I just recently joined the AoM community and this group. I offer straight and safety razor restoration and repair services. Take a look at my profile and my classifieds listing for more info! If anyone has questions or needs some help don't hesitate to let me know.

Hello, men.  I'm new to this board.  I've only been using a DE blade since January, but I will NEVER go back to cartridges.  Currently using a Edwin Jagger DE89 handle and Derby Extra blades, an Omega badger hair brush, and Prorasso White shaving soap.

Larry, I've never used a pre-shave product. Only hot water for me, and I've never had any problems.

Larry, I've just been using Proraso shaving soap, but I'm also new to the safety razor and this is the first thing I've tried.

Just found this group!  I am fairly new to using a safety razor, but have found it much more pleasurable than the "modern" razors.  Question: Do any of you use a pre-shave cream?  Benefits?

It's fun to try all kinds of different razors isn't it, Gk? DE razors have much more variety than catridges and electric shavers.

I've been using a Gillette for about six years and love it. Between collecting old razors and brushes, I've got a quite a collection going on.

Welcome, Brian.

This is truly the only way to shave.  Excellent idea for a group, I look forward to learning from you all.

I got myself a Bluebeards Revenge Shavette for Christmas this year. I still love my Merkur Progress, but this is a cheap way to test the waters of straight razor shaving. Still haven't tried it yet though...

Young guys

hey guys, I have been interested in the MKP for a few years now and even began pursuing my dream of attending a weekend. After many emails back and forth as well as a few phone calls with an influential guy there (who was very nice) I was politely told that the weekend is more for older guys and while there are annual meetings in my area, in which guys get together at a local church and further share and bond, because of the nature of these meetings (they discuss feelings and their deepest…See More
