Just a quick post to present myself. I'm from Quebec, Canada. I have been str8 shaving for the last 15 years (since I'm 18). I learned with some cheap SE shavette. Now i shave with a Boker str8 and an Iwasaki kamisori. I have always used soap from some really small local soap maker unavailable on the net. I recently discovered the huge world of artisan made soap and aftershave. Since the last two month, i think I bought 20 soap/AS kit (ok... probably more than that). I'm here because i found on the web that this is a good place to buy/sell/trade some stuff related to wetshaving. So far, I bought some TOOBS, LEA, Tabac, Barrister & Mann, Chiseled Face, RazoRock, Col. Conk, Henri & Victoria, Tcheon Fung Sing & few others. If you guys are willing to mention me some, go ahead. I know that Martin de Candre and Tallow + Steel are the next one on my list (probably T+S first due to price, or MdC if I find a great deal here!)

I bought my first DE safety razor last week, the RazoRock Game Changer. It's a world of difference from str8 shaving, but I think I will like it. I'm also interested in trying a slant in the near future, maybe the wunderbar? Who knows...

Anyways, thanks for having me here!

Hope I will enjoy it,

Hello JustMe, welcome to The Shave Nook. You shouldn't ask the guys on the forum for soap recommendations, unless you plan on purchasing a few hundred more. There are many threads under Soaps & Creams with people listing their top five, top ten, or favorite soaps, so I'd probably have a look there. I shaved with a DE for 50 years, then switched to straights 4 - 5 years ago. Enjoy your adventure.
