New to SMF...From Arizona

Post by digitaldome » Tue Mar 11, 2014 7:52 pm

Hi everybody...
I've been wet shaving for awhile, but new to SMF.
I learned how to shave with a DE some 45 years ago, and eventually got caught up in the cartridge phenom.
I got back into wet shaving, because like some of us, got tired of being ripped off by the prices of cartridge blades these days.
I wanted to save some money. Ya...right :-)) Little did I know I was a prime candidate for AD...
I am not saving any money...but I am enjoying shaving again.
Good to be here...hope to contribute

I found SMF when I was looking for some reviews on razor blades. I stumbled onto Squire's in-depth reviews.
I figured that if all of you were as knowledgeable as Squire...then I want to be here. 8)
I don't believe in Fate...but I do believe in F8

Well, would never claim to be as knowledgeable as Squire or most other guys here
(there resides at SMF some incredibly clever and experienced gentlemen) but I have
learned a lot from SMF over more than 7 years.
Glad you've decided to join in and contribute from your considerable experiences as
Welcome to SMF!
Enjoying wet shaving, again.
