Long time reader. Just realized I never introduced myself.

Member of The Nook since 2012. This is only my 4th post.
More to come!

I've been wet shaving with DE razors for the past 7 or 8 years. Collecting them since then too. 
My story isn't much different than a lot of everyone else's. I got fed up with the expense and poor results of cartridges. One day I found safety razors. My first DE razor was an Edwin Jagger. EJDE89L.
I always had a brush. Used it 99% of the time since first shaving with a Trac II and Sensor. When I discovered the joys of traditional shaving with DE razors my second epiphany was software. Soap oh the soap. I'm not a big fan of after shaves or pre shaves. I am guilty of splashing the Aqua Velva on a few times a week though. Soaps are my real soft spot and I have tried a few. When all else fails I "use more product."

I joined TSN one night in 2012 and made two comments about a razor handle and then forgot I had an account here. I just noticed the other night when my browser offered to log me in with my saved username and password. Awesome!!

So here I am. 
My wife and I have a baby girl who was born in September 2015. Our first. We've been married since 2005 and have two dogs.

I've had my battles with RAD, SAD, and most recently BAD. Just taking it one day at a time and having fun.

My username is just a play on words. 
I work at a bakery-> baker + I'm all bald on top and haven't paid for a haircut in years, So I'm my own-> barber. I've used it as my handle since long before getting into wet shaving. Mostly on a forum that is dedicated to Snus. My other guilty pleasure. 

I don't know too many people in person who care about this sort of thing, so when I have a little free time I enjoy reading other's posts. I especially love seeing pictures!
