    Hey all. I'm glad I stumbled upon this website. Having been interested in straight razor shaving for a long while I found the site very helpful. That being said I'm ready to actually purchase my first razor...wish me luck.

    Welcome. There is a lot to learn and the information is here. Feel free to ask about anything. One of the very important factors is that your first razor be shave ready. Not just factory sharpened but actually sharpened by someone that knows how and uses a straight razor. Have fun!

    Welcome to the most friendly, helpful and informative site on the web!!

    You will find members here of all different backgrounds, ages and occupations from all corners of the world and all with a quest for more knowledge about using and maintaining a straight razor!

    If you take the time to search, 99.9% of your questions can be found in the Library (WIKI) however feel free to ask us about whatever it is that you are wondering about or having a problem with. It does help if you’ve done some research before hand so it narrows the problem down a bit.

    Check out the Classifieds here @ SRP! I also have friends who are respected members who have beginner's razors that won't break the bank!!

    My best counsel is to go slow and stay away from FleaBay! Once you know more then you can make better choices there!

    Enjoy the Ride! It's a Long Strange Trip, but well worth the journey!!

    Great to have you on board, I too an a pensioner and just taken up straight razor shaving, I have learned so much here. Everyone here is more than happy to help with any problems you may have. Stick with the basics and take your time learning as it will be easier on your wallet and teach you the right way to get the most out of your shaves. Most of all have fun!!!!
