WELCOME!

We have much in common, but I'm from Mars, originally!

Please jump in here often. B and B needs more earthlings.
 
I just saw that you make your own soap. Please tell us about that.

And also, isn’t Clubman great, I love it!
Yes I do make my own blend of soap. It's not something that I make from scratch but take different soaps and grind them up and go from there. I use Williams mug soap as a base. Usually use 4 pucks of that. Then I add some arko shave stick, some van der hagen soap, glycerin, vitamin E oil, coconut oil, a tube of of cremo, and some utter creme (for cows utters). Believe or not it really makes some great soap for my face. I'm a bowl lather guy so it works for me. Plus it's really cheap. Sometimes I'll add some bay rum.

Clubman is good stuff. It has been around a long time. I use it everytime I shave, not just on Friday.

Cool mixture! I guess I make my own also, I call it Frankensoap. It's the end of my tubs of various soaps that I put into one tub. I'll also grate a puck of Mitchells Wool Fat with a puck of Haslinger Schafmilch.
