Hello gentlemen,

I heard of TSN through Teiste and have really enjoyed my time browsing around. I've been wetshaving for 18 months now, and it has become small, treasured daily routine for me.

My daily shave is a two-passer plus touch up with a Tradere handle paired with an Olaf Rasmussen stainless steel surgical prep razor head. I almost exclusively use Voskhod blades; my second favorite are Personna labs. I occasionally use my Gillettes (Single Ring, Tech, SS and Fatboy), and rotate daily through my Semogue 620, two-band chunky New Forest, Vie-long horse and Muhle silvertip (synthetic) fibre. Current lather rotation is MWF, Tabac, Proraso cream, and Turkish Old Spice. I finish up with Thayer's unscented and occasionally Master's Bay Rum or Barbasol Pacific Rush (cool!). I used to like Tabac, Weleda, and Jack Black beard lube for balm but am perhaps going away from balm because I don't think I really need it.

Initially, I thought I would find one set-up that would be the "best" but have come to appreciate a moderate bit of variety. A big part of the fun has been prompting almost a dozen friends and family members to begin enjoying shaving for the first time.

Thanks for sharing and spreading wetshaving with me.

Thank you, gentlemen.

Sounds good, Johnny. I'm bound to find a stranger that's related to a Johnny. Smile
