Hi everyone.
I have returned to DE and SE shaving after a gap of forty years. The electric razor and the multi-blade disposables are not satisfactory anymore. So, I found my father's 1946 Super Speed and my old aluminum -handled Tech and looked around on the web for some shaving supplies. I was amazed at the variety of products to be found. Used to be only Gillette, Aqua Velva and Old Spice in my house when I started shaving. Now, I am buried under a mound of samples of soaps, creams, aftershaves and blades. Not to mention a dozen or so razors.
But it is a lot of fun too.

I also just started back with DE after 40 years of cartridges and electrics. It's good to know that I'm not alone in this boat! Wink
