I grew up in the days when you were lucky to have a handheld calculator—the thought of online communities to offer advice and showcase best-in-class products wasn’t even on the horizon.  Since we lived near the Schick plant, the shaving ritual started with my borrowing my dad’s Type L injector, and heretic that he was, his Gillette.  My mom believed that shaving would make my hair grow back coarser, so Santa brought me a Norelco electric for Christmas—no batteries, tether yourself to the outlet during the shave.  That has defined my shaving ever since—wet shaving for a while mostly with SE, straights, occasional periods of cartridges use until the conquest of the disposable, multi-bladed moisturizing-strip ingrown hair generators, and periods where I perceived life to be so busy that I went to the latest Norelco to sleep a few extra minutes in the morning.   I’ve been back to wet shaving for a while, I think this time for good.  I have always valued quality over speed/quantity/cost in most areas of my life, now that extends to shaving.  With the myriad excellent artisan products available, I’ll gladly get up 10 minutes earlier each morning to start the day off well.

As for other items that occupy my free time: my aunt worked at Remington, so I’ve been shooting in some form since elementary school, my grandmother taught me to cook and I enjoy making and eating good food, and some combination of reading, outdoor activity, parenting, or DIY project more than completes my days. Now, I'll add this community to those activities.

Mike
