Re: Posting Has Slowed Down Lately

This place and people here taught me not only to shave like a men but to be gentleman.

I was 23 years old, when I landed here with zero knowledge.

People here taught everything I know today about wet shaving. I use posts here as reference when I am getting somebody into wet shaving

Re: Lea Classic Soap

It took me 5 shaves and brush with good backbone to tame that soap. Love it now.

Never give up after first impression. Give it two weeks of shaving before getting opinion!
