Hi everyone,

Not new to shaving but new here. In 2014 I went from Carts to a straight razor and missed the joy of de shaving. I learned all the subtleties like stropping, honing etc. I then realized how much time it was taking me to get the perfect edge. Being an edge snob meant hour + honing sessions to tweak the edge so it got no better. It started to drive me crazy and while I still plan to shave with a straight occasionally I want to use the time I spent fooling around with maintenance etc with my girlfriend and our lovable puppy. Being a new pet parent has been so awesome I don't want to be spending hours honing or playing with the straights. At least for now anyways. An old wrist injury is preventing me from all the joys of straights. 

I have a parker travel razor my girlfriend got for my birthday and now on the way is a fendrihan all stainless de with a 100 pack of GSB's. I've heard nothing but good about these blades. I've tried bic before and they were terrible so hopes are high. 


Hope I can be an asset here. 

Scott

Welcome, Scott!  It will be interesting to see what sort of DE blade an "edge snob" will choose.
