Yet another newbie...
...wanting to say hello to all fellow wetshaving enthusiasts !
I've been lurking on B&B for a number of months, and I must say that if it wasn't for the information of this forum (and, of course, the wonderful videos of mantic) I would have remained the very unhappy multi-blade/canned-goo shaver that I was.
Admittedly, I was initially really sceptical about the whole concept of traditional wetshaving. How could products conceived in the 1900s be better than the (supposedly) über-high-tech stuff I was already using ?
But after six months of using a DE, I can positively testify that they are. And my experiences are consistent with those of most users of this forum : I get closer shaves with much less irritation, and shaving has ceased to be a chore for me.
So, I believe that I owe a big thank you to all you gentlemen (and ladies !) of B&B for sharing your knowledge. I hope that as a member of the forum I will now be able to share my own wetshaving experiences and give something back to the community by helping other newcomers.
