Im a newbie and just started wetshaving a week ago. I have been lurking on this forum for a few days and I just wanted to say thanks for all the tips I have gotten. This is a great place and I plan to spend many a hours here. I just got a Merkur HD safty razor and am using Palmolive and a badger hair brush. For the first time I actually LIKE shaving. That is about it, I felt I should let everyone know that I have come out of the shadows to join the community full time!
