Hello everyone.
My name is Leo and I live in Wisconsin.
I have recently started looking for the best way to shave. After hundreds of dollars wasted on different razors someone told me to try a safety razor and to use a shaving soap and brush and what a difference it has made.
Can't wait to get to know you people and learn new things.

It's great to have you in the Nook!

You'll definitely learn old things that are "new" again. It's a good thing you didn't say you started looking into this to save money! Wink

Nope! Money was not the reason for the change.
I had a Gillette sensor and Mach3,Norelco the kind with the lotion in it and a Braun 7 series. All left me with razor burns. I found couple of Gillette safety razors at a rummage sale and took them and cleaned them really good and so far they are working great. We will see what the long term results will be.

You can save money using a DE razor; just like you can row across the Atlantic if you really want to Tongue

Welcome Leo,

Hope you enjoy your new interest for a long time to come.
btw. look for other shavers in your region, that way you get to try out new stuff without buying it first.

Thanks everybody.
There aren't many forums that make a person feel as welcome as all of you people do.
