    Happy Anniversary to me!

    Well folks, today is my Anniversary! Or at least, my six month anniversary of my first DE shave! I’m so glad I made the switch.

I’ve spent enough time reading posts and learning from other’s experiences, so I thought it was about time I did the honourable thing and joined up. Pretty new to DE shaving, and enjoying the pleasure of good shaves, but also...
