Greeting gents !

Post by orientshave » Mon Nov 05, 2018 1:41 am

Hello,

As an experienced wet shaver, I am still learning :) I also want to share my experiences. I prefer mild razors with sharp blades. Below you can see my shave den picture 8)

Welcome to SMF, orientshave!

I, too, prefer mild razors and sharp blades (though not Feather blades).

Thank you @fallingwickets! That's true, I usually find myself staring at the stuff in front of the den previous night to pick up the razor-blade-soap/cream-as for the morning shave! :D
