I joined Badger & Blade a few days ago and have truly enjoyed reading all the reviews and advice you guys have. I made my first purchase from classicshaver.com and am awaiting my delivery.
What I ordered:
Merkur "Hefty Classic" Safety Razor
Vulfix #2197 Pure Badger Shaving Brush
Taylor of Old Bond Almond Shaving Cream
Proraso "Liquid Cream" After Shave Balm
Btw, I am a some what impulsive person (my wife would say very impulsive). So went to my local Target and bought a tube of Proraso and a cheap boar hair brush. I then proceed straight home and began playing with the cream and brush to try and get a good lather going. It worked pretty good but I can only imagine what it will be like with a badger hair brush.
I can see that this is going to be an expensive habit for me. So again I just wanted to say "HEY" to all you ladies and gent's and I look forward to posting more often with my shaving experiences.
On a side note. Am I the only one who, when I think badger and blade in my head I sometimes thing beaver and blade?
