    Default Salutations from the cornpatch

    Hello everyone. I am new here, but not to straight razors. I have been using them for many years, and made more than one. Thought the place looked interesting and civilized, after reading over Mike Blue's shoulder last weekend.

    Welcome to this forum Bigear. I believe you will enjoy your time here especially if you have any perfectionist tendencies. I certainly appreciate all forms of smithery, especially the simple tools needed for everyday life! I look forward to the stories you may share.
    Are you still shaving with your own razor?

    Thanks for the welcome guys !

    I must confess that use almost entirely antique razors to shave with. I have never kept one of my own make, always having traded them for filthy lucre or other trade goods.

    I always test drive them though, then re-finish them and send them to the customer. It has been a few years since I made one, but I am feeling the bug again. Spending a few days with Mike and Mick Maxen last week has renewed my interest in several things. All good.

    I am not real talkative most of the time, so don't mind me sitting in the back, ok ?

    Oh, very nice, I better take a look at the rust bucket, I'll make you an offer you can't refuse

    Yeah, I can totally see how hanging out with Mike would do that to you - I've only read his posts and get that close from setting up a smelt in my backyard

    And most certainly read, post, whatever - we don't care much, as Lynn says 'have fun'.
