    We can relate. Heed the advice of others and take your time, lest you end up like us and quit your 'real job' to pursue a career in the shaving industry

    Hi and welcome aboard. If you cant get a good shave with the basics everything else is pointless. Once you have the basics down you will have a better idea pf what you really want to.

    Welcome to SRP!!!

    Take the advice given, slow down. Yes it is fun and yes it can break the bank quickly!!
    But not knowing what you really want and just spending money, will, in the end, push you away from Straight Razor shaving. This is the place to get great advise and be enabled........trust me there

    Hi alschepis & welcome aboard. I see you already have had some good advice so just be patient. We all love sharp things & as long as we wake up in the morning, those sharp things & the condiments (brushes & soaps) will still be here. Great to have you here.
    Good luck my friend.
