    Hi All,

    New to the forums, but not new to wet shaving. Have used a variety of methods and have returned to the DE. Have some straights, but don't have the strop or the courage to try them yet.

    Hope to get to know you all over the years.

    Welcome to SRP. Shaving with a straight razor was similar for me to the first time I rode a fixed gear bicycle on a banked track velodrome. Scared the heck out of me but I went for it and fell in love with it. Check out the sig line with the link for more useful info and enjoy your shave.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Welcome to SRP. May your first Str8 shave be a smooth one

    Welcome! We're glad you have joined us!

    I was nervous the first time I used a straight razor, but I love it now and I would never want to go back to cartridge razors.

    Check out the Wiki, the beginners guide and the FAQ in my sig line below, as theres some great info there.

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Hello, diamondtim:

    I add my welcome, too. We are delighted to have you here. Yes, it is a good home.

    I use both straight razors and double edge, and love both, each in its own way.

    Regards,
    Obie
