    Hi folks. New to the site. Look forward to lots of advice. Started with a straight razor about a month ago. Not doing to bad. Couple of nicks. Still nervous with the under the chin and neck area. Bought a Parker Shavette but just ordered a vintage straight razor from Whipped Dog a couple of days ago. Looking forward to it. Cheers! !!!!
