool. If you can find one on eBay in pristine condition…buy it!
