Hello fellow members,

       I was a long time lurker here but I don't know why I haven't signed up before. Johnny told me to write up an introduction so here we go. I'm from Istanbul, Turkiye. My name is Oguz, and I am relatively young for this fine hobby, wet shaving. Being only 18, everybody around me in college just don't get why I'm bbs shaven everyday. I really enjoy all the collecting, trying stuff but the most importantly I feel my skin is very healthy and this is wonderful. For my luck, I have avoided carts up to now and don't think I will go back to them. I'm proud of myself jumping on the straight wagon on my 3rd month of wet shaving, but I am a razor and blade junkie so straight is just for my playful moments. Biggrin

Have I said I LOVE collecting stuff? I passed the 30 soap/cream line with the recent acquisitons. (They haven't arrived yet, bummer.)

Noticable equipment of mine;
-Duke 3 Best
-Omega 49 (Yes, it is Ferrari Red!)
-Standard Razors Black set
-Ern Solingen 11/16

       I have used 89 Barley, but it was too mild for me to enjoy. Have an USSR Ideal Adjustable (for sale actually on my local forum) but again, it was too mild as being a Slim clone. Eyeing the gold Fatip, waiting for g&c to stock it back, and thinking of R41, too.

       I think I may overkilled the blade section, because currently I got 30 different blades stocked of various amounts. Recently passed the 300 line but FYI, I haven't done any 100pack buy, yet.

       For the software, I have a very bad SAD, that made me order 12 soaps on my last order even though I currently have more than 15 soaps. Haslinger was so tempting and with the price of tvbshaving it was an offer I couldn't refuse. (Hey Bruce!)

       The Nook is such an enabler, for soaps and for brushes exclusively. But I enjoy the talk here a LOT. Thanks for creating such a nice place for wet shaving enthusiasts and gentlemen who are enjoying fine tastes in life.

Thanks for reading, too!

Excellent ! Blade choice, prep and overall technique may be the biggest factors. Smile
