Just a note to say Hi.  I have been a wet shaver fundamentally all of my adult life.  I did take a 20 year break when wearing a full beard from the start of college until skin cancer caught up with me in my late 30's.  The skin grafts on my cheek now makes a full beard rather "patchy".  It was interesting having to learn to shave on a daily basis for the first time when deep into middle age. Everyone I asked at the time (late 90's) was using cartridges so I just joined the crowd.  I have recently (as in this week) decided to go back to DE razors after realizing that I was always shaving on dull cartridges -- every time I went to load a new one in my razor,  the package in my vanity drawer was empty as my wife or daughter had cleaned me out.  I have no illusions that my wife and daughter won't just switch to using a DE razor also, as I seem to be the only one that ever buys blades, but be at least it will be much easier to have a sharp one on hand when I buy them a hundred at at time instead of in 5 packs.

I found this site when looking for advice on razors.  Based on comments in the forums, I have ordered a Timeless and a Blackbird as I like made in the USA artisanal products.  I look forward to trying them and other new kit as it comes out.  I am a lurker my nature and thus rarely join forums.   That said, I thank all the active posters and look forward to participating in the community.

Hello Ron, welcome to The Shave Nook. I am definitely old school, and a couple of shaving forums are the only forums I've ever participated in. However, I do feel right at home discussing razors, soaps, brushes, and blades with the nice folks that hand out here. I hope that you enjoy the forum.
