    Default Hi from Poland

    Hi I'm 30y old male from Poland (so please excuse my poor English)

    My story:
    I'm very, very fresh in straighrazor community. I was always fascinated by razors but never have time (or becouse of many other reasons) deepen my fascination. Up till now. As i said i'm rookie here i have bought few razors on flea market, bunch of stones and other maintaince tools.
    I cleared blade, sharpen endge and tried to shave myself... and i was in love... painful love (razor wasn't sharp enought) so that probably save me from cutting of my nose, ears and lips and slitting my throat. Anyway now i'm here to deepen my knowledge about straightrazors. I want to have nice collection of blades (they are so pretty, shiny) i want to learn where to look for old straightrazors and how to restore them and such. Which straight razors are good to buy and which to avoid... I want to have huuuuge collection of straightrazors

    Anyway Hi and thanks for reading this

    Hello and Welcome. Your english is fine...no worries Sounds like you jumped right in! May I suggest that you send one of your razors to get proffesionally honed so that you'll have a benchmark to know what shave ready is. Other than that keep reading and experimenting and it'll keep getting better!

    Hi and welcome to SRP. This is a great place.

    I'm not sure but i think that just like in Finland, straight razor shaving isn't so popular there (at least not yet), so you have good changes to get some nice findings from the local flea markets. I visited Poland last year and saw several old razors for sale cheaply.

    Dzien dobry, jak sie masz?

    Greetings from Switzerland. Just watch out not to cut yourself, or you might find yourself shouting the all-famous, everywhere known polski "k word" all over your bath room ;-) (actually, I've never met a half-way educated adult who does not know the most famous polish word. everyone knows it, lol)

    Welcome aboard, djekuje :-)
