Hello everyone and thank you for accepting me in this wonderful forum.

I have been a cart shaver all my life, until I became so sick from the carts clogging every time, I thought I would give a Gillette old I had on display a try.
Armed with a few shave videos from u-tube, I proceeded with the Wilkinson blades I could find locally and my Kent best badger brush ( a gift from a friend). (I was always a wet shaver, disliking all these gels e.t.c)
The shave was so satisfying, I ritually binned all the carts on the spot and started reading on the matter.
Now a couple of months into it, I have a collection of DE's I'm proud of but primarily I use the Ikon X3 slant ( I have two in case they decide to discontinue production) and a G3 Fat boy (1961 the year of my birth). These two I place before any other DE I own for being my favorites.
I also put my name down at Connaught's supplies for the soon to be released Ikon SE. My brushes are two Omega synthetic and boar, but I love my new Plisson synthetic I just received a couple of days ago. There is the horse hair one in the mail, but I don't think it will be better than my Plisson.
I'm a divorcee no kids to look after, living together with the girlfriend for the moment and I now work as a violinist in the CYSO.
Before I was the marketing manager of a plastics company that went bankrupt (no fault of mine) due do bad management.
Now I have much more free time to devote to my hobbies of collecting violins, bows, razors and smoking pipes.

Welcome to the forum, nice that you have seen the light, now go and try to convince as many people as you can to take up wet shaving ;-)
