I don't remember how I stumbled across the world of wet shaving, but I think it started with a brush.  Research on what makes a good brush lead to switching from a gel to a cream, then more research on DE razors, then SE razors. Certainly, I am not the first person to feel this way, but it is as if I have been transported back to my youth, learning how to shave all over again.  There is a lot about shaving my dad never taught me because he has used an electric razor as long as I have been alive.  

I think cartridge and electric razors have become popular because the desired results are speed and convenience, not a close shave and good skin health. Perhaps one day when, out of necessity, people will have to think more frugally and become less wasteful, wet shaving will become the mainstream method. Other than using more water, this style of shaving seems to create less waste (paper, plastic, and metal) and doesn't use electricity. I look forward to learning from the experiences and knowledge of others here on this site. I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Welcome to the Nook, Utah person.

I read your two paragraphs, and they were interesting. They were very good.

Welcome to TSN! I grew up in Utah and have since moved to the Northeast.  Most days I miss the mountains of Utah and all the fabulous outdoor things there are to do out there.
