...this was going to be a new addiction! Hey everyone!

I picked (back) up wet shaving about a month ago. I was tired of ingrowns and razor burn from the electric. I was a cartridge wet shaver for years until switching to electric about 3 years ago. Now I find my self doing one of two things: 1) searching the internet for my next target razor or 2) waiting for my facial hair to grow.

I've been trying some new artisan soaps and aftershaves- Cold River and Mike's are in my on deck circle. Although not artisan, I have been a big fan of Taylor of Old Bond and Lather & Wood (both Sandlewood). Not to mention the Lucky Tiger splash.

When I'm not shaving or planning to spending money on this new interest. I'm a Dad to two girls (soon to be 3), Mountain Bike, hack photographer and collect pocket knives. Looking forward to learning from you guys and sharing along the way.

Jackson.

PS- neck irritation is nearly all gone. Been rotating use of Jack Black Bump Fix on non-shave days until the irritation is all gone. Seems to be helping the repair.

Seems like RAD has struck you already. If you haven't spent all your money yet, BAD is just around the corner to do just that.

Hey Jackson -- I'm new to the forum myself, though I've been wet shaving for many years now. It is terribly addictive, RAD, BAD ... not to mention soaps and creams. Sooner or later you may get into straight razor shaving, as I have. I've got about 40 double edge razors and maybe a dozen straight razors. Not to mention over a thousand bucks in hones and associated gear. So yeah, it's pricey, but a helluva lot of fun. Looking forward to talking to all you gents and trading thoughts. Andy

No safe queens. They all get wet, some more frequently than others. This one's my grandfather's birth year. It's been a great way to remember him.

4, 2.5 and due in June. Yikes! Claiming some of my manliness back with wet shaving. At least that's what I tell myself as I'm getting my fingernails painted.
