Yes, sorry.
Was from Frugal Shave on Etsy maybe?

On the Etsy site the vendor Frugal Shave clearly write It's not his design.
But his item comes with two design, so two different shim types.

It is important to note that these are not my designs and I do not yet have one of the razors to test them.
I only agreed to add these to my shop after multiple requests.
There are 2 versions of adapters for Gem style blade with the spine removed.
This to fit into old school razors that use the old wedge blades.
When you order this listing you will get two of each type.

Which is the difference, over aesthetics?
Maybe the original from The_Boxhead is for classic GEM blade with spine ...

The design by "the_boxhead" is for GEM blades with the spine on.
The design from Etsy with the three stars is for GEM blades with the spine removed.
That design is actually by me. Credit where credit is due Smile
I have no problem with anyone selling them on Etsy or elsewhere. The license does allow that.
(Unlike the license for the TNNSER 3D for example, which does not permit commercial use)

Lather Catcher Sunday's Shave
[Image: cws.png]

Cold Water Rinse
TSD Iced Lime
Tom's B400 Two-band Badger 
1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher
Vintage GEM Cutlery SE
CWR
Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB

The TSD Iced Lime Shave Soap face-lathered well with my Tom's B400 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1907 Gem Jr. Lather Catcher with a Vintage GEM Cutlery SE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva 5 in 1 ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

I had an excellent relaxing late shave tonight with the Gem Jr Bar and a new Gem SS PTFE.
This was my third use of Michelle's wool fat and it is progressively getting better.

Had a very good shave today on nearly a weeks growth. The J A Henckels Rapide handled the longer than normal stubble with ease.
