I'll be away from home for some time and my shaving equipment will be a Schick, two shaving sticks (La Toja & Arko), a synthetic Omega, my homemade toner and a Korres balm. I've been using these products exclusively for a week with great results. Trust me, they're all amazing products.

Taking a break is sometimes unavoidable.

The good thing is that thanks to forum members and friends I was able to downsize my shaving stuff to some degree.

The used items, mainly brushes and some soaps, will remain in one of my bathrooms, I don't care a lot about them, but decided to safely pack all the unused products and those that are of high value to me. I didn't want to take the risk of losing them. If I don't enjoy them myself, then I'm sure that someone else in my family will do so.

With a few exceptions, a trained eye will get it, most items are affordable, but perform greatly. Hopefully I will revisit them in the future.

Thank you everyone.

It was fun.

I truly enjoyed the seven-year journey and my presence here. 

All the best,

Sorry to see you go, hope you'll be back.

Bon voyage (and I'm sure the minimalistic shaving will be interesting in its own way).

Taking a break in terms of buying new stuff or from the forum Nikos. Hope its not the latter.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the razor glide upon your stubble.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again.

Nikos, I was thinking about you today.  My son is flying out of Austin, TX as I type on his way to Athens, Greece.

Good fortune to you in whatever your ventures are.  Hope to see you back here on The Nook.  God speed my friend.

I looked forward to reading all your posts.  Nice combination of educational or thought provoking.  A reduction in shaving gear does not mean a reduction in your valuable posts.

sometimes life takes us all away from the things we love and deposits us on soil unfamiliar but, it's still worth the journey in most cases.
Enjoy the change

Thank you all for your kind words. It means a lot.

I'll be working on a project for a little less than a year. I started this thread because I receive PMs from time to time and if I stop replying all of a sudden, I don't want anyone to believe that I'm doing that on purpose or there's something going on. That's all.

Shaving will remain a part of my daily routine, I assure you for that, but it stops being a hobby of mine.

There are many members that mention my thought provoking threads. I am not that surprised to be honest with you and I really hope I didn't make enemies because of them or I insulted anyone. It certainly wasn't my intention to make you feel bad or awkward, people who know me better understand that. It's just my type sometimes and please remember that English is not my mother tongue but a second language for me. Not an excuse, but let's say it plays a role.
