Hi all.....I found this group while doing some surfing after a post on a pipe smoking forum piqued my interest in wetshaving. I have gotten two shaves in with a DE, and I am really pleased with the results thus far.
My equipment to date is:
A new Weishi razor
Blade sampler pack from letterk
Van Der Hagen brush and soap because my Target has no Poraso :(
On the way to me is:
Lime, Patchouli & lavender, Sandalwood & Vanilla soaps,& Alum bar w/rack from Mama Bear
This Muhle-Pinsel brush http://www.pipesforless.com/mushbr18d.html
This should keep me busy for a while Though I am eying up a moss scuttle
I work construction...so I shower and do my shaving in the afternoon when I get home from work. Gives me plenty of time for a nice relaxing shave. I also smoke a pipe, roast my own coffee beans, brew beer, and enjoy my motorcycle! So the wetshaving really appeals to me...I love gadgets!
I am using the Mekur blade first, and have had two decent shaves with it. No nicks(knock on wood) and no ingrown hairs!!! I was using a M3 and one of those 5 blade jobbers....really did not like shaving with that one at all!! Too many ingrown hairs.
Thanks for all the help I've already gotten!!
