    BigD's Colonel Conk Natural Shave Soap Santa Fe Cedar Review

    They were very recently discontinued. That is why you are still able to find them from retailers until they run out of stock. There were some quality control issues regarding shelf life that we were just unable to bring to a level of satisfaction. Due to them being totally natural and...

    Amazon Recommendation ?

    It is, in all honesty, better with straight razors due to it being so slick. That was the intent when it was formulated. The original line makes a dense and creamy lather with more slick than you can handle... Not some billowing cloud of foam. Happy Shaves!

    I can only face-lather soap

    The only problem with using the method you mention is that the glycerin in the soap is a humectant. Once you "release" the glycerin from the binder it will separate and attract loads of water. You'll end up with an incredibly slick and lather-less cream.... Ask me how I know. Haha!

    Amazon Recommendation ?

    You can find a 4 pack of my original line on Amazon for great prices. I dont offer soap through Amazon but many retailers do... Sometimes you can snag a 4-pack for dirt cheap. So cheap in-fact, I wonder how they do it. Haha!

    The Col. Conk name on the tang dates yours to about the mid 90's. The later design (like the one shown with the logo on the blade itself) and solid red scales dates it around 2000-2006. We had many of those in stock and they could have been sold all the way up until 2014. Both razors were...

    It will be carbon steel. These razors (Both the Red and Pearl) are older razors. They were produced before the DOVO fallout of recent years.

    Nice score! If it has the translucent red scales that makes it at least 8 years old. That color was discontinued some time back. An excellent razor with a little hone work. It will no-doubt serve you well! If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask!

    Artisan's Vs traditional

    I do NOT envy you! Breaking in natural hair brushes in definitely not one of the best smelling things in the world. Haha!

    Artisan's Vs traditional

    If you go into it knowing what it is and what its made to do, you will not be disappointed. Buying an F-150 and expecting it to tow like an 18-wheeler will surely end in disappointment. ;) If you need any pointers to maximize the performance, I am always willing to help!
