Welcome to B&B, enjoy your shaves.
I've been on the fence for several months, but an e-mail from my brother finally broke my inertial state. He told me he'd tried a safety razor and made the switch from cartridge razors. Turns out, that was a couple of years ago.
So I bought a razor and a trial pack of blades to start. I just kept using my trusty shave gel, face lathering at first. A week later I placed an order for a brush, bowl, stand, cream sampler, and after shave. A few weeks later, earlier this week, I placed another order for some different blades to try, a different after shave, and an open comb razor head to try a more aggressive shave.
I'm two months in... it doesn't get any better! I'm already in three straight razors, badger brush, strop, creams, soaps, balms, oils, aftershaves, alum block, razor sacks... but at least I'm not addicted like you....
