Hello forum.  Actually joined Sunday but just found activation email in my junk folder.

I began shaving as a teen many decades ago.  My first razor was a refurbished Norelco that my father gave me, but I think I ditched that very quickly.  It just irritated me, and I found an old brass three-piece in a drawer and started using that with Wilkinson blades I also found somewhere nearby.  Sometime later, not sure, I started using cartridge razors, whatever the current Gillette cartridge at the time.  Over the following decades I tried electric again and again quit electric, and did that several time.  I would switch between canned product and soap and brush off an on, even though using a cartridge razor.  This was up until maybe 10 years ago.

I didn't think much about the cost of cartridges, but my wife would remark on it.  So I bought a razor and blades and started DE again, and then eventually converted her back to DE. 

So, I'm not that big into soaps and creams.  I found MWF a long time ago and it was a big improvement for me, and I've stuck with it.  I've changed razor every few years, and I'm using a brass Karve with OC-D plate now.  I like different shaving brushes and I rotate among about a dozen now.   Same with blades, I probably have enough of different brands for three lifetimes and I rotate among them.  Finally, I stick with simple Bay Rum aftershave.  I wish Dominca would be available again, but for now I use Grand Bay.

My interest in joining here is to partly to get my fix reading about shaving and pick up on any news, and partly because I like helping newbies, but I will probably lurk for a while.
