I've been wet shaving for most of my shaving life (15-20 years). My face and pocketbook quickly grew weary of cartridge razors. One of my first "real" razors was a Merkur Vision. (The inner stem eventually broke unexpectedly.) I have had razors as "cheap" as the Feather plastic "butterfly" razor, to my more recent purchase of the Tradere SB, which I am now selling because I'm not getting as close of a shave to which I am accustomed. I have never used a brush before, and I know some will think me crazy for starting with a Wee Scot. (I may well agree after it arrives, but I'm looking forward to trying.) I have always used shaving cream in a can and currently use an Aveeno product for sensitive skin. I recently started using Proraso pre-shave for sensitive skin, and have a tub of Proraso soap for when my Wee Scot arrives. I have an Above the Tie Titan H1 on order and am expecting a Merkur Classic 1904 closed comb. I have used Merkur and Feather blades in the past and am currently using Astra SP's. I couldn't resist getting 100 blades for $9 on Amazon. I have ordered Personna Med Preps and accidentally (re)started the Med Prep vs. Lab conversation already. I have thoroughly enjoyed the very informational threads I have read thus far. You guys insane, fun, and informative. I'll do my best to contribute. I have a lot to learn about getting the best shave for my face. I'll share my lessons learned along the way.

Welcome to the Nook! The Scot is a perfect starter brush, especially if you face lather. It's size will fool you and it will whip up crazy amounts of lather and it's not super expensive. Check out Teiste's excellent video featuring the Wee Scot..it just explodes!
