    Default Hello From Milwaukee!

    Hello All,

    My name's Chris, and I'm new to this whole world to straight razor shaving. I got turned onto it at a local barber shop. Where I go, they use straight razors to clean up the back of your neck. This piqued my curiosity, so I started researching it more in-depth online. After reading numerous posts about how great of a shave it makes for, and my mounting frustrations with razors that are on the market now, I decided to try out straight razor shaving. I don't have any equipment yet, as I am still sifting through all the information I can about straight razor shaving and trying to make as informed of a purchase as I can. I'm really excited about this though. Can't wait to jump into these forums

    Hello fellow newbie. I too live in Milwaukee. There is allot of information here to digest. As a fellow newbie I can not stress enough that you read the Wiki.

    So welcome and feel free to message me as well. I can share my limited experience over the past month. I have also posted a thread to get people from Wisconsin to chime in and say hi. Hopefully someday we could have a Wisconsin meet up.

    Thanks for the warm welcome all. Glad to see a Wisconsin contingent in here! I think meeting up and having a couple delicious brews some time would be in order since we're all in the area anyways. Thanks also for bringing up SRD, HNSB. I actually stumbled across that website before I landed here. I have my eye on a couple of the razor/strop kits.
