I have been surfing around the forum for a couple weeks now, and have to say, the site is awesome. I figured I should go ahead and join and introduce myself. I found my grandfather's old DE safety razor(I think it is a SS with black handle)the other day and I just finished my second shave this morning. My first shave went fine, but not the best. This morning I was able to shave WTG, XTG, and ATG, and it was the best shave I have ever had. I have yet to purchase any good shave cream or brush, so I will be looking over the reviews for awhile before making a purchase. Anyway, thanks for all the information and the great site.
