Hey friends,


I am a newbie to wet shaving and straight razors. I bought a Ralf Aust a couple weeks back,
got some Proraso green and a Parker badger brush and now I'm hooked. I live in Yokohama,
Japan but work in Tokyo. Recently, I bought a Kanayama strop at the workshop where they
are made in Tokyo. I am hooked on Japanese razors at the moment, with a Tanifuji Maxfli-Gold
being my current favorite. I certain have a lot to learn but my first forays into the wet-shaving
world did not result in too many weepers (ATG is still a tough proposition). In any case,
glad to meet everyone.

At Tokyu Hands there I was able to source the 4711 Portugal aftershave. Lemony splash. Doesn’t linger. A very good product! I recommend it. Not available anywhere else I looked!

Thank you, Shaun. I will stop by Tokyu Hands tomorrow. Do you recall which branch? Shinjuku? Shibuya? Not all branches have the same stock...
