You find me around the internet if you Google, and even in some of the other shaving forums, but I have not been active in them recently.

Over ten years ago I became dissatisfied with cartridge razor shaving and gave up when Gillette put the price up again.

As my beard got older, whiter and tougher the Mach 3 was proving useless. I read on the web that some men were taking up or returning to DE razors.

I used a pretty standard drug store TTO till my mid 20s before moving to a twin blader. I never gave up my brush and soap - I thought the new lubricants useless.

In mid 50s I bought a Merkur HD and soon graduated to a long handled Merkur Slant with Feather blades. I have used that daily with Taylor Cream for years.

Now I have retired I don't shave every day and my beard is even tougher.

I am trying the Muhle R41 open comb head.

Thank for the welcome. No great history. I found what worked for me, and stuck with it - not like some butterflies!

But with the years, retirement and changing expectations on grooming for men of all ages, I thought an open comb might suit me better than my trusty Slant.

(I hope I have remedied the problem with posting images, and that you can all see them.)
