It's great to be here! I'm from Istanbul, Turkey and for anyone who has ever traveled here, you'd know what I mean when I say, we take our shaving very seriously. In fact, some would say it's a national sport...  Biggrin  Old school barbers and the cut throat razor is as ingrained in Turkish culture as Turkish coffee and Turkish delight.

Besides the part time job of keeping my own beard trimmed and proper, I run an online handmade leather company, Galen Leather. You may or may not have heard of us, but we produce a range of leather goods for the daper gentleman, including our popular handmade leather shaving kits and accessories. I'm also an avid collector of fountain pens and other random vintage stationery, which no suprise, I've noticed a number of you are here too. Seems to be a trend.

Gorgeous city Istanbul. Every time I’ve visited I’ve returned back home wanting more.

Welcome aboard Yusuf.  I have friends that have been in Turkey.  Was talking to one of them recently about how if he ever gets back to treat himself to a shave there.
