Hello All,

I have been a lurker here and with B&B for a few months educating myself on the many aspects of our hobby and reinforcing my sanity that there are others who get addicted to the variety of products and possibilities related to wet shaving. Prior to taking up the hobby of wet shaving I put off shaving 2-3 days as it was more of a chore....or grew a beard to keep from having to shave.

Now....I shave daily and am thrilled to be trying a new brush/soap/aftershave/razor combo to experience the difference in each. From learning the correct angles on the razors, building the correct lather per soap/cream, to the feeling and smell of a nice after shave.....it is simply intoxicating to my senses.

I started with SR last September and am currently experimenting with some different DE's to narrow down my preferences for each(to control my RAD and $$$). I like the consistent BBS and nostalgia I enjoy from my SR's, but would probably switch long term to DE if I found a good combo for a DE that does the same but with less effort as involved with maintaining a SR.

Hopefully my time will be well invested helping others and sharing our passion!

P.S. Certainly when the time comes and I can post to Swap & Shop....then my life/budget will become even more interesting. Angel

Welcome-- while I think you can find what you are looking for in a DE razor...

You should also take a look at the GEM and Ever Ready SE options.  It may form the best of both worlds for you. (I'd avoid Valet because blades are more of an issue)

You could also look at the Dovo Shavette which would allow you to get close to what you like about SR while using an easily replaceable and cheap blade.
