Question: Elmer?

Listen to this article

In amateur radio culture, an Elmer is a person who teaches and nurtures the neophyte amateur radio operator.  Do you have a traditional shaving “Elmer?”  If you’re reading this blog I may be one of them, so exclude me from the list.  Who else?  Mike Ham (Leisureguy)? Bruce Everiss (BruceOnShaving)? Mike Sandoval (Shaving 101)? Dr. Moss (at SMF)?  Lynn Abrams (at SRP)?  What person(s) have been most instrumental or influential in your traditional shaving journey?

    In that order. I switched to traditional wet shaving the day I discovered your videos on youtube by accident.

  2. It should be Elmers really, hundreds of them. The collective wisdom and advice of the many members at the various shaving forums on the web.

  3. Weww, MY Ewmer is you, Mantic! I have wearned awwmost aww I know about shaving fwom watching your videos.

    How about coming to Philadelphia to do a shaving event? We don't have that many resources here. There is only an AoS store downtown and some of the cosmetic stores carry some decent stuff (eg. Sephora). That's it. We would benefit here from some in-person "Elmering".
