I have enjoyed viewing the posts in B&B for some time and decided to join the discussions. Have been wet shaving for about 6 years this last go around and really enjoy the ritual and relaxation of the wet shave routine. Have decided to go back to the DE and I'm waiting for my new Parker 90R to arrive. Have been using the M3 and not getting close shaves and a lot of irritation. Hope I can get back to the DE style of shaving without hacking myself to pieces. LOL I used a DE (Gillette fatboy) back in the early sixties but it got lost somewhere in my travels. Boy, do I wish I had THAT one back now. Hope to pick one up soon. Nice to find a group of men that truely enjoy the manly art. From what I have seen on the forum this is a great bunch of lads.
