I've been wetshaving for a year or so. initially I stuck to my merkur and proraso soap, till some months ago when my supply was running low and I looked into what was out there. now I'm shaving with a vintage razor and have enough soap for 2 years. looks lie ill be spending vs saving money at this point. LOL! its all good though because now shaving is something I look forward to, instead of just another mundane everyday task. hope to learn from you all.
