Hello,
I'm Chris from Hampshire, England, and it's a pleasure to join you. I've recently returned to DE shaving after a lapse of some 40 years. Finally learning how to do it properly and it's now a pleasure.

Really got the bug, I'll be looking to add to my fledgling razor collection in future. Wish I'd kept the English Gillette razors my Dad gave me (including "fatboy" adjustable), it will cost a lot to replace them! Have you seen some of the prices on fleabay?

I'm currently using an Edwin Jagger DE Knurled Chrome (highly recommended), just bought a Merkur travel razor (good shave) to take on holiday. Holding off using a recent birthday present '53-'54 Gillette Rocket HD in the hope of finding a local firm (or anyone in the UK at the moment) to replate it. May not resist much longer.

Happy shaving,
Chris

Welcome to TSN, Chris, from another English member, in Surrey.

I haven't used this company, personally, but I know that Ben, from Australia, has used Dave Glynn of restoredrazors.com, here in the UK. Hope this helps.
