    Is Speick a premium shaving soap?

    Have you used other sticks with success before? Wondering if you may need to use more product. I prefer mine grated in a bowl, but either way, Speick punches well above its weight class and is up there with the best of them in my den.

    B&M Patches

    I don't get any black pepper either out of the tub or during the shave, but I think what's accomplished by adding the black pepper is that it tones down what might otherwise be too sweet of a scent. Granted, this still smells like strawberries and will inherently be sweet, but it's not cloying IMHO.

    B&M Patches

    Picked up a tub a couple weeks back, and it's exactly what you'd think it'd be: awesome B&M soap base, and a scent that smells like a strawberry patch. Not too sweet, not earthy, pretty dang well rounded. If you like strawberries and you like B&M soap, this thing is a winner.

    I have been chosen... Razorock P160

    Also had the same reaction when I first tried it - Stirling Almond Creme has been a great replacement. No benzaldehyde, and no reaction for me. Hope you can find some almondy goodness soon, OP!

    What are you unpacking/ opening today, show pics or video, we love pics

    Mr post man dropped off some goodies from IB! Lovin the weight and knurling of the barber pole handle, and the 400 is stellar in person. TBD on the knot, there may be a badger reknot in its future if the Plissoft backbone isn’t there.

    Need a recommendation for a Grapefruit soap

    Leave the top of your TOBS cream open for awhile. It’ll harden up, and voila. Haven’t found anything as pure and punchy as TOBS grapefruit. If only it tasted as good as it smelled.

    Let's see your favorite shaving mug.

    Snagged a CRSW bowl way back when - I keep a chunk of my rotational soap in it, then lather up in a DB brush scuttle. Not sure it qualifies as a mug though...

    10th anniversary B&B Boar Brush

    Fairly certain they’re Omega brushes, I may stand corrected though.

    pre shave soap worth it?

    I usually just grab a small dollop of lather and massage it in before I start to face lather. I don’t find the pre-shave stuff to be particularly effective, to each their own, though.
