We received a shipment from Shield razors earlier this week that includes their new titanium Gem razor as well as a restock of the titanium artist club razors in both a matte finish and a polished finish. Shield Razors has taken the wet shaving world by storm with their highly affordable CNC machined titanium razors. While Titanium razors usually command upwards of $300.00, these are offered at a fraction of that price -$160.00 for their matte finished titanium razors and $180.00 for their polished titanium razors. They even include a stand! 

Titanium is an excellent material for razors for several reasons including lighter weight, non-reactivity, durability and imperviousness to corrosion. There is a reason that titanium is the preferred material for orthopedic procedures.

Both models of Shield Razors are excellent shavers that I would categorize as mid aggressive. While they are efficient shavers, they do not bite and they provide an extremely smooth and comfortable shave. There is a bit of blade feel but just enough to give you the feedback that you need without causing any irritation. 

While I am sometimes described as an Enabler, you will not regret adding one (or both) of these razors to your quiver. It will become a regular member of your rotation and very well may become your favorite razor of all time

Ill see if I can take some pictures tomorrow. Its a three piece razor with a square screw, pins and a blade stop. The result is perfect blade alignment and a secure fit.

The Shield GEM razor is absolutely amazing! For me, it shaves infinitely better than the Sabre level 1 or 2. It may be my favorite shaver.

How aggressive is the Shield GEM?  I tried the Sabre back when it came out & found it too mild for my liking.  I think at that time it was only available in one "level"
