Perhaps the least attractive aspect of this wetshaving world is the near constant encouragement to get things. Razors, brushes, all of the gear associated with this hobby (if that is what it truly is) all have their own "Acquisition Disorder" (or AD). RAD, SAD, BAD, all stand for one thing: the measurement of fun in terms of how much stuff you get.
I myself was a quick study, and severe sufferer, of ADs of all shape and size. Razors both safe and not, soaps, and above all stones all served to feed the "passion" I felt about my newfound hobby.
It's all over now.
