Hey everyone, I'm new here...

I've been DE shaving for about 5 years now, and until a couple months ago I was still using the same gear I started with.  But it was getting boring.  So I branched out and tried some new razors, bought a new brush and some artisan soaps, and now I'm starting to join these sorts of message boards to gain some more knowledge and insight.

My current standard setup is up in the air right now (I'm not a collector, so I'll only keep one or two razors and I'm finally starting to settle on a couple).  Currently my Muhle R41 (2013) is getting a lot of action, and so is my ATT H2 (but I have an H1 landing in a couple days as I've found ATT's OC to be a bit more than I am ready for - I keep stabbing my adam's apple with it).  My brush is a Simpson Chubby 1 in Best (since I'm a face-lather'er, it really performs well for me), but I've got my eye out for a Chubby 2 in Best or Synthetic.  And as for soap, my standards are Proraso in green and white (love them both), but I've been experimenting lately with some samples from Stirling to get my feet wet.

So, hello!

I'm a vintage guy (gillette), but looking to try a Fat Tip Grande or an Ikon slant soon. I'm very leery of razors made of zamak, but am slowly warming up to try a merkur 34c or an EJ. I agree with you, there is always something to learn. Have fun!

I finally quit lurking and joined a few days ago myself. Boy do we have a lot in common. I used a 2013 R41 7 days weeks until a couple of months ago; switched to Rockwell. I have both the Chubby 2 in best and synthetic. I like my synthetic brushes the best. Stirling soaps are wonderful.
