Hope you’re all doing well today! I’m Taylor, and I’m very new to the world of wet shaving (despite joining the hobby at 30 years of age). I’m still using cartridges, but have recently moved and accepted employment at a more conservative location which requires daily shaves. I’m now in the market to “save money” by making this one of my buy-it-for-life hobbies.

I’m hoping to pick up a nice DE (or maybe SE) razor (as well as a decent shaving brush) to accompany me on this journey and make the best of the B&M/A&E soaps I have ordered.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing my Taylor guitar (despite the never ending “dude you got your name on your guitar?” comments), visiting breweries, watching TV, and hanging out with my lovely wife.

Thank you sincerely for having me here and allowing me access to this wealth of knowledge!

Taylor, welcome to TSN.  It so happens that I have an old Taylor AB2 Fretless Bass Guitar that I bought new about 22 years ago.

Taylor, welcome to TSN. And ADs. As a fellow guitarist I can assure you there’s a direct correlation between GAS and RAD/BAD/SSAD/etc. Enjoy Smile

It’s probably a really bad sign that I was was able to guess all three of the initialisms without having read them yet. Acquisition syndrome is rooouugh. Thanks for your support (and for helping bring down the cost for the rest of us through your unavoidable purchases)!
