I figured I should probably introduce myself:

I am an avid wet shaver and have been so for quite a while. I started down this path maybe 20 years ago wheny mom owned a soap company and starting making men's shaving soaps (triple milled brown Windsor makes my heat flutter). At the time I didn't realize I was following the face prep that men had done for decades prior to me. All I knew is that high fat soap with great essential oils made my shaving experience more pleasurable. My mom retired the company about 5-8 years ago and my shave ritual sloughed off. Roughly 6 months ago my cousin conned me back into wet shaving by giving me an AOS kit as a gift. I. Was. Hooked. Since then I have amassed a collection of most of the British and US aristocrats as well as several modern stainless 3 piece razors. My go to kit is a British no 15 with aos preshave, mama bear spellbound woods, aos balm, and a splash of tabac. My go to brush is a semogue 2012 SE, which to me is the ultimate in form and soap wrecking. There really isn't a soap, croap, cream, tallow, milled, or glycerine it won't chew through and make great lather.

I live in the Pacific Northwest of the USA and enjoy all of the outdoor endeavors it provides. Whether that is skiing, fishing, hiking, or camping at one of our state or national parks. Anywho, that is my little blurb, it is a pleasure meeting everyone at this fine forum.
