Hello everyone.

Dear gentlemen, first of all, please excuse me for my poor English, and if I make any mistake or I write incorrectly, because english is not my mother tongue, and I have not much skill to write. I'm Spanish. I live in Barcelona, Spain, and I decided to join this community to learn and share with you my progress in classical shaving.

Let me share with you the memory of my firsts classical shaves around 40 years ago. Standing on a stool in front of the mirror and porcelain sink with taps those cross, armed of the safety razor without blade of my father and the Myrurgia soap stick. Lathering and lathering with a brush, a lot of passes with the safety razor. I do not remember how many passes I did, but I think that was enough, because my mother had to come to finish by force. Unfortunately, when I needed to really start shaving, my father had left the safety razor, and I began with Gillette G2. Then I was going to Contour, Sensor, and Mach3. Now I've been shaving with safety razors for a few months and I am delighted. I like it.

Kind Regards, my friends

It's great to have you in the Nook. English is my mother tongue and I still write incorrectly and make plenty of mistakes. I'm sure you'll be just fine.
