My name is Bill, born in Montreal and I've been living in the Greater Toronto-Hamilton area on the North shores of Lake Ontario for 35 years. I've been sorta wet shaving for the better part of of 23 years ago when I discovered the Body Shop's Shave Cream and their cheapie synthetic brushes in my early 20s and made the switch to a safety razor back in 2008 after getting tired of being ripped off by Gillette with their Fusion whatever blades.

So, my go to brushes are a New Forest High Mountain Two Band with a 22mm knot, a Simpson's Colonel XL2 in best badger, a Kent pure badger turn back travel brush and a Crabtree and Evelyn/Edwin Jagger Best Badger Brush with a 20mm knot. My go to blades are Vokshods and Gillette 7 O'Clock Greens and my go to razors are a restored Gillette Slim Adjustable that belonged to my dad, an Edwin Jagger DE 89 and Chatsworth razors and a Parker 82R.
