Hey everyone, I've been wet shaving for a little over four years now. I started with a Merkur 23c and a terrible Escali badger brush. I moved onto an Omega boar and pretty much lived off of those items (plus Stirling samples) for nearly four years. Yep, even 3-4 Stirling samples lasted me four years, because I've always had a beard and only trimmed my neck and cheeks. 

Only recently did I need to finally re-up from my samples and I decided to upgrade my gear while I was at it. I've since sort of fallen into the rabbit hole, so to speak. 

I've gotten lost in the overwhelming tidal wave of artisan soaps, splashes, balms, salves, etc. I love interesting and unique scents, so that has been a hole that I'm trying not to fall TOO far in...

Gear-wise, I still try to keep it simple and on the budget end. I never really want to have more than 2-3 razors and 2-3 brushes at a time. I'm pretty happy with a synthetic, nice badger, adjustable razor, and some kind of wildcard razor or two. 

Right now, my favorite products are Barrister's Leviathan and Cheshire.

Look forward to being part of the community and contributing where I can! Thanks!

"Tidal wave" is pretty accurate. That's what I thought also. Welcome.
