Hi all.  I'm Eric from Encinitas, CA (SoCal).   Cool

I discovered wet shaving a few years ago after decades of abuse with the Mach III razors, always leaving my skin inflamed and irritated.  I didn't know what I was missing until I randomly stumbled across a thread on double safety razors.  I'm using a basic Merkur 34C razor and love the TOBS shaving cremes, and Speick after shave.  I also use a bunch of others including Lucky Tiger, D.R. Harris Sandalwood, and Captain's Choice Bay Rum.  I like to try new things and learn more, and look forward to chatting with you all.

Cheers,
Eric

Thank you for the warm welcome, fellas!  
Don't worry, I won't tease any of you about the weather.  It's been pretty crappy here lately, nothing but 70s every day.   Tongue

Thank you, fellas!
I tried a new brush this morning, a Simpson Commodore X3 Best Badger.  First impressions...  I've been using a Badger & Blade Omega Blonde Boar for years and like a stiffer brush, so it took some getting used to the much softer Simpson.  It didn't lather as well as the B&B, but felt good on the face.  I plan to keep it in the rotation and give it some time.
