    Hey guys, just wanted to pop in and say hello.

    I'm an older guy, but pretty new to DE wet shaving. I'm not sure why I stuck with cartridge and electric razors for most of my life! Grind and rub, grind and rub! Yeesh. Burn and irritation, not to mention expensive.

    Anyway, I'm here now, and I have a couple of razors, a brush, some soaps, an alu bar, and an assortment of blades, and of course, Old Spice! I never realized that this world even exists and so many guys were into it. I actually look forward to shaving now, and it's quickly become a relaxing ritual that I look forward to.

    I have a lot to learn, and that's why I'm here. Maybe someday I can even share some knowledge!

    See you guys on the forums!

    Welcome aboard.
    You've found what many us have found - "shave time" can be "me time"!

    I never thought I'd actually look forward to shaving, but I really do now. Peace and serenity!:)

    Welcome. I was in your position 10 years ago. 80+ razors later I'm well down the rabbit hole. Enjoy your shaves, and maybe your collection!

    Yes, I know all about rabbit holes! But at least this hobby is relatively cheap compared to my other hobbies.:ashamed001:
