Howdy, Chaps!

Greg here, checking in from Steubenville, Ohio. I'm glad to have found this forum and have benefited from some of the posted reviews and comments in the forums over the last few days, so thank you all for that.

I took up the pipe in earnest a bit more than a year ago and have enjoyed it immensely. Particularly the sampling of many different styles and blends.

My pipe rotation currently includes a Savinelli Aurelia bent pot, a Savinelli Antique Shell author, a small-ish Savinelli bent apple, a vintage Barclay Rex straight apple, a MM Diplomat, a Dr. Grabow freehand, and I have a Dr. Grabow bent Duke on the way.

My "house blend" is a 50/50 mix of Lane BCA and 1-Q that just gets rave reviews from everyone. I just had a bit of a TAD stroke and got 5 2oz samples from Boswells and have tins of Erinmore Flake, MacB Navy Flake and Club Blend on the way.

I am also a member of Badger and Blade, the wetshaving forum. So, at age 42, you can see that I enjoy some of the more traditional enjoyments.

OK, that's probably enough about me for now. I'm glad to be here and look forward to participating, contributing and maybe even a little trading.

Thanks and Cheers!
-Greg

Welcome. Do you shave with a double bladed? I've got a Gillette from the early '50s that is my favorite. with Momma Bear soap and a good boar bristle brush. Good info. on B&B for double edged and straights.

Howdy, Natch!

Yes, I do use a DE. I have two No Date Code (i.e. 1949) Gillette Super Speeds that I use along with Derby blades and an assortment of Omega boar brushes. For soap I use Omega and Proraso in the tubes as well as P.160 and Cella.

Cheers!
