How's it going everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself to the community. My name is Co from NJ and I've been referred here by the super friendly and genuine, Lee from Lee Razors. I recently switched to DE shaving a month or so ago. My brother went to Naples,Italy recently and I had asked him to pick me up a DE razor (only one he found, which was a cheap 5euro TTO Weishi imitation "Globe", i should have never even opened it) Then my EJ89 came in Smile

We have family in Naples, the Nola-Saviano area as well as Santa Maria De Castelebate which is near Agropoli. While I was in Santa Maria, I had received my first shave with a DE razor from a relative who is a barber in the small tourist town. He set me up in his cobblestone backyard, just feet away from the beach, and thats when my interest sparked. It was an amazing experience to receive a proper shave in the setting I was in.

My first razor I recently bought is an EJ89 Barley and shortly after acquired the ATT Titan R, ATT Atlas M, the iKon set, and a Gillette Tech from ebay (yeah I got addicted REAL quick!) I previously have been wet shaving with a Fusion for some years. I never had any problems with it, gave me super smooth shaves, I never went WTG, just XTG and ATG. Going WTG, and more passes with a DE is a new routine for me, but I'm really enjoying it. I hear how many people try DE razors and never look back, and of course the price of Fusion carts is crazy.

So I'm experimenting with these razors I have with different blades to see what works right for me. I look forward to learning this art and making new friends here on the Nook. If anyone has any questions regarding my experience on any of the razors I listed, please feel free.

Thanks fellas and I'll see you around Smile
