Wanted to take a moment to say hi. At 45, I've been shaving a while, but I suspect like many here, most of that time was with a cartridge. I got started with the DE, ironically enough, by researching DSC and Harry's. After using both of those for a short while, my Google-FU kept turning up information on DE Safety Razors.

After an embarrassing amount of time researching, I ended up going with a EJ DE89BL, Col Conk's soap/bowl combo, Perfecto Badger brush, and an assortment of blades (the EJ came with Derby Extra's. I also grabbed some Astra SP's, Feather HS, Wilkinson Sword, and Gillette Platinum). Still working my way through the blades, with the Feather and Astra up next. So far, I like the Derby's overall. The Gillette's left my skin feeling a little burned feeling, the Wilkinsons felt great, but nicked me up a bit. We'll see how the Astra's do today.

Anyway, I've really been enjoying the experience and am spending WAY more time researching this than I'd care to admit in public!  lol!

Thanks for the great resource!
