    Default Back in black

    Hi all,

    it has been a long time...

    I believe about three years since my last post. Quite a few things happened throughout the time that passed by. I graduated from college, got masters degree in chemical engineering and got full time job.

    Also got into the sport of bowling.

    Since free time got up in it's quantity, I figured out that it is time to get back to straight razors. They are all still at home, waiting to get a retouch and good stropping job and to bring them back to life. I must admit I have been careless, so some of them will need some maintenance before honing.

    Nevertheless, I didn't abandon the ways of wet shaving, I just used the DE instead.

    I am really thrilled with getting back to straight razors and sharing the stories and experience with wonderful community here at SRP.

    The years of absence make me feel like a beginner again...

    Cheers,

    Robert

    Now that you are back, you can get in a couple practice shaves on your bowling balls . . .

    Welcome back to the brotherhood.
    Any day on this side of the flowers is a good day!

    So did I. I had quite a collection at home, and now I had just 2 comic books left. I also like to read Alan Ford, definitely one of my all time favorites.

    Yea, how about that! I forgot all about Asterix! I used to read that when I was little in Germany... We moved to the states, but it wasn't big here.

    Welcome back from a newbie, I am not to far away in Kosovo. I hope to start Straight Razor Shaving soon, once my kit arrives. Congratulations on earning yourself a masters and a full time job. Some days I wish I had gone to collage... but I chose the Army instead. I used to bowl at one time in my life, the time before I was married. Check out this post from Jock he is in Zagreb also, http://straightrazorpalace.com/membe...r-croatia.html
