Hi. My name is Brian. I'm an older guy (57), and always used the cheapest razor I could afford but did like the 4 or 5 blade cartridge type for a while. But I didn't like the razor burn I was getting with them. I decided to start DE shaving about 10 years ago and bought a Merkur Vision DE razor and a Saville Row brush. Tried the DE razor for a while, but kept getting nicks and got tired of looking like a leopard. So I quit and bought a Braun Series 7 electric razor and used that for several years. 
But the cost of buying a new shaving head for those has gotten unreal. I always liked the way wet shaving felt, just not the nicks, so I decided to give it another try. So far, so good. I've only gotten a few nicks since I started back up, and getting fewer as I go. I'm starting to get the hang of it. 
Once I get the Double Edge razor down without any nicks or cuts, I want to get into straight razor shaving. But I don't think I want to just jump right into that if I can't handle a DE that well. lol So, I've come to learn from the gurus. lol Thanks for having me.

Welcome Brian.  The Vision is a pretty neat razor (I started with the Futur), but if you are still getting nicks maybe give another DE razor a try.  Lots of good affordable options out there.  Glad you joined the team!
