Hey guys, wanted to check in to introduce myself and say thanks! I've been interested in wet shaving for a while now (particularly straight razor shaving) and it wasn't until about 2 weeks ago that I found B&B. After reading a few wiki articles I stumbled across a link to the "Kyle's Prep" article and it has forever changed my life. By just adding a prep step (apply shaving lather in the shower) I have been amazed at the difference!
I'm a manufacturing engineer living in Chicago, IL (Hyde Park), I'm originally from Seattle, WA but my wife's getting her Masters of Divinity degree out here. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!
