Greetings Jeff and welcome. My wife and I had an all-too-brief stop in Philadelphia three years ago at the Palomar on South 17th Street.I'm a long-time wet-shaver (I guess that means I'm old) who belongs to and follows a number of forums. I've been shaving with a Krona since 1969, when I bought it for $1.49 in the PX. It served me well for over fifty years until it gave up the ghost this past August. Fortunately, I had already purchased a backup on Ebay, had to pay 10X what I originally paid! Go figure! In any case, about three months ago, my oldest son turned me on to the wet-shaving community and I'm glad he did. I've made a number of friends in various forums and really enjoy the discussions and posts of the SOTD from various participants. I must admit to becoming infected with RAD. I already had my father's old Gillette Slim, and my grandfather's Old Type from his service in WWI. I've since acquired a Brass 1912 Patent 30's era GEM, a Gillette New Gold tone, and three new modern razors with a fourth on order. I shave with both DE and SE razors, but will admit to being on a quest. In fact, that's what led me into this new, wet-shaving hobby. I'm looking for a '75-'76 Schick Gold Tone Centennial Krona. I don't expect to find one anytime soon, but the quest has been fun! I plan on attending the the Shaving Collectibles Meetup in West Chester, Ohio on October 19. Will be meeting a number of online friends there for the first time. I have no plans to ever use a straight as I have Parkinsons, and that condition and straights do not go well together. That's quite a long-winded introduction, but I'm glad to be here, and hope to begin participating.
Enjoy your shaves,
That’s the old Architect’s Bldg. They have a great bar downstairs on the corner of 17th and Sansom Sts. They make as good a Sazerac as any made in New Orleans.Greetings Jeff and welcome. My wife and I had an all-too-brief stop in Philadelphia three years ago at the Palomar on South 17th Street.
