I've actually have been a member here for a long time, but that's only because a couple years ago I joined trying to figure out what a couple of old razors I had sitting around my house were worth. I've always done a wet shave, I never liked electric razors, but up till now I've been using a gillette fusion. Recently I bought a bar of lightfoot pine shave soap and a shave brush. Then today I was at an antique flea market and decided I would like to try a straight razor shave so I looked around and found a nice condition Krusius Brothers KB extra razor for $5. I've been reading the shave wiki and can't wait to try it out but I guess I should find myself a strop first since even though the blade is really sharp it should be honed. Well I just thought I would stop in and say hi and see if anyone has any pointers for me before I start.
