Hi all,

My name is Eric.
I have been DE shaving for about a month or two now.

I have shaved in the past with the cartridge stuff and switched back and forth with electric because it was expensive and I had some razor burn.

I kinda stumbled into DE because I was looking at the cheaper Dorco shaving stuff. And saw that they had a safety razor. I really liked the idea that I am only running one blade across my face instead of 5, multiple times.

So I did some digging and wow, is it a deep rabbit hole! Lots of info out here in the web, full of videos, guides, and opinions.

Armed with a little bit more knowledge, I jumped into DE shaving with a Merkur 34C, TOBS Mr. Taylor's shaving cream, a simple Omega boar brush, and a sample blade pack. I used aftershave balm (Dove) from before for the time being. The experience was night and day. I mean, it's not as close cause I was scared of cutting myself, but it was a more enjoyable experience. And I had no razor burn!

Looking forward to learning more, and perhaps trying a straight edge some day!
