Hello DFS,

I'm Charlie.  Just learned about this forum while shopping for soap (the description of the DFS LE soap made my mouth water... I didn't feel comfortable ordering prior to joining, so now that I'm a member here I can buy it without compunction!).

I'm an active member on one other site, still, it's nice to find a relaxed new venue for sharing thoughts about wet shaving. Have been traditional  wet shaving for about two years now, after despising the chore for the previous 40+ years. I use two modern razors, but I've also acquired a nice little collection of vintage Gillettes and more recently GEMs. Just recently became a fan of SE razors btw, and am awaiting a near mint Featherweight in the mail this week. I've developed a real fondness for quality Simpsons and Semogue badger brushes after a year of trying to convince myself that pure badger and boar brushes are just as satisfying. Started out as a bowl latherer, but now I'm exclusively a face latherer.

I'm always trying to convert folks to the joys of trad wet shaving - the number stands at three, but four isn't far behind.

All the best to this DFS forum and its members - live long and prosper!

My Parents lived in Kew Gardens for over 35 years and I once lived and worked in the Flushing area. Went to the Blue Bay many times back in the 60s.
