Hi everyone my name is John I’m fairly new to DE and straight razor wet shaving but I’m hooked I absolutely love everything about it and look forward to my shave routine every night after I take a shower. I started in around November 2017 and then got my first real safety razor and nice’ish brush for Christmas this year (2017) and it took me forever to find the right blade and razor combos but I’ve pretty much got it down now Astra SP for everyday and a Feather hi-stainless if I’m feeling froggy. Then there was learning to lather correctly at first I only bowl lathered and made some beautiful lather but never could get it to go on that pretty so I tried face lathering and it changed my world but I’m still learning new techniques and tricks all the time some help some don’t but I try them all and have a nice collection of razors, soaps, & a few decent brushes in my opinion since I’ve only been at it a few months but by far my Simpson chubby 2 manchurian with tortoise handle is my pride and joy..... other than shaving I’m really into cars and motorcycles and have a 2013 Zl1 and a 2016 hyabusa nitrous bike that I like to go to the race track with the Camaro is just for fun don’t race it unless a 18 year old gets beside me on the highway and thinks because I’m in my mid 30’s I’ll just get pushed around lol.. but I’m thrilled to be here I know that was a long rant but it’s my first post and I promise any other post will be short and to the point thanks guys have a great shave, John
