Hello from Southeast Michigan.
I am happy to become a part of this community - the Art must be maintained.
I just had my first shave with a safety razor this morning - what a huge difference! I had been wasting money on expensive cartridge systems for decades, until I decided to try it the way my Dad shaved. The man knew what he was doing - though he switched to carts later in his life.
Welcome to the forum Paul! Enjoy your new approach to shaving.
