I'm Andy, after 13 years with an electric and 20 with a cartridge razor...ending with the fusion in the shower with CO Bigelow cream, I have found real shaving. About 1.5 months ago I bought my first safety razor and am enjoying shaving.

I live in Olathe, Kansas and paid a visit to the gents place, bought a Parker 96r, a black badger brush and a alum block. From my first shave I was hooked... I watched a video and have been lurking a few forums so when the time came for my first shave I was successful. I had purchased Astra SP blades at TGP and a pack of German made Wilkie's from the B&BW in OP. Both blades work well for me, with the advantage going to Astra for longevity.

I have since acquired a Gillette Blue Tip from my father in law... It is comfortable, but with my current blades, it's too much work to get a BBS shave... I prefer the Parker for shave, like the GBT for handle length... I'M just afraid it's too mild, which surprises me because I don't have a heavy beard. (Fine hair that is graying)

I look forward to getting to know y'all and learning.

Andy
