Hello,

I must say I am so happy I found this forum! I have belonged to a few others but lately I have been disappointed in them. I will just leave it at that. I really the feel and the tone of this board.

I have been DE shaving for 3 1/2 years now. I primarily like soaps and face lathering. I have tried lots and lots of soaps and feel like I am getting to know the ones I really like. There are always more to try though. That is another reason I love this hobby. My wife thinks I am completely nuts Tongue. I have also tried lots of brushes but I am down to a 24mm TGN Grade A Silvertip with a Bubinga handle made by a nice guy on a different forum. I also have a Savile Row 3118 for travel. My top 3 soaps are MdC, Cade, and Valobra milled into a dish. My one and only razor at the moment is a Merkur 1904 with a Bob's Razorworks Bullmasiff Deluxe handle. I am about to pull the trigger on a EJ Barley though. My favorite piece of shave gear is my DB brush scuttle. I am interested in trying out creams now that I have never tried one. I just have to figure out how to face lather with a cream.

That's me and some of what I like in the shaving world. I hope to make some friends and have a good time. Thanks for having me!

Welcome! I did a fair bit of forum-shopping before I settled here, and so far it's a very nice forum with very welcoming and including people.

Depending on where in Ohio you are, I might have driven past your town at some point... gone trough Ohio a couple of times while heading elsewhere. Looking back I wish I had taken the time to stop and look around.

Thanks for all the kind welcomes.

For all the fellow members from Ohio, I live in Norwalk but grew up in Sandusky.

@nickeasy - I will look into the TBOS Avocado. Thanks for the recommendation.
