    My Guess... 3017

    What scent will you try? What a trooper! I'm 35 shaves into a puck of AoSt sandalwood. It's my reference soap and I needed a reset after box 4 of the sample passaround with @dfoulk. I never heave a bad shave with AoSt! While I'm here, I'll update my 3017. Finished a tube of Nivea cream...

    Shaving soaps and the cost per shave- Data mined from the 3017 thread.

    Every time I use Haslinger after an extended break I use too little water for my soap loading. I use less Haslinger than Valobra (AoSt). However, going off memory, I seen to recall guys getting 45-90 shaves per puck so I'd say you're right in line.

    Soap Sample Passaround Box

    I forgot the box yesterday but managed to get it sent off today. The old one was in bad shape so there's a fresh one in it's way too @Shave Jacket . They said it would arrive Monday and he has the tracking number in PM. I retried Grooming Department and had a fantastic shave yesterday.

    Yesterday's shave was rough with Cafe Orleans from Big Easy. I don't know if it was the base or the scent but my face was irritated before the razor. Today was so much better, a very nice shave with Smooth Operator. In fact, I'd say that it lived up to the name.

    Soap Sample Passaround Box

    Well said, Orlando. Sorry that I read into your post that you had evacuated. So thankful that all is well with your family. Onto infinitely lesser things, I also had a nice shave before service this morning. I used the "new 2018" formula from Long Rifle. The "Brown Bess" scent was great to...

    Well, I'm sorry that you've had to evacuate due to the storm. Please give us an update on your safety and God's provision. A little good news amongst the devastation is that our little soap box made it safely to Tennessee last night. I quickly sniffed some Grooming Department and settled on...

    Been away for a while . . . looks like Justin was waiting on me. My apologies for that. Is it possible to get back into the listing or just sit out this box 4?
