Hi everyone.

I've been a member of B&B for some time now but am looking to join an American forum to see if the experience is any different.

By way of introduction, I've been wet shaving for a couple of years.  During that time, I've picked up the occasional DE razor, some new and some vintage, and a modest collection of brushes.  I've enjoyed going through a lot of different pre-shave oils, shaving creams, blades, aftershaves, balms, moisturizers and colognes, always looking for "The One" in each category.  At this point, I definitely have my favorites, but I still put new products in the rotation just for fun and I'm always open to suggestion, especially when it comes to aftershaves (for which I have a particular weakness).

In addition, I recently picked up a straight razor.  I'm improving every day but it's definitely trickier than I had anticipated.  

I'm lucky in that the kids are grown and out of the house so I was able to convert our guest bathroom into Downing's Shave Den.  No competition for counter space, and no one but me touches my gear.

I promise to always play nice, be respectful and never preach that my way's the only way so your way must be wrong.  I'm a big believer in whatever works for you, works for you and what works for me, works for me.  Having said that, I love being exposed to different ideas and points of view.
