Good evening gentlemen (and ladies), I have lurked this forum on and off for quite a while, but as you only live once I have decided to join. I have been what we refer to as traditional shaving now for some 8 years. I take no responsibility for the amount of money I have spent, as it was my wife who first suggested it after seeing a thread on a Money Saving Website(!?) Oh the irony. I am a pretty much confirmed DE shaver, with a preference for Gillette TTO's. I like the engineering and the mechanics and still get a childish thrill overtime I open the doors to load a new blade. I prefer Russian blades and badger brushes, mainly Simpson's, though not exclusively. I use both soaps and creams which I predominantly face lather. My top 3 are Tabac, Speick & Institut Karite. I like aftershaves and have a particular hotspot for Pinaud products.

On a personal level, I am kicking 50, in the military, married and enjoy bad films, terrible music, single malts, the odd cigar, nice shoes and watches.

Thanks for your time.

Many thanks, one and all. Just need to find my feet before imparting some lack of wisdom around the place.

Welcome! 50 and in the military, that means almost done and then you'll have a sea of time and you'll buy lots and lots of shaving stuff. I know from experience  Wink
