long time lurker.. found this site after the AOM 'How To Shave Like Your Grandpa' article.

started with COB green tube cream, VDH brush and Schrick twin slims. moved to MB Lime Ice and Ogallala Sage and Cedar, Shea brush from Target.

currently using a Mulhe r106, RV blk badger (another RV on the way), soap rotation of MWF, Cade and Ogallala SC on weekends.

hoping Santa brings either AOS Sandlewood or AdP.

Welcome to B&B. If you get the AoS Sandalwood for Christmas, I think you'll be very happy with it.

Welcome to the B & B (and dis-engaging the 'lurking device'), and it sounds like you're off to a great start, (oh by the way..I love my Merkurs 23C & 38C). :shaving:
Also, it might wise to get a DE Razor Blade Sampler to see what blade is a good fit (sharp, dull, ect...), for your face and Razor.
And yes...this Forum has the knowledge, ideas, and alround 'know-how' (see link below), to assist in your Wet-Shaving experience. In a nut-shell...your 'gonna' love it here :w00t:


Also, once you get time....please tell all of us a little about yourself in the Hall of Fame sub-forum :biggrin1:

I'm happy with the Muhle. Went throught several blade samplers and a few of the medical prep blades. I basically created three stacks 'sucks', 'average', 'good'. Both the Feathers and Personna Medical Prep made the 'good' stack but I get a better consistent performance from the Personna's. I just started working through a 100 pack of those. Changing blades every Sunday I figure I'm good for awhile. My ADs seem to be brushes and soaps. Currently have a Muhle synthetic, VHD, Burma Shave, Shea, AOS travel, RV UK blk badger in IBO and have another RV coming any day now it's a Shavemac D01 Two-band knot in the extreme flat-top shape set in IBO with a little extra weight in the handle. Already thinking about a RV boar.
