Please allow me to introduce myself:

Rusty Shackleford

What is your real name?

What are your nicknames/aliases?

Where do you live?
Sacramento, California

What is your age (or) generation?

What are you in the real world?
In the casino industry

What is your favorite shave setup?
Right now I'm just using a stiff, old boar brush, Old Spice mug, some Merkur blades and a HD Gillette Adjustable (the razor is new to me and I'm still having trouble finding a good setting for it). My old set up is a Gillette Superspeed, pretty much my go to razor. Right now, I'm still into using hard gylc. soaps. My wife and I have developed a kinda soap thing and we buy from a little company called Freedom Farm Soaps out in North Carolina. They lather good, lubricate great and just plain smell good too. As far as aftershave or balm, I'm a huge bay rum freak and my favorite has been Dominica however, I'm expecting a shipment from Lucky Tiger any day now. I love the smell and the presence of the old time goodies, the classics...Pinuad, Hoyt's, etc.

What are your hobbies and favorite activities?
In the real world, I'm with my wife and two daughters (ages 6 and 10). They are my life and reason for being. On the other hand, life with three women in the house can be draining! I spend a lot of time reading, collecting books on Pirates (my all time obsession) and I love to cook. I like to fly fish, work on old VW's and just sort of putter around the home, doing whatever comes to mind.

What else should the members of B&B know about you?
I'm never really serious, unless it's about my wife and kids. I love what I do for work and I love the people I get to work with. I guess I'm kinda a quite, laid-back, kinda guy. Anyways, I love this place. I enjoy shaving and I have shaved with my old Superspeed since I was out of highschool. Took all of these years, alot of burn and blood, to finally take the time and find out that I've been doing somethings wrong. My next great adventure is going to be a straight. I'm going to buy just one item at a time, like the honing stone first and then the stropp and so on. Hopefully, buy the time I've acquired a straight razor I'll have the nerve to try and use it. I've actually been practicing the technique with a butter knife (only when my wife and kids are not around. They think I'm crazy enough as it is). After the straight, I don't know...maybe a pirate ship.
