Hi all, just thought I would introduce myself. I have never shaved with a DE and have recently become obsessed with wanting to. I have been researching and finally decided to start with one of the Gillette Safety Razors from my fathers day but so far have been unsuccessful with finding one that suits my needs. I have been trying to find one in good shape that I would actually use on a daily basis but so far ebay is the only place I have found to buy them from and all of them seem to be going for a lot more than this forums suggests I should spend on one. As far as looking at new ones I'm not sure which one would be best. I really like the looks of the TTO's but the only one's I have found are the Vision (out of my price range) and the Weishi's (in my price range but Im afraid that being so cheap it may turn me off to DE's before I even get started). I would like to find a nice fat boy or other tto that is good for newbies. Can anyone point me in a good direction? I found a superspeed being offered for $25 on the buy/sell/trade forum but per the rules I have to be a member for 2 months i believe before I can use it, so in respect to the rules that would be a no-go for now. Is there a reputable website that I can purchase a vintage razor from at a decent price that anyone would like to share?
Either way, I'm glad I found this community and I intend to stay so I'm sure you will be hearing more from me in the future :)
