Bought these blades after I was gifted a very nice near mint Gem Razor that had belonged to a revered Great Uncle.
Used the razor a couple of times and the blades certainly performed well.
The razor kit contained a pair of original Gem branded blades. The new blades are nearly identical in appearance.
While these blades certainly produced a good clean shave, they are heavy blade with a stiff edge,in comparison to a standard DE blade and as result, rather unforgiving.
This I suspect, is more to do with my skin and technique than any failing in the blade.
As any experienced wet shaver will tell you finding the correct blade for your razor is a matter of trial and error. And in this instance this combo is not suited to me.
