Hi there,

I am Daniel from the Netherlands and i'm new on this forum so I would like to introduce myself.
As i've mentioned before, my name is Daniel and i've been DE shaving for a couple of years now.
My "Shaving Den" consists of a vintage Gilette Aristocrat and a Merkur Progress, which is my razor of choice.
I used to have another Merkur open comb but I gave that one away to one of my converts! Sofar i've led a coworker and a close friend of mine to the right DE path.
I like Tabac soap, Astra blades and my Vulvix Brush mixed Boar and Badger.

My future plans are to purchase a Whipped Dog silver tip (and more soap!)
On my wishlist are a Mergress or a Digress and a nice (DIY) storagesystem for more soap.

Did I mention i am married with children?

See you around and thank you for having me here on this forum.

Yes, welcome to the forum.

Squire, why didn't I get a seal when I joined? Is this a new member benefit?

Also, I tried to copy and paste the attribution for the image as requested but the copy function on Google didn't work. Sorry about that.

Seals are protected here, but not in The Netherlands. Squire knew that.

Welcome to SMF, Daniel!

The Mergress is probably my favorite razor, and I have quite a few.
