That's exactly how I stumbled across B&B - via my fellow cigar lovers at cigar asylum.
I just got my order from Lee's - a Merkur HD, Proraso cream, pure badger brush and a selection of blades.
I've been spending quite a bit of time watching mantic's great videos and browsing the forum and tried my first DE shave tonight.
And it wasn't too bad. It was closer than with my electric, with a little irritation on my neck, but MUCH less than with the Mach 3 I sometimes use. I've been using the electric foil because it didn't irritate my skin nearly as much as a blade (even though the shave wasn't that great) but am hopeful that DE shaving may be the ticket. So far so good!
Can't wait until I get to try it all again tomorrow
