Hello,

I am Cyril from Lyon France.

It's been two years now I have started traditional wet shaving. I have had a lot of fun reading shaving forum and piling on shaving stuff.
I have tried a lot of product, razors and shaving brushes. Now My tastes have refined and I only buy a few thing once in a while.

My razor of choice is the R41. I have always appreciated aggressive razors, the Furtur is a favorite since the beginning but the R41 specific blade angle gives me the best and comfortable shaves ever.

My favorites shaving products are tallow based soap (except Martin de Candre), artisan made products should I need a nicely scented products (Fitjar/nanny's silly soap/Queen Charlotte soaps) and a few creams (Trumper's coconut oil and Castle Forbes lime or lavender).

I have a dozen of shaving brushes from Simpson (GYLE/Chubby#2 super/Chubby#1 two band/Duke#2/Wee Scott), shavemac (177/custom two band D01/custom silver tip flat top), new forest (Tigris Perla silver tip),Rooney (Stubbyheritage XXL) and Semogue (Caravela/1354). My rotation includes now GYLE/Wee scott/Duke and the Shavemac flat top. I only use the others scarcely now.

See you soon on the board !
