I have been shaving with a Simpson Best Badger "Chubby" #2 for a couple of years now. I generally use Floris shave cream, but I also have a tub of Nancy Boy (don't knock it 'til you've tried it!) I use on a regular basis.
My wife recently bought me a Taylor of Old Bond Street travel brush of Super Badger. She is an excellent wife. (Today is our anniversary)
But until this week I have been using a Mach III for shaving.
I have ordered a Merkur 38c HD Classic Long Handle Barber Pole razor and a sampler pack of Derby, Feather, and Gillette blades. I am looking forward to trying these out.
I sometimes obsess with quality - I roast my own green coffee beans and have an Italian E60 grouphead espresso machine that I use daily. I bake bread (by hand - no bread machine here) every week. I have also recently started making my own sauerkraut. (it is unbelievably good. And it takes almost no work at all)
So I figure I had better get back to shaving the way my father did.
I have learned a lot on the board already, so I figured I would just pop up and introduce myself.
