Shaver: Gem Feather Weight
Blade: American Safety Razor (CVS)
Cream: Arko Adventure
Brush: Burma Shave
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Aqua Velva Ice Sport and PAA Malbolge beard oil.
Sunday Morning budget shaving with a Gem Feather Weight ... this Gem single edge razor (SE) I picked up for $8.00, Surrey shaving mug (thrift store find) 99 cents, Burma Shave brush was at the local grocery store for $4.19, SE blades at CVS for $4.99, Aqua Velva Ice Sport for $3.49 and Arko Adventure $4.99. The Gem razor was by the way of Etsy which in my opinion is a good source for vintage razor as well as EBay and Buy, Sell, Trade groups on Face Book and G+. A fellow wet shaver, most likely will sell you a used item at a reasonable price. So ... how was the shave? My den has grown but I still enjoy these inexpensive products. I like the shave I get with my Gem razors. I have the Gem Feather Weight, Gem Juniors, Gem Micromatics as well as the Star and Ever Ready cousins. Tomorrow's shave will be with a Schick Injector and later in the week I will have a Gem Junior and a Gem Micromatic shave as examples of budget shaving and of course a double edge safety razor shave. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
