Just wanted to say hello to everyone. New to the forum but not to shaving. It didn't take long for me to get the bug after searching through the forum here and admiring everybody's collections. I just made the switch from cartridge razors to DE razors and I'm really enjoying everything about it. I tried to use a DE many moons ago but I never really gave it a chance until recently. I'm starting to try different razors and blades now to get that right combo for myself but I've got a ways to go.My wife said that she hopes this won't cost much to figure out. Hahaha I told her nooooooo not much at all.(fingers crossed behind my back)
So far I've been using a Parker 92R with feather blades but I've got a Fat Boy E2 on the way to give a try. I know my dad used a Fat Boy for years and was a big fan of it. I talked to him a few weeks ago about it and he said that he had lost his favorite razor years back during a move so I bought him a D1 from a member here and can't wait to surprise him with it.
Anyway I'll stop rambling and get back to drooling over all the shaving eye candy here in the forums.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.  The more I look around I realize that I have been missing out on the joys of shaving for a long time. For over 20 years I've been using a cartridge razor and didn't enjoy shaving at all. In the past, I could only shave once or twice a week due to razor burn but now I can shave every other day with the DE. I still get a little burn or irritation on my neck if I go against the grain but it's not as bad as it was before. Maybe working on my pre-shave routine will help out a little more.

Welcome to TSN. Keep your fingers crossed when talking to the wife about how you are starting to encroach upon her makeup space with your new found shaving supplies.
