Hello everyone! I'm a noob, looking to trade and sample my way to my perfect shaves. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you in the "internets" here and also ready to gain advice and recommendations from more experienced and knowledgeable wet shavers. I currently use a vintage Gillette Ball End Tech, in gold, with the PAA The Green Ray synth-hybrid brush, and I'm still looking through different blade brands and such. I'm kind of a minimalist when it comes to hardware. I want to have one great and reliable razor, which I may already have, one great luxurious brush, which I may also already have, but I want as many soaps and creams and aftershaves as I can get! So, I look forward to trading and buying and seeing everyone's SOTD's! Happy shaving!

Welcome, Caise. There are heaps of information about wet shaving to be had here. You may find hardware minimalism to be hard to stick to. To find the "ONE" razor (or blade or brush or whatever) you have to try them all! And just to make it even more difficult folks are always offering new or improved ones.

Enjoy.

Dave

I'm in the DFW area and I'd love to hear of shops and things. I do most of my ordering online of course, but I would love to see some shops if that's what you mean.

This brand, L'Occitane has some fantastic soaps, creams, and aftershaves.  If you get a chance visit one of these Nordstrom Stores.

Thanks so much! Are there any local meetings for wetshavers like there are for pipe clubs? I'd be interested in going to one to sniff and trade so to speak. I know the big shave but I cant go to those because I'm still in college.
