Hi Gents,

I am based in the U.K just outside Birmingham in Solihull. I started DE saving about 2/3 months ago and that has been going well. I use a Merkur Futur which I really like good close shaves. I am also using a CJB razor which I have had for a week, and I am still trying to get used to it, still losing some blood but I will keep on with it until I get the hang of it. Then I will move on to a straight.
Look forward to chatting with you guys.

Hi Stevie, welcome to the Nook. We're a friendly bunch here. Best tip I got when I started out with a DE was take it slow and let the weight of the razor do the work.

Welcome to TSN Stevie.

I'm just down the other end of the M5 mate - let me know if there's any blades you want to try for your Futur and I'll send some up to you as a PIF. Smile
