Gem Micromatic ClogPruf

Shave of the Day
July 26, 2013
Gem/EverReady Week (2)

•Taylor of Old Bond Street Lavender soap
•Kingsley badger brush
•Gem Micromatic Clogpruf razor
•Gem stainless steel blade
•Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla

I took me several tries before I could shave safely with the Clogpruf. It is a very aggressive and efficient razor.

The TOBS Lavender is among the best in my den, due to its lather, lubrication, and the scent.

The Clubman Classic Vanilla is a warm scent that lasts a long time.

EverReady 1914

Shave of the Day
July 23, 2013
Gem/EverReady Week (2)

•Taylor of Old Bond Street Lavender soap
•Omega boar brush
•EverReady 1914 razor
•Gem stainless steel blade
•Pinaud Clubman aftershave

The Everready 1914 is a sort of mini lather catcher. My razor is a travel set. It gives a close shave, about as aggressive as the 1912. The cap flips open to reveal the blade. The hinge is opposite the blade edge.

The TOBS Lavender is one of my favorite soaps.

Pinaud Clubman is a great way to end a shave and start the day.

Next up, the EverReady 1924
