I have been using brush and bowl for a few months. Got my 1st DE last week. (Parker 96R). Already tracked down a 59' FATBOY and have received 2 packages in the mail... I've been cruising all the local drug stores and found myself in an antique shop Saturday. (Scored some very old blades).. So this is the nook of a newborn babe.. With the face as smooth as a newborns butt...lol... So please tell me, do I have the disease? IS THIS HOW IT BEGINS????

Before long in order to SAVE money on razor cartridges you will be taking down walls,expanding bathrooms,hiding supplies in a storage locker and maxing out every credit card you have. Packages will be arriving daily by USPS,UPS and FedEX.No shelf will be strong enough or large enough to display your collection.Cameras will be needed and multiple e-mail accounts to both track and order packages. Your wife will think you are engaging in on-line sex because you spend so much time on the computer.But just think you will have saved $50.00 a year on blades. So my advice....seek out a good shrink and be heavily medicated to beat this new addiction.Tongue

Amen! My postmaster, postman, UPS man, Fed-ex men all know me by my first name and the antique store and auction houses know me only too well for the health of my pocket book! Medications in bottles also can be called apres shave products..no help there either! And.....I am considered to be Mr Cheap! My shrink, Lord bless him, is now a wet shave convert...

When she came into my study one Saturday afternoon as I was looking at some particularly lovely brush photos, my wife said to me "Why can't you look at porn like other men"?

To the original poster, Your starting out with a great kit, congratulations!

Hey everyone, I kinda already knew the answer to my own question...
The wife already is wondering about time spent on the computer checking out all the wet shave vendors... Had to carry in my last acquisitions in my back pack.. Soon she will wonder why I'm taking it into the bathroom..... Guess I'll have to set my new stuff outside on the bathroom window sill and bring the contraband thru the window... That should work at least for a while....lol

Exactly the way and you may as well be blunt with the missus and start saving your pennies. Hee hee. Good luck.

You really have no idea what this can turn in to. Oh, and there is a cure, though I do not recommend it. It's death. Tell the wife you are building inheritance goodies for future grandsons.

My friend, you are definitely on the slippery slope and heading downhill. The good part is that it's a great ride and everything can be resold should you desire that. Enjoy it! You could be pissing $ away on cartridges and canned goop. OK, that was a joke. Did anyone ever like those enough to have more than waht they needed on hand!? Of course not! I've never heard of cartridge and canned goop AD. That should tell you something.

Explain it to the wife. Does she want a hairy, mismanaged, unhygieneic, (did I miss anything?) face on her husband, or a clean shaven gent for her Knight in shining armor? (Damn! I ought to be in advertising!)Cool

Hi Robert

We must be living parallel lives, my wife has said the exact same thing to me on more than one occasion... Smiley_1140

Take care, Mike

What a lot of us do is rent a small apartment strictly for shaving and peace and quiet and tell the little lady that you are doing volunteer work at the local shelter.Perhaps even a Bomb shelter under your house. Basically we become liars and live secret alternate lives ...oh yah the journey has started big time...perhaps join the CIA and never answer any question because it is a secret Government operation...yes that is the best wayTongueTongueTongue

Has anyone ever told you about the wonderful world of bar soap? There is a whole life's worth of different bars to use. Some are even made by the same manufacturers of our beloved shaving supplies.

Hey there J-Fro. Yes and I do use several. I have a bar ofYardley and an aloe soap I use as a kind of pre-shave. Some Simply Natural which I have melted, added scent and have in my VdH bowl.. I use that in my rotation. It lathers well and does a nice job. When I got the itch to return to bowl and brush I used some Dove soap in a coffee cup and an old Burma Shave brush that I had been carrying around for 20 years. It did just fine. Do you have any more suggestions? Thanks...
