Hello! I just joined this forum tonight after having lurked about for a while, and I must say, it just keeps getting better! Not only is this a site with so much information that it seemingly exists for the sole purpose of guiding me along my wet-shave-and-don't-mangle-your-face journey (so far bloodless ), but it comes with a dedicated board for "the finer things!" I'm the only twenty-year-old I know that smokes a pipe, drinks scotch, writes with a fountain pen and, most recently, shaves with a straight razor, so, as I'm sure you may appreciate, I have a shortage of people to talk with about these pleasurable pursuits (obsessions?) of mine. I look forward to becoming an active member in this community, and thanks to all for already providing me with so much to read and absorb!
