Been lurking for a while. My Braun of 10 years finally died (it had become such a part of my life, it will be missed even if it was electric) and I made the jump to the wet shave. I've been figuring it out for the past 6 months. Started with my dad's old 1964 Gillette Super Speed, a tub of White Proraso cream, and a budget Parker badger brush. After plenty of nicks and trial and error with lathering, shaving direction, yada, yada, and constantly touching my face while studying for law school, I've embraced the sickness (cure?) of wet shaving. Picked up an Edwin Jagger DE89 and love all of its chrome goodness. Got some Proraso pre/post which is like icing on the cake. I'm waiting for a stick of Arko to arrive and am putting away some student loan money for a Weber DLC and another brush. This is a great forum and has become my go-to distraction from studies. Been debating on what aftershaves to try. Clubman products are calling my name, but I'm open for suggestions (student budget friendly, of course...).
Thanks. Keep up the eradication of whiskers.
