Just purchased a 9/16 Kranks 99 from Larry Andro at Whipped Dog. Larry was very patient answering dozens of emails with questions from me! I can't wait untill it arrives. I'll keep everyone posted!!

You did great! Just sent Larry an email not 5 minutes ago. He is great to work with. I particularly like that when it's time (and for the price of the honing), he will let you swap out your razor for free! :w00t:

+1 on Larry being a great guy to deal with!

Congrats and welcome to the addicting world of straight razors. I have essentially gave up DE razors altogether.

Welcome to a new chapter in your shaving routine. I used a DE for the first time today in a month, just because I wanted to know what the standard is that I am aiming at. I got a very unproblematic DFS but it felt weird and boring:lol:.
I must be more addicted to my str8 than I first realized but it does take a lot of dedicated time and attention to master. Go slow and do not hesitate to ask questions. Good Luck on your first shave.
That's how I got started, and what a great intro to straight shaving...
As stated, take your time...and enjoy the experience.
Congrat's and Welcome to the B&B :thumbup:
