I found Shave Nook while I was researching a new Simpson brush a few weeks ago and I'm glad that I did. I've been a wet shaver since i got drafted into the army 43 years ago. I was taught how to make beautiful lather from a puck of Williams soap with a Burma Shave brush by a drill Sargent who had learned it from his Sargent. I still have that mug and brush and still make a lather from Williams from time to time just to remember
   I mainly use pre ww2 tech razors with a Merkur 33c and a Merkur Bakelite thrown in to the mix.
   I have an old Casewll Massey Badger, a small Casswell Massey travel Badger,and I just have gotten a Simpson Milk Churn best badger. I only have two mugs right now beside the old one from the army. One is a
Plain white Italian mug that I've had for about 20 years. The other I just got is the large Simpson mug. It is BIG! A real lather factory! I can make enough for at least 3or 4 passes if needed plus shaving my head daily. A beautiful mug,
   Even though I have been a wet shaver for so very long I can see by what I have read so far on this forum that there is much that I can learn and many new friends that I can make. Thank you all for including me in your group

Welcome! Can't wait to hear your Williams lathering tips (I've been playing around with it a bit).
