Hello All;

My name is Carlos Peña, but everybody calls me Pepe.  I am 47 and work at the District Attorney´s Office of Bayamón, Puerto Rico.

My hobbies are cooking, sailing, reading, and playing bass.  And of course, wet shaving.

Since I got into it late in 2016, I also developed a taste for making aftershave and soap.  Pretty darn good the first, not so good the second, but leaping forward with every batch.

I started as a straight razor shaver.  Well, still am.  The thing is that I shave my face with a straight (neck and cheeks, cause i have a half beard).  BUT, i wouldn't shave the back of my head with one.  So, i bought my first DE safety razor.  A Van Der Haggen at Walgreens for $19.99.  I loved it.  Since then, i got into Barbaros, Rockwell, Merkur, Ikon, Asylum, and am seriously thinking about getting a Timeless.  Maybe the real reason for my DE interest is because when i was a kid, grandpa let us (my brother and me) play with his safety razor and foam.  We would shave sans blade for hours, pretending we were men.

*Significant other claiming my attention... jejeje...

The thing is that so far i like this forum very much.  I expect get to know you all.

Best regards,

Pepe Peña

Hola Pepe...when I think of Puerto Rico and the shaving world, I think of Superior 70!
I know people like to use it in blends, which ties in with something you mentioned.

Thanks Rory. Later today I was planning to shred a bar of tallow soap from my last batch to blend it with one of my cheaper aftershaves (for the scent). I didnt know which one until now. Superior 70 it is. :-)

Thanx tons

The Barbaros and Rocnel, set to 5, simply amazing. All stainless. Heavy! It does all the work.
