I recently became reinterested in wet shaving when I accompanied a friend to an Art of Shaving store. I gave up wet shaving years ago due to skin irritations but always liked the feel of a true clean shave. My visit to the store revitalized my interest but I've never been a fan of just buying what someone tells me in a store so I went home and started doing some research of my own.
Growing up my father used a safety razor from India with Wilkinson Sword blades. It was the first razor I ever shaved with so I decided to try using one again. I recently orfered a Merkur Heavy Duty 34c and have been researching brushes. I have decided on a simpson duke 3 best badger hair since I'm not sure if I'm gonna prefer to face lather or bowl lather. I was interested in finding a local store that might carry the brush so I could actually get a sense of the brush before purchase. Any advice on a place in the philadelphia region that specializes in shave products or just any insight for a new wet shaver would be apreciated. Excited to be a part of the TSN family. The discussions on here have already been very helpful.

I don't know of anything in the Philadelphia area but if you ever get into New York City then you might want to try Pasteur's Pharmacy:
