    Hello, everyone. I am very new to DE shaving and I admit that I am now hooked and am sure to be a lifetime DE razor user. I have only been using this method for about 10 days. I hope to meet many like minded people and learn some tips and enjoy good company.

    Just a bit about myself. I am 35, and married with two awesome children. And both my kids think its neat that you can take a tiny bit of shave soap in a bowl and whip up a huge lather. I am a golf history enthusiast and I own a set of playable hickory shaft clubs from the 1920's which I play with a 3-4 times a year. I also play with modern clubs but I enjoy the hickories better. My life is a constant cycle of working, playing, family time and working lol. I look forward to my morning shave in preparation for a busy work day. It is an invigorating experience.

    Regards,

    Chris in West Virginia USA

    Hi! Welcome to the Den.

    My Dad's from WV. He's from Weirton, just north of Wheeling, up in the pan handle.
    He was in the AF which is how I came to be born in Maine. He and Mom are since retired and living in Maine.
    Proud to have some of that West-by-God-Virginia blood in me, though!
    He very much enjoys his golf, as well.

    Welcome to the shave den ChrisC1977, the hickory shaft clubs sound awesome, I am a regular player myself but don't think I would be able to play with old clubs, I struggle enough with modern ones, my wife says that my handicap is me holding the club!!!!
