My name is Enrico. my return to wet shaving after some 40 years of carts and beards (mostly beards). I still have my beard as i develop my technique on the tenderest area of my face ie. to the left and right of the adams apple. I will shave it all in the spring as my techniques improve. I am still searching for that elusive proper blade angle while on my sloping neck with the razor upside down or sideways...any ideas on achieving consistency with that delicate movement appreciated. I started with a qshave Futur, followed by vintage gillettes, a gold superspeed TTO, a gold fat handle tech, and a nickel slim adjustable. right now astra gives me a consistent (based on developing technique) smooth and irritation free shave. i picked up two shaver heaven soaps in the clearance bin at pasteur's pharmacy in NYC, Aladdin and sweet almond. the only place in the shave world where vintage becomes clearance. i picked up two brushes on ebay. genuine silver tip badger knots with a beautiful black and silver handle. under $20 shipped. actually i wouldnt know genuine silver tip from barber clippings so...anyway the brush is fantastic (again not much to compare it to) I make a huge amount of slick cushiony lather in my bowl very quickly.

Welcome, Enrico. Lots of shaving wisdom available here. I hope you enjoy it.

I lived in New Haven and Branford back in the early 70s.
