Everyone on this site is here to help with advice on the "art" of shaving. Most all enjoy the daily ritual, and some just like using, and/or, collecting said equipment. Pick a razor you want to use, purchase some blades to try, and work on your technique. It takes time, but that's what makes the journey into DE fun. Some of us have found what works, and some are still searching for that "perfect" shave. For some, it will be a never ending search, as some will continually try the next best thing to come along. Possibly, DE is not your niche. You could always try SE, and there are those here on B&B that could help you along that route. Good luck on your journey...Thanks a lot for the advice, all is much appreciated.
The pointers however on here from everyone will be very helpful going forward, handy to know that everyone's experience of different razors and products differs. To be honest I cannot my head around how anyone can enjoy and look forward to shaving as so many do, but hopefully I'll be able to join that camp at some point
