Hello all, a new member here in Brisbane. Having recently left the rat-race workforce temporarily, I have been able to slow down and take a bit of time out for myself to enjoy the finer things in life (and feed the addiction and buy enormous amounts of new tools too (Thanks Tony F. )). Imagine my surprise when I found out there are better ways to shave than the heathen way I have been for many years. So I dug out that old Gillette safety razor and blades that I knew were too good to throw away, made myself a few new brushes, and now I feel just so young and cool again. How good it is to be able to turn the tables on the women in my household and hog the bathroom myself for nothing more than a nice long shave. Looking forward to indulging in "shaving like a man" again, and this forum is clearly the place to learn, share and enjoy. Thank you.
