Very well is an understatement! That price is nice too.

Is there a big difference between the GEM and the Ever Ready?

Not really. I have other 1912s that are gem ever ready and star. They all shave a like. Awesome.

Yes. It is my understanding that Gem originally produced the 1912 and then other manufacturers started to. Gem branded ones are the only ones I have seen with the smaller heads. Later Gems started to use the taller head as can be seen on other branded 1912's.

I find the early smaller headed 1912's smoother than the taller versions. I suspect this Gem is a smaller head version but you would need a pic of the back of the head to be certain.

In my humble opinion, the ones marked DAMASKEENE shave smoother that the other 1912 types, but all are good shavers... I do significantly prefer the DAMASKEENEs but that may just be personal preference
