    Congrats, those are great shavers. If you can get ahold of some Personna GEM PTFE coated stainless steel blades they are really smooth.

    I hope this helps Dating chart for your GEM/Ever-Ready/Star razor | TheShaveDen .

    thanks Bob, i picked up a pack of blades at the local rite-aid.. i'm so used to feather blades that i did notice quite a bit of drag while shaving. they did however leave me feeling a kid again.

    The Gem Personna blades through Amazon and, I think, Walgreen's are quite serviceable; I use them in my 1912. Enjoy the razor!
