What's new

Intro

Greeting,
After a few weeks of lurking, I decided to join this great community and I hope, contribute to it.

I am 65 years old, retired and live in central VA. I have been using a DE for about 10 years, but only recently ventured into the world of pre-shaves, brushes, shave creams and post shave treatments. This site has been a wonderful resource- than you all.

Until recently I have been using a post-war Tech that was either my father or grandfather's- wish I knew! With retirement and COVID, I started concentrating of other aspects of shaving- beyond the razor. Shaves have been improving and I am definitely enjoying my every other day shave more.

I have also entered the delightful rabbit hole of acquiring more razors. I have been focused on solid bar Gillettes and recently made a flurry of purchases- mainly from Back Roads Gold (wonderful!). I know some folks prefer razors in original condition, but I really prefer a gleaming version!

I look forward to communicating with the wonderful folks at this site- the camaraderie is wonderful to see.
 
Welcome, glad you've joined. I was in the vintage Gillette rabbit hole for quite some time. We would love to see a pic or two of your new acquisitions from Back Roads Gold. They do lovely work, by the way.
Fatboy due to arrive tomorrow- will post a pic. Thank you for the welcome to the group.
 
You're most welcome. I think you'll find our little slice of the internet a friendly group. We try to be civil & learn from each other about this wonderful pastime of ours. Join in the fun & post in the threads. Any questions? Ask away!

Welcome aboard. Jump right in and feel free to share your wisdom shaving with a DE for over 10 years. Enjoy the journey and rabbit hole associated with the other aspects of wet shaving.
Thanks!
