    Default Howdy from Melbourne (AU)

    Greetings Gentlemen (and any ladies that may have inadvertently wandered astray).

    Iíve been lurking around here for more then a year absorbing all that I can.

    I havenít yet started to use a straight (although I have a couple of family heirlooms that are far from shave ready and begging for a restoration) but Iíve been trying to master the fundamentals of wet shaving for the past 6 months using a DE razor.

    In that time I have come to greatly appreciate (amongst many other things):

    1. the value (and comfort) of a sharp blade. Having fair hair, blue eyes and a beard with more then a little auburn tinge, feathers are my one and only;
    2. that patience is a virtue, for with out it being a patient is my destiny. Specifically, I experience nothing but unpleasantness if I donít take the time to make my skin taut and pay attention to grain direction, such that WTG always comes before XTG which always comes before ATG.


    I have not previously posted as I am in my formative years (figuratively speaking) and not yet wise in the art, however the new giveaway rules have had the desired impact and I will endeavour to keep my future participation informative and useful, thereby maintaining the customary standards.

    Warmest regards,

    Neal.
