    Angry Intro from Sweden.

    Hey all,

    wet shaving newbie since 6 months back using a DE. I contracted RAD three weeks ago, and have been ramping up my SR shaves since then. Did my first head shave today, with a Wade & Butcher "The Bow", and a good dollop of Proraso shaving cream. Rounded this off with some TOBS sandalwood aftershave lotion.

    Best,
    Dave

    Hi Dave, welcome to SRP!

    Why did you put a angry smiley in your thread title? Don't you like Sweden ?

    Congrats on the first head shave, it's different, but not at all as difficult as some might think

    Welcome Dave, from a fellow head-shaver

    It seems that the two first two to welcome you on SRP are Norwegians, but not to worry, they aren't all from up here!

    Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years....

    Hey Zephyr,

    Sweden's nice and all, but I liked the evil smilie enough to use it for the post.

    Thanks for the congrats. Wifie commented that there were much fewer nicks than usual. "Usual" meaning an old M3. Never again!

    It might be a Scandinavian thing.
