I was at some local antique shops and happen to find this Gem Junior. This will be my first Gem razor and can't wait to give it a try.

The Gem JR is a favorite razor of mine. A Goldilocks razor; it's just right.

I lust after your handle.

Enjoy it!

That's a beauty. I've never seen a handle like that on a Jr but I haven't seen a great amount of them.

Thanks for the kind comments.
It looks like it has never been used.

Great find! Just like my Jr, except for mine being a bit dinged up (though still pretty good for a razor of its age), vs yours looking like it is NOS.

very nice razor, Paw.

I like that handle far more than the handle on the junior my friend lent me to try. the one I have has that really fat black handle.

Haven't tried yet but soon. I had to order some blades.

It does have 5 vintage blades but didn't want to use them.

I did three passes and a follow up with some touch ups. The gem jr. has become one my favorite razors, defiantly a keeper.

The razor gave me a BBS Shocked
