:w00t: Greetings all.
My name is Chris and I'm fairly new to the world of straight razors. I have about ten or so now. I have spent hundreds on stones and am now perfecting my techniques. :sleep:

Welcome Chris. You probably spent a few hundred too much, but heck, each of us could use only one razor... :D

Have a great time at! I hope you find it a valuable source of information and a friendly place to hang around.

best regards,

Hi Chris and welcome!

And don't listen too closely to what the boys say here:

I personally use 4 razors for each shave: One for each cheek, one for the neck and one for the mustache area. :sleep:

And of course I deploy 16 coticules for a honing session: One for each dilution step ( I do 8) one - and that of course per side of the blade.

But that of course, is only the way I do it ..
