I've been a lurker here on B&B soaking up the good advice. Anyway, I've been DE shaving since June, still working my way through the starter pack I bought from WCS. I have a Merkur 34C, tweezerman, and a few soaps (using C&E Nomad right now). I would just like to say thanks for all of the helpful advice contained here. Thanks to the wiki, I've developed a pretty good technique and haven't drawn blood once yet.
