Hello all,

I've registered here thanks to Mike (MickToley). I live in Italy and I like to make and sell my own shaving soaps; I hope I will become a vendor here when I reach the requirements.

I wet shave with a double edge razor (Merkur) since year 2000. I only owned one badger brush and one double edge razor, then about one year ago I've discovered the straights world and got two of them: one is an artisan razor built from scratch for me, and another is a cheap German razor, which I like a lot because it sings like a bird Wink

In the meantime I've bought a boar brush which I love and I'm using more often than the badger. Overall, I usually shave with the DE and when I have time I try not to kill myself with the straights (so far so good).

So, it's a kinda minimalist set up, but I'm happy to have only few but good things.

That's all folks Rolleyes

Welcome to The Shave Nook.

It only takes one brush, one soap, and one razor to shave. The rest is just pure pleasure.

Thank you Leon (eu gosto de falar em Português Wink ),

my razor's been made by the Medusa group (Italy), here's a photo: http://www.ilrasoio.com/gallery/image.php?image_id=907
you can see they've used a double hardening and the "hamon" is clearly visible. If I'm not allowed to post that link, a moderator can delete it of course, sorry.
