OK... Once again, Sav is reaching another milestone. My 1,000th post. I would have been here sooner but a bunch got cut. Which wasn't a bad thing. I understand why. Here is the deal. I once won a very generous PIF from the YODA of Single Edge razors. Shadows Dad. It totally changed my wet shave experience. I was enjoying DE's and with the general AD disease raging I had acquired over 20 DE razors in a very short time. I developed the habit of gifting razors to Nubees and turn around and buy myself another example of the same razor. Once I saw "the sharp side" I quickly let the remaining DE's go except for 3 that I will hold on to. Then the AD for the SE's began. Right now I have 4 versions of the 1912 GEM/ STAR line. These to me are my best shavers. I also have 1 example of all 3 GEM Micromantic razors. Since most of these razors are readily available I am going to pass on 1 of my 1912's and 1 of my Micromantics. I'll send some blades too.... I am sure that the winner will become a LOSER too. Wetshaving is a gentlemanly activity and as such Honesty is at a premium here. I'm looking for people who have heard the propaganda on SE's and are curious to see what all the fuss is about... SO CURRENT LOSERS NEED NOT REPLY !!!


RULES :
1. This is the most important. These razors must never be sold. If the winner doesn't like them he is required to Pass It Forward. Another Gentlemanly thing.
2. 25 posts
3. Must post" Maybe I am a LOSER and don't even know it."
4. I'll do this one world wide too. It wasn't too bad sending the Fat Boy to goaman in Portugal. I'll swing it again. ( Watch some fella win in Timbuktu)...lol
5. The contest will be drawn by random.org.
6. Contest ends at my 1001st post. (Only 15 away so register quickly).

PRIZES:
1st off is a GEM 1912. It is brass and user grade. I really enjoy my shaves with this razor. She isn't the prettiest girl on the block but she sure kisses good...lol
2nd is a GEM Micromantic CLOG PRUF. Micromantic's have a TTO mechanism much like DE's. This razor I found in an antique store and paid a little too much for it. It gives great shaves. This gal is in good shape. She has a nice body. She just has a scar on her face... i.e.. The only issue is a scratch on the lid...
3rd I'll send a few blades to get you started...

My hope here is to give someone the same opportunity to find out the Single Edge experience is far superior to the sea of DE propaganda... You may find out that you are a LOSER !!!! Good Luck everyone....

Thanks for allowing me to participate and setting up this cool PIF. I have actually never used an SE razor of any kind.

Maybe I am a LOSER and don't even know it?

The thing is, I wanted to be one - I do own a vintage Ever-Ready with a bit of history behind it... but it gives a horrid shave. Perhaps it is just me who can't handle it, perhaps I found the reason why Finn (the original owner, friend of the family, war-hero and so on) only ever unwrapped one of the ten blades it came with - there is a noticeable bow to the comb that could explain a thing or two.

Long story short; would love to give SE a go with a razor that is known to be good.

Maybe I am a LOSER and don't even know it, is that because I've never tried a SE

... unless injectors count as SE. I am enjoying my Injector experience, though I'm not sure that they will ever replace my DE's. If however, Injectors disqualifies me, that's okay.

Thanks for the opportunity Sav.

Please respond so your post count can be jacked up a little!

Many of your discussions have me wanting to try a SE razor. Thank you for putting on another great PIF.
