Hello,

My name is Karl and I live about an hour or so east of San Francisco in a little town called Clayton. I am a school teacher and postgraduate student. I've had an eye toward wet shaving for some time as I am drawn toward all things old. I love the feel and craftsmanship in products made decades ago. I picked up my first razor a little less than a year ago because I wanted to see what old razors were like. I enjoy restoring and using vintage woodworking tools and machinery and I though maybe and old razor would be something fun to clean up and have around. Little did I know how large the wet shaving community truly was. From the first day I put the vintage gillette to my face I was hooked. I haven't looked back at all. Though my current razor collection is modest (mostly due to lack of funds) I am constantly on the lookout for new things to try and old razors to put back into service.

Lincoln and Clayton are both towns I've been through during my days as Archaeologist shovel bum.
Limited funds are a common affliction these days, so do not feel any kit to modest.
