Here’s another terrific SE razor in the Gem Micromatic series! The Gem Micromatic Bullet Tip Single Edge Safety Razor! I acquired this razor from an Ebay seller at a “Buy It Now” price. And, happily and surprisingly, it turns out to be in much better condition than the photos had shown.

This is just a quick look at an after shave product I picked up at the local Dollar General. It’s Gillette Sensitive Skin After Shave Gel.

I purchased this for about four dollars. And, I must say, it’s rather good. It has a nice clean scent which doesn’t overwhelm or linger too long.

Plus, it can be found at any of the local big box stores or larger pharmacies.

If you prefer, you can order it online and get an even better deal by buying in quantities of two or more: http://amzn.to/2t4GEx0

In this video, I take a look at the Vintage Gem Micromatic Open Comb Safety Razor. The Gem Micromatic Open Comb gives a very close shave. The American Safety Razor Company marketed these razors as giving a similar shave to that of a barber’s straight razor shave (without the barber or straight razor).

Here’s an an ad from a 1934 issue of “Popular Science” which shows how the company marketed the razor: https://goo.gl/Dq1szq

These razors can be found for five or ten dollars at antique stores, yard sales, second hand stores, etc. To get the best shave with the Gem Micormatic Open Comb razor, I recommend Gem Personna Single Edge Stainless Steel Blades with Used Blade Vault: http://amzn.to/2t20BES

You’ll need a good lather when using any DE or SE razor. Proraso (Green) Shaving Soap in a Bowl is wonderful AND affordable: http://amzn.to/2tV4nCG

The Gem Micromatic razor is a wonderful razor that gives smooth, close comfortable shaves!

These Single Edge Safety Razors were very popular back in the 1930s and 1940s. And they’re gaining in popularity once more.

Gem Safety Razors can be found on Ebay, in antique shops, and at secondhand stores. (Check flea markets and estate sales, as well).

The good news is, they are plentiful and very reasonably priced. I’ve found them for five and six dollars!

However, as their popularity grows, expect the prices to start to increase. I’m told that prices for these razors were even lower five years ago!

They take SE (Single Edge) razor blades.

I recommend using Gem SE blades by Personna: http://amzn.to/2sRVZ82
