Hello and welcome, Mike. Great to have you here on B&B. This is a super forum and you will learn a lot here.
Thanks for the welcome, gents!

This forum has been of immeasurable benefit for me as an enthusiast and a retailer. I'm one of those lucky ones who tried DE and straight shaving and found myself a natural on both counts. No nicks, no weepers, no burn (after years of suffering under the cartridge shaving system!). The amazing shave and unimagined comfort from wet shaving with a DE or straight hit me so deep I went from new convert to shop owner in a matter of months. Reading the boards here gives me great insight into the questions to expect from customers (many questions I had myself when I was just starting out). I recently hosted a shave clinic at the local library and the presentation and discussion part was so familiar I kept remembering sitting here at my laptop reading B&B! In fact, it was a discussion today about the clinic that made me remember I was still a lurker and had not yet introduced myself. I hope to be a contributing member soon.

Thanks for telling us a bit about yourself in the HoF.

It is always good to put some background info with a screen name.

Kick back and enjoy your time on B&B
