Good morning! Smile

I am back in town for 2 more hours and now have access to my own computer again so I will introduce myself.
Geezer has been saying that this is a very good group of wet shavers and that I should join. So....I finally did! Smile

My wet shaving background is that I have been using a straight razor for about 9 years now. I have not used any other type of razor since I started with straights. I started at the age of 55
and became a bit OCD on the subject. Now I have accumulated over 800 str8's and many, many hones of all types. There are also many DE & SE razors in my collection. Geezer is helping me clean up those and explaining the mechanisms & how to use them ( such as the Autostrop).
Both Geezer and I help out the new guys in our area with 1 on 1 sessions at our home plus have put together several shaving get-together's in Minnesota & Wisconsin. It is really interesting to meet so many different people.

I hope to learn from all of you and maybe I can help a few new guys from time to time.

Have a good day, Smile

Hi Randy, I am glad you are close bye, you surely taught me a bunch!, and now are here! This is where I send those that are interested in the safety razor side of shaving and good quality personal shave products.
Randy was my honing mentor and rarely has anyone found someone with more confusion about honing to deal with.
He taught me well enough for me to be able to give no cost help to those passing through, or near to, the Eau Claire, WI. area.
Thanks to all that pass it onward!
