I never really use them and sold off all of my Pella blades, Micromatic's and a couple of lather catchers.
These two are the final survivors only because they were in a drawer and I forgot about them, one is GEM the other ER..in all likelihood I'll sell or PIF them in the future.

Brian - where can we find some awesome razor stands like you've found/made there? It almost looks like it could be from a Lowe's / Home Depot, etc...

Thanks in advance!

Brian I made them from some plastic rod I had laying around.

Find the details in this thread. Cursor way down.

I stole the idea from the Feather SS razor stand. Feathers is far nicer IMO, but I can't work SS. I did consider using aluminum rod, which I can work, but in the end I used what I had. Just google plastic rod if you don't have any laying around. For most plastics, all that's required is wood working tools.

I have another idea for denser yet easier to access storage, and winter is approaching. Maybe I'll explore it in a few months. If I do and it works I will share it.

All of the above are basically the same razor (Treet' have a slightly different head). Handle variations intrique me.
[img][Image: 002-2.jpg][/img]
In back are GEM and Ever-Ready lather catchers. In front, from left, open comb Gem-de-Lux, open comb Damaskeene, ER 1914, ER 1912 UK model, 1912, and Damaskeene.

These are my later GEM's. I only keep what I like using. I had an OCMM, and an ER Streamline, but did not like either.
I am looking for a Star Super Six. PM me if you are willing to part with one.

nice razors, Brian.

I want to get a lather catcher that uses modern SE blades, but unfortunately I was outbid on one from ebay and don't see them pop up for sale much on the B/S/T.

Andrew, an ER '06 and a Kampfe '13 or Hero will take modern blades. Maybe others will also.

Soon I'll have an ER'06 back in hand that I loan out. If you'd like to try one before buying that can be arranged. PM me if interested. Presently it's in Colorado.

FWIW, the ER is brass under the plating and the blade exposure can be adjusted easily. The Kampfe/Hero is steel and if adjustable would be far more difficult to adjust. BTW, the ER is not adjustable as in "adjustable razor"; it's adjusted semi-permanently and requires some time to accomplish. But it isn't difficult if one is minimally mechanically inclined.

The Kampfe/Hero IMO is like shaving with a blade glued onto a popsicle stick, the ER '06 is far less aggressive and easier to use, but it's still quite aggressive and has a unique feel to it.

The 1901 GEM Junior I have uses modern SE blades. The "lather catchers" are pretty.

wow, lot's of beautiful SEs!

so which SE Open Comb would be a good choice if

I want something about as efficient a shave as a FaTip grande OC, but closer to the smoothness of my GEM SE Black-handle push-button?

Valet AutoStrop VC1. Almost as efficient as the OCMM, but smoother.
