Hi All,
Looks like a very active and helpful Forum. Very much looking forward to my experience with you all in the Forum.

Just started shaving again with a straight razor after 40+ years.

My Father started me out with a straight razor at 16 in the States...and SR 'd it for several years. However, once I became a cadet and went training camp...to my surprise, the morning schedule was very "inconsiderate and unaccommodating " to SR shavers, giving only 5 sinks for 30 guys in 30 minutes. I drew many looks of amazement at first with the SR, but that quickly turned into impatience as it required more time for me, than others, at the sink :/ ....so that's when I made the switch "under duress", to cartridge.

Shaved with a cartridge continuously from then on  ....up until c. 3 months ago...and now back shaving with my Grandfather's SR, as well as a few others. 

Just getting started with SR honing now, and love it.

Happy to say our two sons are now also in the "SR club" as of last month, carrying on the tradition.

Retired military now living in Ireland, and, welcome you to make a visit... 

- Rico

Rico, welcome to TSN.  I still shave with a Schick Injector that my father gave me for my 15th birthday and bird hunt with a shotgun that belonged to my grandfather.  I will be 75 in a few months to give you and idea how old these items are.  Thanks for your military service.

Thank you for your welcome thread Johnny.  Yes i remember those Schick injectors ! Believe i cut myself with one (my father's)  by playing around with it as a kid :/ 

Nice feeling and reliving good memories I imagine for you, with the Schick razor your father gave you, and, hunting with your grandfather's shotgunSmile

RE: your "Thanks..." :   I appreciate you saying that Johnny.

All the very best!
