Hello and I am glad to be here...

Post by primotenore » Thu Jul 23, 2020 1:41 pm

(Mods, I could not find a "new member" thread, feel free to re-locate.)
Hi all,
I am brand new here and excited to meet some new wet-shaving enthusiasts. Many of you may know me from other shave fora, but if not, I certainly look forward to interacting with many of my fellow wet-shavers.
Thanks for having me. :D

Welcome to SMF!
Just out of curiosity, are you a recent convert to "real" shaving, or has it been a while?

Hi John,
I "saw the light" in January of 2014. I have been quite active on three other shave fora, but only recently found SMF.

Oh, right. :oops:

Well, welcome to the oldest surviving shaving forum still in its original format. The only older forum - straightrazorplace - was a Yahoo! group and survives as a web forum (one I'm trying my damnedest to keep going by cross-posting).

You didn't see that in my signature, because I didn't add it until you asked me. I had forgotten. It is in all of my other forum signatures.
Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for the welcome. I was fully entrenched in cart shaving when you first joined this forum.

That means I'm not totally losing my mind. :lol:
