Just wanted to say "Hello" to you all. After shaving? w/ a Norelco for many years, I got tired of the poor shave, and decided to go back to a wet shave. Several weeks ago, I bought a can-o-foam and some Mach 3 razors; much, much better! So, for XMas my kids bought be a Merkur DE Safety razor set. I have struggled for the last couple of days to get a good shave, but am looking forward to learning from the pros here!! I'll get myself acquainted with the forums this week, and see what I can learn. My name is Mark, and I am a retired/re-hired high school English teacher. My wife and I live in Salt Lake City, and have four sons-two who are married.
