Hello all,

New to this forum, but I've been using a DE safety razor for 20+ years. I've lurked on various shaving/razor forums over the years, but this is the first one I've joined.

I'm recently retired after about 15 years working for a slot machine manufacturer in Las Vegas, NV. I'm currently living with my sister in Kingman, Arizona.

I've been using Merkur razors for most of the time I've been using DE razors. I typically shave every other day, or even every third day, and my routine is usually a first pass with the Futur, and then following up with a second pass with the 33 (aka 163) for under my nose and other tight places.

Since retiring, I've been on a bit of a spending spree on Amazon, and have bought several different manufacturers twist-to-open models, including a Parker 87R and a Viking. (To be honest, after removing these two from their respective packaging, I can't tell them apart...) Prior to this, I've bought a few items on a whim, including a Feather AS-D1. My most recent impulse buy (this morning) was an ATT R1 with Colossus handle.

I'm looking forward to learning a lot from everyone here.

Kingman AZ; birthplace of Andy Devine who would nail traveling salesmen's sample valises to the trainstation wooden boarding platform just before they walked out of the coffeehouse to board. He was the only actor in Hollywood who could drive a six in hand and gained recognition  in STAGECOACH.  He acquired his voice  from an accidental throat injury as a kid and in spite of his weight  a highly skilled skier and swimmer. I met him at a public pool. Manager wouldn't let some Chicano kids swim. Andy got mad, pushed him in and invited those kids to his place anytime after his pool was repaired.
oh, welcome to the forum.
