Thur 12th October Omega 10005 boar L`Occitane Cade soap ER 1912- Peerless Set Gem S/S [ 3 ] Alum Rub/Rinse off Puig Quorum A/S Lotion ER !912- Rediscovered Having neglected my ER 1912s after an unpleasant Shave with one , decided that it would be unfair not to try them again. Others have said that there are differences in the Shaving performance of them, due to variations in the manufacturing process over the years. I have now completed my 3rd consecutive shave with ER 1912 from the Bathroom/ Peerless set. I discovered that these models Shave very smoothly without a shim,and are very quiet compared with earlier models. All Three Shaves have been top notch, and are certainly as good as any I have had with other Vintage SE, in terms of ease, comfort and quality of the finished Shave. In fact IMHO the quality of Shave is up there with those I have had with Modern SEs using AC type blades. I do not know how the ER 1912 compares wth the modern SE/ Gem razor- maybe one day. Anyway very pleased to have rediscovered the ER 1912.
