I'm new to traditional wet shaving (only a few weeks) and felt I should introduce myself.

I own two razors, a Weishi DE razor (my starter) and I just got this one today:

GEM 1912 Junior. Shaved with it not to long ago and was amazed how close a shave with just downstrokes. I think it might become my primary... wait... does that make me a potential LOSER?

While not shaving I work in IT (Data Center Manager) .

That's what I hear, and it is was a really good shave. I've also put a real good cut in my thumb with the blade already so I know:

1.) They are really really sharp
2.) Don't load it that way again Tongue
