Hello Gents,
I've been wet shaving for 50+ years although most of it was back and forth between blades and electrics. I started using a brush close to 3 years ago and within the past 2 months I've come full circle back to where I started, a DE razor. I didn't realize there were so many forums and online retailers specifically for shaving, but then I never really looked for them. Now I've become hooked and somewhat of a fanatic. Four brand new razors in 6 weeks plus all the creams, soaps, aftershaves, etc, etc. I've gone hog wild.
I am retired military and a retired government senior IT tech. I have a number of hobbies; trains, shotgun sports, IDPA and Cowboy Action Shooting as well as music and photography. Now I can add shaving to the mix.

being that I'm young and started out with the canned foam/gel and a plastic razor, I can tell you that traditional wet shaving is making a comeback for a few reasons:

1: it's cheaper, if your AD is kept in check
2: you typically get WAY better shaves after you get used to the software and hardware
3: it's simply more enjoyable
