    Take your time and enjoy.
    I can see that I should have bought it at SRD instead of Amazon. I'll return it tomorrow and purchase the same one at SRD...seems like a more reliable (and faster) way to try my first shave.

You might find a member close to you. Be sure to check when the last time that member posted as he might not be a regular. If you find someone in the list, send him a pm. Lots of good folks and people that will hone if you want to mail it away but i understand. You want to shave now. Ha. We all did.

    Be sure to read the info in the library and for sure the stuff on newbie sha ers to the straight razor. This is something that take time and many sha es before it starts to get good. Just keep it up, ask questions, post up pics of your razor, just enjoy the trip. A year from now you will look back and think "why was i so scarred when i put this thing to my neck? Its no big deal."
    Have fun.
    Thanks a lot Guys, for the good cheer and encouragement. The library seems extensive and good weekend reading. I've already sent my first PM and hopped on my SR tricycle...

    You did good on your setup. Classic stuff. Cheap strop is the only way to start - you will nick it up. That brush is best value in badgers IMO.
