In the early days of safety razors, Gem was one of the key competitors to the Gillette empire, turning out tools for the masses from the 1880's all the way up to the 1980's. This Micromatic “Clog Pruf” single edge safety razor model was introduced in the 1930's to compete with new models being introduced by Gillette. It operates with a TTO mechanism, meaning the razor blade is loaded via simple opening doors on the head of the safety razor.
