Mike's Natural Soap

Anyone ever try these soaps?

I've had the same tin of shaving soap for probably four years and it's finally coming to an end. Was looking for a new soap and as a hobbyist craftsman, I like to support them as well. This guys sounds right up my alley and I've found some good reviews, but was wondering if anyone here has tried them?

Yes, I have used it. Great stuff, builds a pretty good thick lather. Magnus has a video using it some where, I wll see if I can find it tonight. But its a good buy.

Heard good things about them, but never tried it.

PS: Congratulations Adam, nice to have someone like you among our ranks ;)

Ha Michiel....I'm not past the safety razor. :o I do love the brush/soap and safety razor a LOT more than the spray can and Mach Gagillion though.

Mr. Magnus, thanks for the video. I ordered one tin and a couple of samples.

I hesitated to get into straight razor shaving, but now can't see doing it any other way.

Man... I didn't hesitate once the idea popped in my head, but damn has this been an arduous journey thus far. I'm on my third razor now & I think it's a winner for my facial skin/hair, but damn these cuts, and razor burn & ALL THE DAMN TIME IT TAKES. :evil:

I keep telling myself, "I don't ride a horse to work, why am I using the same technology to shave with.?!"

I can't help but face the reality that modern technology clearly won in this arena, but I'm still drawn to the straight edge & have been dedicated to improving my results. A big thank you to my mentors... ;)

So I got the soap and samples....very nice. The smells are incredible and the soap is much nicer than what I previously had. Leaves my face very soft and the shaving is easier.

Awesome find.
