Here are links and comments to some of the shaving-related discussions I either post or lurk on (or in some cases non-English-speaking forums that I’ve heard about but can’t participate in because of my poor language skills). This is in no particular order and is not complete. Feel free to contact me with additions! I encourage those new to traditional shaving to check these forums out. For the most part they’re welcoming, civil, and helpful to newcomers, without a lot of the “flamewars” and “snarky comments” of the typical internet forum.
