    Welcome aboard, sir! Glad to see another fellow get hooked on this wonderful, gentlemanly sport.

    While the stated Location in your member profile elicits a chuckle, you will find more tangible benefits by supplying an actual location here (for local meet-ups, meeting up with members or mentors in your area, etc.). SRP is unlike 99% of all fora, so we all understand your hesitation to reveal your whereabouts to the whole of the Internet, but relax, we are different sort of group (well duh, straight razors!).

    That is unless you have found yourself trapped in a witness protection program....if so, be sure to change up that vault # occasionally to throw them off of your trail.

    Thank you (and everyone, so far) for the welcome. I have made some incredible acquaintances, on my other shaving fora and expect to do the same here. I don't do "meet-ups", so my location is moot. (But it does also give an indication of another interest of mine)
    As far as witness protection...well, if I told you I would have to...(you know the rest)

    You’re not the first tool knife guy that gravitates to razors. A side benefit of learning to hone razors is, you think your tools and knives are sharp now, just wait.

    I just spent $200 on saw files.

    Hello Primo, it's nice to see you on this forum. I've been happy to see your recent SOTD photos with straights on TSN and you'll have to start posting them here as well.

    Thank you Richard. I am starting a new chapter in my shaving career and excited to get involved with this community.

    ;-)

    Or, Just make a comment that has your favorite airport.
    Airports service areas about as far as most are going to drive so
    it gets you close. Mine are SJC and OAK.

    There is a real issue with postal codes and other more specific locators.
    A close enough to send a private message hint does make sense.

    For me JFK is about a 47 hour drive non stop so if your local airport is JFK I will not be driving your way for coffee
    anytime soon ;-)
