[Updated September, 2020] Here are links and comments to some of the shaving-related discussion forums (in alphabetical order).  Forums used to be more welcoming, civil, and helpful to newcomers, without a lot of the “flamewars” and “snarky comments” of the typical internet forum.  Unfortunately as traditional wet shaving has grown the forums are beginning to get a lot more “noisy” and, while the membership is usually enthusiastic, some forum administrators and owners have become more rigid and heavy-handed with their policies (some going so far as to ban links to resources that are off-site).  “Lurk” on a forum for a while to get a feel for what is and is not permitted before you start participating.

  • The Original Safety Too:
  • The Shave Den: Another firmly established, active traditional shaving forum.
  • The Shave Nook: Another popular wet shaving forum.  Very active with “well-connected” users who sometimes “scoop” other forums with new product announcements or original research.  Owned by a wet shaving vendor but with a reasonably neutral content philosophy.
