someone did mention all bad things happen in three's
well here is Tim's Soap notice on his website


THE END OF THE LINE

What a ride the last couple of years have been. What started as a tiny batch of peach-scented soap for a friend became an adventure much greater than I could have imagined, and I have enjoyed it thoroughly.

Having said that, the time has come to suspend soapmaking operations here. I have quite a bit of stock on hand, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. This has been a difficult decision for me to make, but it is the right one, for a variety of reasons.

I want to say thank you to my customers, friends, and family for the support you have given me in this little venture. I saw my soap for sale at Maggard Razors and Shave Revolution and Italian Barber and several other shave shops. I shipped soaps to Pasteur Pharmacy, a mecca of American wetshaving and the first brick-and-mortar shop I ever visited with any kind of true wetshaving supplies. I shipped soap to Israel, Australia, Greece…. Little moments of magic, each and every one.

I’m honored by the great reviews and kind words so many of you have offered up. I hope that all of the folks who have bought my soaps continue to enjoy them for many more shaves. And who knows? Perhaps eventually circumstances will allow me to pick up where I’m leaving off. Or maybe the odd batch of Ghostface Nilla or Greek Peach will find its way into the world.

For now, though, it’s the end of the line. Thanks again, all.

I just ordered the Tim's shaving soap (Ruby Red) I have been eyeing for some time.

That's a shame, really! I love his Peach soap. I need to run and grab some Ruby Red before it's gone.

That third paragraph was beautiful. I completely understand what he means. It's a tremendous feeling to see your product reach people around the world. Best of luck to Tim in whatever his future holds and congratulations on his success in the shaving world. Unfortunately, the company that continues in perpetuity is the rare duck.
