    Default Good evening gentlemen, glad to be a part of something so rewarding.

    Hi folks,

    I have had an interest in straight razor shaving for several years. I purchased my first ( a Wacker ) a couple of years back and just worked up the nerve to begin using this after much research. Tons of research! My first 3 shaves were like feeling ice cold water in a swimming pool for the first time. Then, it's almost like the over cautious air lifted and then some nice straight shaving was happening. It's been almost 2 months but I'm now hooked. I have 7 straights and a custom order with RW in queue.

    It's nice to feel a sense of tradition during a daily ritual and to know there are others who take pride in doing the same. Just wanted to introduce myself and get onboard...

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