I am pleased to be a new member!

I have been wet shaving for 55 years. My father worked for Gillette for a number of years as an engineer in product development, and when he passed, I inherited his collection of razors and products. There was little he didn't know about razors, blades and overall shaving knowledge. Fortunately, we were close, and he imparted much of that information to me. Many years ago I was a contributing editor writing a number of articles about shaving for the Gillette company newsletter.

Over the years I have added to my collection which numbers in the hundreds including many vintage sharpening devices and other vintage accessories.

I enjoy wet shaving, usually shaving morning and evening, enjoy the ritual and variation, and use virtually all of the shaving tools from DE/SE, carts of every flavor, disposables and most everything in between except straight razors of which I know little about, never having had an interest.

Welcome to TSN. Maybe you could be persuaded to post some articles on your collection.

My Dad was a dyed in the wool, two shaves a day, Gillette user. I'm also a Gillette fan, although unfortunately I don't have the razors he passed to me when I started shaving. I'm working my way back up to them.

Regards,
Chris

Hello, welcome to The Shave Nook. I learned to shave from my father and grandfather nearly 53 years ago, and have been wet shaving ever since.
