Greetings fellow wet shavers!

I'm a 24 year old Dairy Farmer from western Canada. I've lurked the forms for quite a long time before creating an account but here I am!

I've been a wet shaver for about 4 months now and all I can say is I should have been doing it this way from the beginning! I used to shave with 4/5 blade cartridge razors and have terrible razor burn on my neck as well as lots of irritation all over.

I have sensitive skin as well as dry skin so that didn't help at all. After my first shave with my 1st safety razor (Edwin Jagger DE89) I was literally hooked! Super smooth close shave, no irritation or razor burn. I don't have the biggest collection of supplies yet but I am working on it!

I look forward to learning more and contributing to the form!


**My collection**

Parker 24C(My main razor. Stored in the small wooden box), Edwin Jagger Knurled Handle(Hidden under a cloth and under the samples on the left side of the larger storage box), D.R. Harris Arlington Shaving soap, Kent of Inglewood Synthetic fibre brush, 100 Derby Extra blades, 20 Feather Blades, a couple samples of aftershave and cologne.

*Both storage boxes are handmade out of Birch plywood with brass hinges/latches. Inside I glued fabric overtop of cardboard that has cutouts for everything to sit nicely.*

Welcome to DFS, Dalton, and enjoy your stay. Smile

What a great introduction!  Those boxes are beautiful and you have an admirable collection for someone who has been using traditional shaving methods for only four months. Happy2

DFS is fortunate to have a fine contingent of Canadian members so, again, welcome.

Dalton, great to have you here! Nice to hear that a more traditional approach to shaving helped with some issues.

As did Freddy, I also find those boxes impressive. And also, your profession! (What else can I say — I love dairy products.)

Whenever I go to shave, I assume there’s someone else on the planet shaving, so I say “I’m gonna go shave, too.”
