Hello everyone! Thanks to everyone on this forum - it's a fantastic resource for the new wet-shaver.
I've been using a brush and shaving soaps for about five months, and made the switch to a DE razor (EJ DE89BA11) a couple of months ago. All I can say is WOW! No more ingrown hairs, no more irritation (most of the time anyway), and the closest shave I've ever had. I had previously used all manner of products and razors (electrics, cartridge razors, a dozen different foams and gels, etc.) and nothing even comes close.
