I introduced myself a couple of days ago and I wish to thank those who welcomed me to the forums. My rook question is in regards to those of us who are getting started with wet shaving. Is it better to purchase a kit or purchase all of the pieces separately. I see kits available on line and in certain stores. But, with all the info on brushes I wonder if it is not better to buy all of the materials separately. This is, indeed, a rook question, but you don't know until you ask. Sorry mods if this is in the wrong forum. Thanks!
