Greetings from the rainy coastline of Washington state. I'm here to join what I imagine is a very small number of women on the forum. I actually got into wet shaving last year, but I shave super infrequently so I'm still pretty much a newbie. I've been getting more into it recently because I started swing dancing and subsequently wearing short(-ish) skirts more.

My kit is pretty basic right now, I have a 1958 Gillette DE and an assortment of blades I'm still working my way through, a pretty low quality badger brush, and a Mama Bear's soap. I'd kind of like to try out new soaps and stuff but being a student, I'm pretty much always broke.

Hello and welcome to the forum, neighbor. If you'll PM me with your name and shipping address, I'll send you some soap and cream samples to try.

Oh man, don't even say that. I already hoard yarn, socks, and vintage clothing. I also have a cat who eats like it's going out of style.

I have two 8-9lb girls and a 15lb boy (pictured in my avatar) and they eat more than I do!

I have one 11lb girl who's lactose intolerant and therefore has to have a special diet. There are also another 5 cats that live at my parents' house, ranging from old and kind of sickly to big and mean; they all have different dietary needs, it's a mess.

Yet, we continue to love cats...

I had a cat, but I traded him for a new brush ! Smile Hindsight being 20/20, it was cheaper to feed the cat !

Welcome to The Shave Nook and enjoy your stay. Smile

While women do make up a small part of the Nook, they are more than welcome. Frankly, it's interesting to see what women like about and seek in traditional wet shaving. Again, welcome.
