Hi all - I've been reading threads here for a while but never posted, so I thought I'd introduce myself. My name's Rob, and I've been wetshaving for almost a year.
Oddly enough, I got into it because I was getting married. I was researching high and low for the best possible groomsmen gifts when I stumbled upon a suggestion from Art of Manliness that the best gift I could give was the ability to shave like one's grandfather. So, I embarked on a journey of understanding the big deal about wetshaving (buying gear, learning how to use it properly, and then buying starters kits for my groomsmen).
If I had as much free time on my hands as my brother, the unemployed Mr. Imperial (fellow B&B addict), and much more financial free-will from SWMBO, I'd probably have an entire room dedicated to gear. For now, though, I rock a Parker 22R, Tweezerman badger brush, Derby blades, and I switch between Conk Bay Rum soap and Bigelow cream. I'm going antiquing this weekend and really hope for a good find or two before I resort to scouring the Want/Buy/Sell forum. :)
