Hi - My name is William and I live in Seattle Washington usa. I began using a DE razor about a year ago, and I have become an avid fan of all things shaving. I'm 60, and I remember my first brand new razor was a Gillette trac II when they were the latest thing. (must have been 1969) And so, for decades, I was using the multi-blades and paying all that money. Not sure what sparked my interest, but I shopped for and bought a Merkur DE razor on Amazon, and that was it - I was hooked.
Right now I'm favoring the iKon OSS with Astra SP blades, but I plan on starting to use a straight razor sometime soon. It is amazing to me how hard it is to buy any traditional shaving supplies without using the internet. The stores all carry a barrage of multi-blades, but few, if any, DE blades or razors. If you want to shave with lather that didn't come out of a can, you are hard pressed to find an alternative without shopping online.
Well, enough out of me. I'm also a B&B member, and I post reviews on Amazon.com as Calabash. -Very glad to be here-
