I look forward to learning more about shaving products and technique and participating in the witty banter here on B&B.
Welcome, Liam. Enjoy your shaves! :001_smile

My father's last USCG duty station was in New London. We moved there in 1967, the Red Sox's Impossible Dream season, making me a Red Sox fan for life. Upon retirement from the USCG, my father took a job in Boston, and in 1970 we moved to Brockton, where I graduated from high school. I moved to Pittsburgh in 1979, and have rooted for the Pens, Pirates and Steelers ever since. Still a card carrying member of Red Sox Nation.

Welcome aboard my man. I hope you enjoy BB as much as the rest of us and delve out into other razors along your travel. I started with a Dorco Prime starter set and since then have purchased over 15 razors. You will find perfection as you experiment among brands and styles.
