    Five Years of Wet Shaving

    Well, I will have to put my Merkur and a couple de blades in my checked bag next time I fly. And it is good to be comfortable again. When I tried to shave with the Harry razor, it was as though I was holding a pencil with a flat rock taped to the end. I started laughing because it felt so...

    Five Years of Wet Shaving

    Time goes by quickly, I began wet shaving after Christmas 2014 and I took to it with ease. I have cringed as I've read some of the not so pleasant experiences of newbies getting started out, thank God my experience was mostly great. Today I realized that it has been five years since I began...

    New guy check in

    Welcome Stephen. Your enthusiasm is contagious. Enjoy the new hobby, I'm a year and a half in and wet shaving has become second nature to me. And lately I'm wondering what I like better, actually using a DE razor or the shave soap. What shaving gear are you using? A vintage razor or modern...

    Off with My Beard

    Not to hi-jack my own post but I've got this '54 Tech (3 piece) and wonder what blades may work best. I have not used it in awhile, ready to try something new. Thanks.

    If you could start wet shaving all over again...

    Evidently, I was lucky and most everything worked. I started with one razor, Feather blades, one soap, and one brush. The only thing I would do differently is skip the Merkur blade.

    Off with My Beard

    Please pardon me on the goatee comment. I was wrong. After I cut mine off she says she liked me better with it, and specifically said not the full beard the goatee look. So it's all for nothing. It is nice to not have my mustache and beard get into everything I eat and drink. LOL

    Off with My Beard

    I've transitioned between full beard and round beard for over five years but the other day I decided it was time to rid my face of the brush pile. I'd been sportin' the goatee/mustache for way too long. And since they went out in the mid-90's, I figured I'd part with mine. The first clean...

    Beer of the Day - BOTD - 2017

    Tonight I'm drinking Lights Out Stout-vanilla cream extra stout-by Worth Brewing It's the easiest drinking stout I've ever drank, when compared to Guinness stout, it doesn't have as much taste. The price was right. I'll buy it again.

    Newbie here

    Welcome. I was brand new two years ago, the gentlemen on this board trained me to wet shave. Enjoy! Be sure to check out the forum's wiki, the tutorials on how to shave, lather and do everything else are well done. And the section on identifying your vintage razor and its date are well done...

    I Tried A Shark Blade

    Thank you. I shaved a minute ago. Now, I wish I had not disposed of the first Shark SC blade. I pulled out my Gillette New, put a new Shark SC in it, then lathered up some Arko. The first pass went well, so I opted for a second. The second went better, so I opted for a third pass. Not even a...
