Hi Everyone

I'm in the SF Bay area, late 30's and switched to wet shaving this past spring after using an electric the past 6 years. I am new to this site and wanted to check in.

First time shaving with a DE this summer, a few months later learned how to shave w a straight. Now alternate back and forth, but prefer the DE due to the performance and high maintenance time / work involved with a straight.

Current collection is:

21 DE's ... preferring more aggressive models for first pass (Merkur Slant, Muhle r41) and more mild ones for subsequent passes

11 straights ... Like the bigger blades. Favorites are a Wacker 6/8 Qtr Hollow, Le Grelot 6/8 and some old Wade & Butchers

A lot of soap, aftershave, etc.

Result = shaving is now A LOT of fun!!!
