    1st let me say thank you for accepting me into this group. I am not sure how many women post on here, but I am glad to be an additional one.
    A friend of mine opened my eyes to vintage razors and their beauty as well as function. I had no idea that there were so many types, styles, different accessories and beautiful intricate designs. I became almost obsessed and overwhelmed with looking at vintage razors and made my 1st purchase of an eversharp Shick for my friend who was just starting his collection. I had no clue about the Razor ..just that its look appealed to me. My second purchase with guidance was gifts for my 3 adult sons. I purchase 3Edwin Jagger De89bl Double Edge Safety Razor Chrome Plated, Proraso/C.O. Bigelow Menthol Shave Cream with Eucalyptus Oil-5.2oz, 3 kingsley soap bowls and a package of razor blades Super Max Super Platinum. My sons loved them!
    I know have an ever growing collection of womens vintage , pocket editions and several other groups of OC and SE's

    I have found this to be a rewarding hobby and love to clean up these beautiful works of art

    Thank you everyone

    Well they are 19,20 and 26 and I thought that it would be a nice gift set for each of them to have "real" razors that they may hand down to their sons when they have them one day :)

    Welcome April Dawn! It is always good to meet someone new, and yes, it is nice to have another female here. There are a few of us who post regularly. BTW, don't worry about looking like a hoarder. There are plenty of folks here with large collections.

    Welcome Apsie...

    I think that you will like this forum a lot. Very nice people here, very informative post, not just a bunch of copy and pasting or repeating of what other have said. A big plus for the ladies is that there is a a sub-forum dedicated to women shavers. You can find that here.

    Although you will notice that the postings are not as many as the site that you are used to, I do think you will find that the members here post from their heart, so the quality of the post are very good.

    BTW, I am the "friend" who got her into DE razors...her collection is now probably 500 times the size of mine ;)
