Cyril Salter solid shaving soap (tallow)

Talk about a hard soap. Today was the 22nd shave on the puck. I load the synthetic brush for 10 seconds. I've calculated this hard little puck will last approximately 85 more shaves at this pace. That will be around 105 shaves total when it eventually runs out. This is the small 70g puck. Considering how inexpensive the soap is to begin with, this is probably one of the best currently available shaving soap values.

ex the value proposition, it is a really good soap. I now spend my days wishing for a rose version :D :D

Who sells this soap? Anyone in the US?

Is it lightly scented (hopefully)?

Thanks.

I consider it lightly scented. Not unpleasant to my nose. YMMV. I have only found it at Connaught. Even with shipping it is cheap and fast.
Anyone buying it from any source, whether Connaught or any other source, should make sure it is 100 or 70 grams. There is another, earlier version that is either 99 or 57 grams. This is NOT tallow, and should be avoided if one is seeking the excellent version that I am addressing in my posts.

Thanks, Gary.

Connaught is where I found it, too. They have a few other things I would like, as well, so I may well place an order with them.

Thanks, Janus. That's a vendor I didn't know about.

You're welcome, Murray! New vendors keep poppin' up fairly regularly, I've noticed. Hopefully there's enough business to go around for them all. I wonder if this little hobby of ours is gaining popularity.
