    First outing here but my second shave using my newly acquired Gem Micromatic SE 1947 Bullet tip. I get on well with Gem blades unlike some who describe them as window paint scrapers.:facepalm:

    The first shave was a tad inefficient, maybe due to poor technique or it's simply a very mild razor. For the second shave I followed @Billyfergie guide on shimming (over at the other place) and wow what a difference. Fabulous shave smooth, efficient and just bloomin lovely.

    To use Billy's words, I'm dolphin smooth and refreshed ..oh la la!:D

    Thanks to Billy for the guide and for the pictures

    Enjoy the weekend Gents

    Sat 29th April

    RazoRock Syn. 22mm
    Tabac soap
    The General [alu.]
    Schick Proline P-20 [ 4 ]
    Alum rub/rinse off
    Tabac A/S Lotion

    For me the original General is a good Razor ,when married up with a heavier handle. The weight of the Brass one is good,but I feel
    the handle needs a bit more grip.
    Whilst I had a good shave with the Hawk yesterday, the shave today felt quicker as the Razor/Blade combo seemed more efficient.
    and the all round finish a bit closer, I enjoyed using the Tabac in the bowl which I finally purchased,having used a stick for some time. A great soap pleased to have got it delivered under £11.

    I love this handle, it's fantastically grippy

    P.S. How long does it take for a Shavemac 3-band D01 knot (25/54) to break in? After four uses I think it's getting scritchier!
