After lurking around the forums for the last week or so I thought that I would stop by and say hello. I had an aha moment the first time I started reading through the forums... You don't have to shave everything in just one pass! After 20+ Years of using a cartridge razor I was under that impression. Thanks to the information on B&B I am now taking a more enjoyable and leisurely shave with a DE razor. The nice part is that the razor (76 Gillette Adj) was passed along to me by my father-in-law.
I would also like to thank B&B for the Nov. Newbie contest... as a lucky winner I am looking forward to trying a new soap!
