    Hello to all,

    I just now became a member to The Shave Den.

    For a little about myself, I first learned how to shave with a DE safety razor, but went to cartridges when I was around 18 or so. For quite sometime, I have been thinking of going back to the ways I originally learned how to shave, but have not made the plunge until just recently. I don't think I will be ever going back to cartridge.

    At some point, I would like to try out a straight razor...maybe sometime in the near future....

    Anyways, thank you for letting me join this online community and hope all will stay well during these unprecedented times with the whole COVID-19 situation and all.

    Thank you

    I have a 1964 Gillette Slim Adjustable that I recently got and mainly shave with, along with a Gillette pre war Tech, and a 1951 super speed. I also in the process of purchasing a Gillette Fatboy.

    I purchased a packaged deal with the Tech I mentioned above, and it came with a vintage old spice shaving mug, a vintage Peerless pure bristle brush, and a vintage Burma-Shave shaving soap.

    I have Nivea sensitive cool post shave balm, and just learned about pre shave oil, so I picked up a bottle of Shave Secret shaving oil.

    I ordered online a sampler pack of blades, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19, so I purchased some Van Der Hagen blades at a local store. I recently got the blade order in the mail, but have not had a chance to try the sampler pack yet.
