I have been wet shaving for about 2 years and I am absolutely addicted to it.  My wife thinks I have a problem and I am obsessed. LOL!!!  I tell her it is a hobby just like fishing or golfing.  I have tried and purchased most of the soaps and creams and have tried and purchased pretty much every aftershave as well.  2 years in and I am still fired up about it.  I was able to pick up a Wolfman .74 last week from the Wolfman website luckily so I am extremely fired up for that to come in.  I also have a Timeless .95 SB, .68SB, Charcoal Goods Antique Bronze Level 2, Above the Tie all Cooper Winsor. I have just gotten into some higher end badgers and just ordered a Simpson Best Chubby 1 and 2 and a Paladin.  I have been a member of Badger and Blade for about 2 years and finally joined TSN.  Taylor of Old Bond St. Sandalwood Cream and Proraso Green and a Muhle Grande R89 where my first creams and razor that got me absolutely hooked.  TOBS Sandalwood and Proraso Green Creams will always have a special place in my den. 

Looking forward to talking shop with you all on here!

Happy Shaving!!!!

Thanks so much for the kind words!  I will put those 2 on my list.  Looks like Declarations are hard to get.  I guess you just keeping checking the website for stock?

Happy Shaving!!!

I gave up on trying to buy one from Scott, so I bought a beautiful handle from Dogwood, had it shipped to Declaration, where Scott installed the knot and shipped it to me. It, and my M&F, are my favorite brushes. (Although I certainly enjoy my Simpsons and Paladin, and plan to buy another Paladin soon.)

Thank you sir!  I might do that as well with a handle and then send it to Scott for the knot.  Where is the best place to purchase a M&F?  Which one do you have?  I like to face lather and I like a pretty strong backbone as well.

Brad Sears is the M&F vendor. He creates the handle, ships it to Lee Sabini in England, who installs the M&F knot and ships it back to Brad, who then ships it to you. Brad also has stock on hand. In my den, my Brad Sears brush has the strongest backbone. (Brad created both the handle and the knot.) Of course, you’ll need a Brad Sears brush as well. Tremendous brush.
