Good Day to All!
Well, I suppose I have been wet shaving, with a DE, for a couple of months now. I am in the Navy and, therefore, have to shave on a daily basis. This caused MUCH irritation and was the part of my morning that I dreaded. So I did some research and found out that Safety Razors don't tug the hair, just cuts the hair. I was simply looking for something to make it less painful, and never imagined I would actually enjoy shaving, so I was hesitant to drop lots cash for this "necessary evil". I did however figure that it would look pretty next to my sink if I had a matching set, so I dropped the cash anyway (more than I probably should have), and bought a T&H DE Razor and best Badger Brush with stand and bowl. I also got a sampler of their shave creams, etc. and purchased a blade sampler from The Shave Den. I have to say, I LOVE shaving! I do it when I don't have to, I'm on vacation and on the weekends. Since, I have gone a little nuts(So has the SWMBO, tit for tat right?). To add to my T&H set, I have a Merkur 38C HD (am waiting on a 37C Slant Bar), a Simpson's "Major" and (for a beginner) an impressive selection of Shave Creams, AS, and colognes. I really like Voshkod blades (quality and dirt cheap), but I am also happy with Swords and Sharks, haven't grown the balls for feathers...yet. So that's a little about where I am. See you about the forum!
