Hi all

I thought I would take a moment to just say a quick hello. My names Paul and I live in Devon in the UK I have been de shaving for a couple of years nearly now I did take a break for a few months, I still class myself as a little bit green I struggle to get a really good lather sometimes and the terms sometimes confuse me. I have a few different brushes and razor wise I have a futur, progress (from one of the forums members thank you), fatboy a merkur 38c and a muhle r41 grande. Im after a birth year razor 1982 and currently looking for someone to make a custom brush i have an idea for so and suggestions of people would be grateful.

Thank You

Paul, I too am still figuring out lather (mainly when I venture into a product I have never used before), and have a Progress LH.

Plenty of good folks here to learn from, dive into the reviews left by various members, and the Nook University section

they were offered a while back as a limited buy...

I use mine for coffee, but I am sure some of the folks use their mugs for shaving.

Paul, welcome to The Shave Nook. We are glad you're here.

As for as custom brushes, if I lived in the UK, I would get this member to make me a brush. He does excellent work.

Hi! Hope you enjoy your stay.

Beejay is worth the wait so be patient!

Also good luck with the search for an 80's de. My year is 1983 and the youngest de I have is 1980. It took ages to find!
