    Hello everyone! I have been following a few forums looking for info and decided to actually join one.

    Been using a DE for a while but really not doing a very good job with it so I started watching some video's and lurking on some sights like this one and had my first really good wet shave last night.

    Figured I would share it with someone who might appreciate it. I told my wife and she listened patiently and smiled politely but I'm pretty sure she was wondering why I was making a big deal about something I do every couple days. :)

    Good Shaving everyone!

    You’re never too far from Maggard Razors in Adrian.
    It’s well worth the trip.

    Thanks guys. Appreciate the warm welcome.

    Yeah I'm already planning the trip to maggards. There are a few soaps I would like to give the old smell test to before I buy. I would also like to look into some aftershave items and I know less than nothing about that.

    Welcome @LCBurt from here in western NY. Glad you decided to join us here at TSD. Make sure you look in to the Stirling Soap Company ..... top notch soap, AS ,and EDT. I'm glad you got yourself a nice brush with the Simpson Trafalgar. Careful this is quite the rabbit hole you've found with the razors (DE, SE, straights), soaps, brushes, AS, EDT, mugs, bowls, and etc.

    It's funny you should mention Stirling. I came across the name when I was doing research for the new brush and and it seems that are held in high regard for having an exceptional product at a very reasonable price. I'm thinking Executive Man and Deep Blue Sea are on my short list. There are a few "classics" that I can't wait to try as well like Tabac, Proraso and Mitchell's. It feels like I have taken the first few steps of a long journey.

    Welcome @LCBurt!

    Check out the 30 Day/Rule Focus thread. Plenty of good folks there that will help you learn and practice solid technique. Watch out for the shenanigans, though. ;)

    Have fun!

    I have a question about the 30 day rule. I am very interested in participating as I think that would be a great way start developing my technique. Since it is already half way through the month would it be considered bad form to start the 30 day rule now and continue into June, or should I just wait a couple weeks and start in the June thread?

    Thanks, I really appreciate the kindness and courtesy everyone has shown me and am very much looking forward the the Shenanigans!:git:
