I started wet shaving about a month ago, and so far so good.  I look forward to mornings like I never have in the past, and SWMBO wishes I had picked up this new "hobby" years ago so that she didn't have to listen to me hit the snooze button on the alarm clock so many times!  

My starter equipment is a Merkur 20c, Parker Black and Chrome Best Badger Brush, and a Captains Choice Shave Bowl.  My first 2 weeks of shaves were with a Merkur blade, and I have since moved on to an Astra SP.  I've been rotating Captains Choice Bay Rum soap with CRSW v1 Savon No1, and most recently WSP Rustic in Tobacco.  I'm happy with everything so far except for the Parker brush, I find it very floppy and a bit of a lather hog.  My next investment, aside from lots of shave soap samples, will be a new brush.

I can already see that this "hobby" that I convinced my wife would save money in the long run, is not going to do that with all of the things I want to buy.

Happy Shaving!
John
