Awesome. Welcome to the old school scene. The best kind of hair has white tips on the end. It comes from some portion of the badger (neck, I think) that holds the most water. Make sure you get a good scented soap. After awhile, your brush absorbs the scent and is an added bonus.
I don't think people believe how cool it is and how nice a shave it becomes. I look forward to my shaves now. It's cheaper too. 30 stainless stell platinum plated blades for $15 and you can use one a month without having to clean the crap out of them all the time like you have to with tripple/quadrupple bladed heads.
