    Default Hello from California

    New member from California. I've been wanting to try straight edge shaving for years (maybe 25 or so). I've been a blade nut (not a geek) my whole life. I'm ready to take the plunge. Now I need to read, and learn, and buy a ready to shave kit (razor, strop, hone (maybe)) and have at it.

    I'll be prowling the wiki and classifieds. Thanks in advance for answering all my questions...

    It's not too hard. I picked up DE and SE at the same time. Just do your homework and expect a few bad shaves and lacerations at first and you will get through. As a noob myself, face prep and lather are the keys... But once you get that "perfect" shave, you will have the disease like everyone else... start saving some RAD money...
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

    Welcome to the party!

    When you get your kit go slow. The skill will come in time. Enjoy the journey.
