Dear Shaving-Aficionado's:

  Greeting you from the German capital, Berlin. I am of Dutch origin but lived throughout Europe and in Japan. From each culture I am trying to pick the best what is available, learning from slowly matured traditions and the fine hands of craftsmen – ranging from wet shaving, specialised cooking, boiling tea and so on. I am in my mid-30s, always practiced wet shaving, but only since about five years developing it into a more refined and attentive routine. I am a philosopher, novelist, and psychotherapist.
 
  I came across ‘The Shave Nook’ by recommendation of a friend, this was about six months ago. I became frustrated by the ‘tribunal’-like forums elsewhere (sometimes it seems you are doing everything wrong by the self-proclaimed ‘God’s of Shaving’, and an ‘act of manliness’ is supposed to be: sharp knives, raw meat and putting on razor cream as thick as an elephant’s skin). My friend suggested me to look on this forum. In the past months, I lurked through the discussions to sharpen my routine and to get a feeling of the forum itself before I decided to join – and I am very positive as the forum is very mature, the respectful replies and the high level of discussion.
 
  Hope to contribute to the community positively and to learn from you all!
 
     Let’s shave,
               Denkie

Hiya, Denkie!
This forum is all about Acts of Manliness, so be prepared.  I recommend manly shaving acts like (1) making motorboat sounds as you chug around your face with the razor (2) slapping on far too much shaving cream, then admiring your faux lathery beard in the mirror while exclaiming a jolly "Ho, Ho, Ho!" in the spirit of the season, (3) if you nick or cut yourself, you prance around like a girl hollering "Owie!  Owie!  Owie!" while holding your face and scrambling to find a Spongebob Squarepants band-aid (which doesn't really help, but makes you feel better).  At least that was MY strategy... and still is...
   :-)
WELCOME!
