Welcome to TSN!

What have you tried so far?

Thanks. Started with a Merkur HD (nice safe choice), and a Dovo straight. Although I can see the appeal of stropping, honing, etc. my schedule just didn't allow for it. So, I sold that and have a shavette as well. I pretty much stick to DE and now have a Merkur slant sledgehammer and a heavy duty long handle Merkur (39C I think). Just recently got myself a GEM gbar and a Schick injector to try out SE (haven't arrived yet). I'd love to get my hand on a Mongoose, but waiting for public sale or someone who's ok selling private to Canada.

For soaps, I have Proraso (good for sensitive) soaps and creams and waiting on some Tabac soap and a stick for when travelling. Been using a couple semi economic silvertip brushes but have a badger coming just to see if I like the backbone.

So yeah, anyone wanting to sell a Mongoose, I'd be very grateful Smile

Good afternoon, Ladies & Gentlemen.  My name is Frank (or Frankie)  I'm a civil servant for the State of New York, born in Philadelphia, PA, grew up on Tipperary Hill in Syracuse, NY.  I've loved traditional wet shaving since I picked up my first straight razor, a Dovo Bismarck many moons ago, and Gillette Slim Adjustable Safety Razor.  

Favorite brushes:  High-end/bespoke badger such as Simpson, Savile Row, Paladin, and Morris & Forndran, have yet to try a two-band Thater.  The Simpson PJ3 Disco Haze is my most beloved brush.  Everything about it is perfect for me.

Besides this wonderful hobby & grooming, I am a hardcore patriot that loves his country, veteran of OEF/OIF, honorably discharged U.S. Marine, die-hard fan of the Syracuse Orange Basketball, Philadelphia Eagles football, and a few other sports teams.  

Much love for the outdoors, entertainment, Martin Scorsese/Quentin Tarantino/Coen Bros/Robert Rodriguez movies, world history, history of organized crime, reading, HUGE connoisseur of beer & tequila as well as a fine cigar, and almost all things Resident Evil except for the movies, although I will admit, Milla Jovovich is my "wife-in-waiting" X-D.

Cheers, everyone.
