Hi, my name is Robin.

I'm a 45 year old security consultant from Germany. Grew up near Solingen, still visit the area occasionally.

Started wet shaving with a Merkur Progress in 2004. Switched to cut-throat razors in 2005, and hardly ever looked back. Stumbled across single edge ("SE") razors in 2013, and finally made my peace with wet shaving. Most of the time, I use an OCMM these days, with the occasional cut-throat shave thrown in for street credibility.

Used to live more or less next door to Germany's best stocked shaving shop, and was allowed to take home samples over the weekend. Meaning, I have seen almost everything there is to see in terms of shaving software.

Used to be an active member over at coticule.be while it lasted, and it was tremendous fun.

Used to be someone over at The Straight Razor Place, but went separate ways peacefully several years ago.

Used to run a website with opinionated blogs, but blogs are just so passé.

So, here I am. If I come across as divisive and destructive, that's because a) I am German, and b) English is my fourth language. It is not intentional. I don't speak your wonderful language too well, for which apologies.

Really like this site, and hope many, if not all, of you can see past the language barrier and find the odd peace of (I hope, good) advice. 

Thanks many to Johnny and the other moderators for running a site like this. You guys are doing a good job here.

Best regards,
Robin
