Thread: First time shaver

  1. #1

    Default First time shaver

    Hello,
    My friend desertcat has been raving about wet-shaving for awhile and recently gave me a starter kit with a double-edge razor, soap, blades, and a badger brush. He taught me the basics last night and I gave myself my first wet-shave.

    I've been interested in the hobby for awhile, but haven't experienced it until now.

    Absolutely enjoyed it. I had my second shave this morning and had no idea how soft my face could feel after shaving. My Mach 5 has been exiled to a drawer. I'll be passing on the bug to my brother.
