Well, this seems to be a great place to learn and hang out! I've ordered some initial gear since I've been a Norelco and Braun guy for years. I got a cheap boar from Walgreens and some Clubman AS and am using some metal razor my dad had with disposables as practice. I've got a Futur on order as well as some Feathers... Truefitt & Hill cream/cologne sample kit Shaving creams-Speick, Tabac, Proraso, Musgo and Palmolive in the lighter green box and the Proraso pre/post balm. My wife and daughter think I'm nuts(prolly right) since I've got a goatee, but ritual is appealing and I can't wait to experiment with mine.
