I have enjoyed shaving with some vintage (1975?) Williams soap but was frustrated by the price, and lack of availability, of the product. I wished there were some samples out there. Now, for a limited time, samples are out there. The puck is so dry and brittle that it does not easily accommodate cutting. In lieu of that I grated the soap, adding just a touch of water as I went, and patted it down nicely into an empty tub. The soap has settled nicely and will accommodate cutting (I had excellent lathering using the grated soap this morning… better than the hard puck yesterday). I plan to cut this into marble size chunks. You can take the chunk, smash it down into your soap dish, and get a shave or two out of it. This seems like the best way to get the largest number of usable samples (if you know of a better way let me know… I realize grating soap is unsettling to some). I hope to get 15 to 20 samples… but I may be overly optimistic. If you have read this far… here is the good part. I will send out these samples, postage paid, for free. I will put them in a small plastic bag and mail via a standard envelope. I don’t think the sample will dry out… but if it does water will certainly revive it. I don’t know how many samples I will get but if you are interested respond here. To separate the chaff from the wheat identify the best album ever recorded, and/or the best song ever recorded featuring a Hammond tone-wheel organ and Leslie, and/or the best “obscure” time travel movie. The 3 category winners will get a sample… (also there will be a winner at large for making a comment that did not address the listed categories but was deemed to be unusually worthy/insightful). Everyone else will compete via a random drawing. Again not sure how many players we will get (fewer players may yield bigger sample sizes). I will leave this open for 24 hours.
