    Brambleberry Melt and Pour shave soap

    Well I went to the Brambleberry website to price out a pound and it appears they don't carry the melt and pour shave base any longer. I think I have about half of my original supply left. Might be time to 'make' some shave soap :)

    Brambleberry Melt and Pour shave soap

    I was doing some cleaning this past weekend and ran across some old melt and pour soap I'd 'made' many years ago from stuff I'd bought at Brambleberry. The recipe was something along the lines of 3 parts Brambleberry shave base to 1 part Brambleberry goat milk base. I scented it with some spicey...

    Still not impressed with Tabac

    Horses for courses. Just because I like Tabac doesn't mean you do. Hope you find a soap that makes you happy.

    Do shave soaps expire?

    I have a few soaps that are at least 10 years old and still fine.

    What shave soap do you have the most of? How many do you have?

    I have ~twelvish Arko sticks. I don't feel like counting, and some are stuffed in mugs or in my travel bags. 'Twelvish' is probably more like 'fifteenish'.

    The Joy of Dull Blades

    I favor 'face feel' over almost any other blade characteristic. 'Sharp' and 'dull' aren't necessarily the terms I use to describe blades. I like a well-used Personna for example, and I'm willing to take one into the teens for uses before I toss it, but at some point it becomes inefficient and I...

    When I want a no-nick, no-weeper, no-cut shave, I use Arko

    If I don't want any doubt of top-flight cutting lather I Marko-method Arko. I end up with Arko all over the sink and my chest but it results in a lather that provides great protection, slipperiness, and lubrication. This is often my choice of lather after I've gone a long time without a shave...

    What shave stick did you use today?

    Arko, but it's smushed into an OS mug.

    Opinions on Arko Scent?

    Same here. Smushed Arko in my Old Spice mug is my typical Monday shave. I'm willing to bet the scent has muted a bit living in the mug but it was just a pleasant soapy vaguely lemony/citronella scent for me. Slapped some Stetson AS over it and any remembrance of the Arko scent was gone.
