EVERBODY's A WINNER...see post #21 for details...

I gotta say, this site is pretty darn cool... I began wet shaving in late August of 2012. I found The Shave Nook right about that time... As a beginner I was interested in learning everything I could about wet shaving. I've been cruising this board from the beginning. I found so many helpful and generous people here. I have received through PIF's and friendships so many nice things that for me would be hard to afford. Recently I've received a huge mother load of stuff. I had a sale going on and pulled it just to try and help a few new guys. Just like the fellas here at The Shave Nook took me under their wing.

I have 3 razors left from my sale. All great starter razors. I'm looking for a few new guys who don't have a huge cash flow and would like to start wet shaving, or you need a decent back up.

RULES... NOOBS ONLY... It's gotta be CONUS, Sav is STILL PISS POOR...lol
10 to 25 posts to enter.
Noob can only enter if he has only ONE razor or NO razor.
Write a few lines telling us what got you interested. And of course, I'm In !!!
Sav is a control freak so I will let Random.org pick the 3 winners but I will decide who gets what razor...
I'm looking for guys who live check to check. If you drive a Mercedes or BMW or some kinda preppie mobile DON'T ENTER...lol
This contest closes May 5th. That's my Mothers Birthday...

I ask the Vets to bump this so I can get a large pool of guppies....

Here is what's up for grabs:

Parker 96R. My 1st DE razor. Great shaver that served me well...

My beloved Schick Krona. I bought 1 then bought 3 more. I've already started 2 guys with 2 of them. I'm giving this one and keeping my favorite. AWESOME DE SHAVER...

And Finally a really nice Gillette Travel Tech. It has a great case to boot. I wonder how many people started wet shaving with a Tech... IMHO a TECH is the best vintage NOOB razor. This one has an aluminum handle. A very easy razor to use...

The Krona is a great razor. Not a noob (not in), but the Krona is one of my absolute favs. I love my Tech too (have two), and its easy to adjust with a shim or two if you need it.

Excellent PIF Sav. Thanks for this.

C'mon new guys! This is an awesome PIF & Sav won't steer you wrong. It's not that difficult, just say "I'm in" (not me Sav, them!).

You know you want to, just do it!

I began wet shaving about a month a go. I started looking for alternatives to cartridges and came across a DE website and started researching, which led me to this fine site. My only razor is an EJ89l. My second son was born on March 29th so I made switch while on leave for two weeks. I am a teacher in a right to work state, so a Mercedes is out of the question. So, I'm in!

I'm playing the poor teacher card too! I'm in.

I've been classic shaving for about 6 weeks now (started a few days before shoulder surgery, Great idea Dodgy). My only razor is a gem clog-pruf mircomatic. I'd love to try a DE shave, and if it's not for me, I'll pass it on.

I can't wait till the 5th, the suspense is killing me. FYI I forgot to mention the reason I got in to wet shaving. 3 kids and having to work 2 jobs told me to save some money somewhere. So I chose shaving, I only wish I did this years ago. Also no Mercedes in this driveway.
