Just thought I would Say hello, and give a little information about myself. Somehow I feel like Iím in either a 12step program or grade school with that statement, but I digress.
As I stated Iím new here, and to wet shaving, and by new I mean I havenít started yet, but Iím very interested, and found this sight while I was researching the proper equipment for me, and where to start.
Now for me, Iím 34, and Iím a manufacturing engineer, in a manufacturing facility in central Indiana. Currently I sport a well trimmed, well most days well trimmed, beard. Iím looking into wet shaving and DE razors in specific, for both when I do a full shave, and for my daily or thereabouts, maintenance trimming around my neck and cheeks, and where ever else I have arrant hairs. I have had it with the disposables, and the replacement blade razors. I feel that there is no need to have 5 blades to do what I used to do with 1. Also, I have been trying to find hobbies that my wife doesnít know are hobbies; they are useful, and not too costly, unlike most of my hobbies.
Speaking of hobbies, I like to ride motorcycles, and ATVís, also, I have been somewhat of a cigar collector, and as of late pipe collector, I would say smoker, but I havenít smoked either a pipe or cigar in quite some time, Indiana winter and all, so right now I just look at them and tend to the humidity and such, so they are like my own stamp collection. I have also been getting into craft beers, and I have been a bourbon guy for quite some time now.
Well, I look forward to learning lots here, and as for now, I believe a Merkur 34C is in my future.
