Impression

Erasmic is nice! Old fashioned smell and lathers up a beauty!

The blade is NOS. Rougher than the teflon coated GEMs, but a mile different to the uncoated blades I have. Two weepers, entirely without provocation, which disappeared as readily as they appeared. I reckon the blade is broken in now and the next shave with it will be fantastic! 1924 next time, this being my first run with the 1914. It's light, smooth and absolutely great to use. The 1912 still pips it, though, for me ...
