Thank you for allowing me into your group, thanks to Dave in KY for inviting me to join after our discussions in the comments on his YouTube videos and thanks to Fuzzy for his videos!

I started DE shaving about 5 months ago and got the bug for vintage Gillette razors that lead to antique store expeditions. I knew nothing about vintage SE razors and initially overlooked them. About three weeks ago, I ran into a stunning old razor that I knew nothing about. After spending a couple of days researching, I went back and picked up a Stoll Chrome Steel lather catcher in the box. 

This led to more research into vintage SE razors/shaving and watching Dave's and Fuzzy's YouTube videos. I was particularly keen on the baton handled razor that Fuzzy was shaving with on one. I stumbled, thanks to the grace of the Google gods, across a nickel Gem Junior w/ baton handle in The Parade box for sale online at a Mormon used book store of all places; just got that in the mail.

I've yet to shave with either of these razors, but have them cleaned/sanitized and ready to go. I feel very fortunate to have found these two wonderful razors to start my SE shaving with, they are beautiful to look at! I was able to find Treet carbon blades for sale at a local supermarket and picked up a pack of 10 blades. I'll soon take the dive, likely starting with the easy parts first and use an unmentionable on my goatee area as I'm still working on my technique there and struggle to get it right.

Thanks again and please forgive me in advance for my ignorance on SE shaving. I'm looking forward to learning from each of you!
