I recently made the switch from blue plastic (Gillette Good News) and hand soap to a quality DE shave. My new kit consists of:



Merkur 23C

EJ DE89L

Feather Blades

EJ Super Badger Brush

EJ Shaving Bowl

T & H 1805 Shave Cream and Balm



Now in all honesty I wore a full beard for thirty years, but before I got the new stuff I spent the previous six months torturing my face. I've got a month or so of DE under my belt and I'm having a LOT of fun with it. Not to mention getting some great shaves!



Thanks to everyone on this forum for their great advice and for encouraging my AD. Smile



That reminds me, I'm interested in finding a '59 Ball End Tech (birth year) in nice condition.



Jeff

Third quarter would be perfect, but the year is most important to me. Thank you very much!

Thanks to ALL of you for such a fine welcome! I'm looking forward to spending more time here.
