Gem SS PFTE Blades - On Average, How Many Shaves?
#11
(10-06-2021, 04:46 PM)srqshaver Wrote: I just bought my first GEM razor, a Featherweight, and am excited to try it out today. I didn't have blades so I bought some PTFE coated blades on eBay. I only got 5 because I figure if I get 10 shaves per blade, it's going to be a while before I need more. I can also test whether I like the PTFE coated ones or want to try something else.

In any case, I always keep track so I'll make sure I count the shaves for each blade. I have pretty soft facial hair and also a round beard so only shaving my cheeks and neck. That means I should get many more shaves per blade I assume.

Boar brushes, brass razors, and hard pucks ARE traditional wet shaving. Everything else is modern day fluff for the girly men.

Sorry, I don’t have that kind of time on my hands. I would definitely elect this guy leader of whatever group we happened to be in when a vote was called. Any man with that much dedication knows the score.

I can get three to four complete head and face shaves of three passes. That is lots of real estate as entire head shave is about equal to three complete face shaves!!
