Hello everyone. My name is Steve Arnold. I'm 53 yo, married 32 years as of next month. We have 2 sons, 31 & 26. I, as-well-as our oldest son and others in our family have and still are serving our country. I USMC; Semper Fi,  many moons ago and our oldest son USAF. 


I have got into wetshaving because of the high cost of multi-blade cartridges. Every time I would purchase a set of 4 my stomach would turn. So I thought, there's got to be something better. 

A Google and Amazon search lead me to a basic Proraso kit along with an Edwin Jagger DE razor. After the first couple of shaves, I was hooked. 

My dad and other male members of the family used to shave with DE razors but with the influx of cartridge razor commercials and other advertising, the use of DE razors seemed like it feel of the face of the earth. 

I've joined Bagger and Blade but have not really done anything with it. For the last 6-8 months I've just been observing, listening and watching most of what information that has been put out for the world to see. 

I've posted some of my #SOTD pictures on Twitter @Parrish1088 

I guess I've just been waiting to see which forums and communities I would like to be part of. 

This one along with 1 or 2 others seem to be great at being helpful and not judgmental. At my age I've had enough of the silly BS dealing with people that are idiots. I know most if not all, the people in this community feel the same way. 

So, thanks for allowing me to be part of this community of wet shaving enthusiasts.
