I started wet shaving with a safety razor about 3 weeks ago, and fell in love with it. Never has my face been smoother with no razor burn or bumps.
I am currently using a Merkur 34C HD with Wilkinson Sword blades. The blades are good, and I can find them at Walmart. A friend of mine gave me a few Shark Super Chromes, and they are so much smoother, so I ordered a box of 100.
For shaving cream, I'm using Omega in a tub. It's really nice. I have two tubes of TOBS coming in the mail. They should be here this week.
Well, that's it so far on my shaving adventure.
Thank you all for any advice that I may receive in the future.

Hi Cajunboy2k,

Welcome to The Shave Nook! Biggrin

Great introduction and story. Glad to hear you're enjoying switching to traditional wet shaving and are having good results with your Merkur 34C and Wilkinsons.

I currently live in Nederland, but I'm originality from Port Neches.
I guess Mid-County is a more correct term.

And thanks to all for the warm welcome.
