Made from the finest ingredients our traditional shaving soaps and creams have excellent stubble softening and conditioning properties ensuring a close shave and beautifully scented skin. Use with one of our classic badger hair brushes to create a rich lather.
The soap has a comparatively strong scent. Using a silvertip badger brush fully loaded with water i whipped up a good lather in a few seconds and continued to build this upon my face over the next couple of minutes. The lather was not of the luxuriously creamy variety produced by tallow it was slightly thinner with lots of bubbles and lasted the duration of the first pass. I have been using a single bladed razor with this soap for the last two weeks and have never felt the need for a second pass. The blade slips effortlessly through the hairs leaving little residue and my skin is still slick enough to take care of the few missed bits without the need to apply a second coat. The final result has thus far been a thoroughly clean shave without mishap, and an adequately moisturised face.

Tallowless Equates To Quality Lost
Once a mighty fine soap, when it included tallow.
Sadly, shift of production to a different manufacturer sees the quality diminish due to the elimination of tallow and inferior replecement of palm oil.
Scent is absolutely divine, if not upon the muted side, which makes it a real pity, as it could still be a regular in my rotation if it was the stronger scented tallow version that lathered just looking at it
