2019 DFS LE - Eleven Soap & Aftershave Splash is now LIVE! Read more here!!

My name is Elias and I come from the Island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea. 

I started wet shaving about 2 month ago with a Merkur 23C and Wilkinson Sword Blades and as of last week I've switched to a new razor, the Parker 26C. 
The Parker is a more efficient razor than the Merkur but l found that it gives me a slight irritation on the neck. The blades I used with the Parker are the Black 7'oclock Indian Gillettes wich may be the reason for the neck irritation. In quest of finding the reason of the irritation I will be loading the Parker with a Wilkinson Sword Blade. 

My software stack composes a classic bunch of soaps and after shaves. Cella, Arko stick, TOBS Sandalwood, MWF, Palmolive, Proraso Cream, Aqua Velva, Old Spice, Brut, Nivea Balm and homemade tonners and aftershaves are what I have and I think I will get a few years of shaving out of them. I'm reading good stuff about the artisans soaps but haven't tried any yet.

Traditional shaving has also led me to became a collector of old and vintage razors. I usually get them locally from antique shops or elderly gents that don't use them anymore. 

It's nice to be here here and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts with the community and also learning from the more experienced members.
