My name is Martin and I'm a shave-oholic.

Am aged 57 and discovered the world of real wet shaving about 5 years ago. Before the usual canned foam and system razors, no joy at all.

Now it's completely different, and I'm deep into wet shaving and enjoy my daily shave so much. Luckily, not too severe attacks of acquisition disorder. A dozen of safety razors, a dozen of brushes (9 of them Simpsons), 30 soaps and cremes and a mere 400 blades in stock, that's all.

My weak point are brushes, and almost every day I'm thinking, which one will be my next Simpsons. I'm afraid, that persuasing here will be high…

Guten tag Smile Or should 'tag' be capitalised... my German has gotten really rusty.

At any rate, welcome to the Nook - it's a very friendly place filled with knowledgeable enablers Tongue

Welcome to The Shave Nook. Vas ist los mein freund? And that's pretty much the limit of my very bad German from 40 years ago.

I too spent a few very pleasant years in the Dexheim/Oppenheim area of what was then West Germany in the early '70s. Nice people, great food.
