I recently switched to wet shaving with the untimely death of my old Norelco. I happened to find my fathers old kit and got a wild hair to try it out. From there I had a small bout with acquisition disease and my collection of stuff has blossomed. Currently I am transitioning from Double Edged to Straights Dad had one of each in his kit, but his old Graef & Schmidt was nowhere near sharp enough to shave with but foil blades are pretty easy to find and there is a Sally close by so I got some Derby blades and an el-cheapo brush. i am now officially hooked because of the ritual involved and, being retired, I have the time to pamper myself a little bit. I've gotten a couple of Gold Dollars modified and honed and they haven't maimed me, not has a little shavette I use to hone my technique. The Shavette is a heartless taskmaster and will indeed punish any mistakes so I think I will get skills fast or end up looking like Noriega!
I am happy to make your acquaintance and will be in and out picking up tips and stuff to perfect my craft that I may pass them on to the next generation.
