    Hi everyone. Greetings from Pittsburgh PA,originally i'm from Ukraine. I started wet shaving apr. a year ago(always wanted to do that). So i started firstly with DE safety razors and than with SE - such as Gem Junior;1901 Star Kampfe Bros.;1901 Gem Junior Bar. SE got me a little closer to a real thing.You know i think i'm fitting the profile of a straight razor guy - i prefer to listen to the vinyl and vac.tubed equipment is my choice. I bought some interesting razors: Wade & Butcher"The Celebrated Hollow Ground Razor", W&B "Celebrated Fine India Steel Set Ready For Use" -looks like it's an early 1800's,Thomas Turner"The Royal Navy Razor",John & Wm. Ragg"Napoleon",Dubl Duck Special #1,Arsa 91 and some more.Started shaving with Joseph Rogers & Sons Cutlers to Their Majesties(it was shave ready,so i only stropped it) and i was pretty carefull and it took me quite a long time, but i didn't cut myself and i loved it. I'm realy obsessed with straight razors now. Best Regards. Sutcliffer.

    Welcome to SRP and I love your collection.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
