I bought a roll of it several years ago thanks to a heads-up by you on these forums...and I completely forgot about it! I'm going to dig it out and try it.
I just looked up that post. It was 6 years ago and you still haven't tried the soap?!? :shock:
It was six years. I moved, packed it away, and sort of forgot about it. :oops:

Anyway, it is terrific. All this time I was futzing around with overrated stuff like MWF, and I coulda been using this! #-o

That's OK. The stuff was already around 60 years old. What's another six? I haven't used mine in awhile and now I am inspired to break out a puck and lather up.

Can I snag a puck please? Sniff sniff. Ive been a good boy and I could really use a good fancy soap to use.... sniff sniff.

I can even get you on a test circuit for some new razors in a few months, perhaps at least for an adjustable balance point razor handle...

Tom, it doesn't hurt to ask, right? If I had one, I'd be happy to send it. Good luck!

I have a vintage Colgate stick which came from Sweden. It still has a nice, light scent and does it ever lather great!
