New member here, referred by your beamon. Rediscovered traditional shaving six years ago this coming January. Have been around the mulberry bush several times -- DE, SE, and finally, straight. Discovered straight shaving mid-year 2016 and never looked back. Here are my preferences:
  • Razor (straight): Kai Captain Excelia, Feather AC DX
  • Blade (straight): Feather Artist Club Pro Super
  • Razor (DE): Above The Tie H2
  • Blades (DE): Indian Greens; Gillette Silver Blues
  • Razor (SE): GEM MicroMatic open-comb
  • Blade (SE): GEM PTFE-coated (also like PAL carbon steel blades -- go figure)
  • Brush: boar all the way -- especially, Omega 10049 and 10098
  • Soap: Mike's; Stirling; Monsavon; Tabac
  • Cream: TOBS (Mr. Taylor, Avocado, Peppermint)
  • Aftershave: Floid, Pinaud, Denim, Master, Osage Rub
Salutations from NYC!

Welcome to TSN! I'm sure you'll get along just fine here. I'm often amazed by how many Straight shavers/threads I see on here. Haven't made the leap myself, but am mulling it over as a possible "days off" hobby. Enjoy the forum!

Great seeing you here, Carl.

We met on some fountain pen boards, years ago. Then, accidently found a mutual interest in wet shaving, so here we are together again. 

Careful though, gents. Carl is a well read att'y who can engage on almost any subject. He'll keep us on the straight and narrow.  A6
