Used CoatTails for the first time this morning and it is very different from Mohammad’s other soaps.  The lather from this soap is more like a paste once built.  It takes a ton of water just like his other soaps but this soap is also softer so it’s easy to load too much as I did this morning after a 15 second load.  The cushioning is exceptional just like his other soaps but thicker and pastier.  My shave was outstanding but this new base does not have as good of an afterfeel as all of the other soaps in the GD line.  All in all, I loved the scent, lather and shave.  I used my Karve razor with one of the new baseplates that I am testing for Chris.  Loved it!!  Outstanding shave this morning and I love the fact that these soaps are limited and numbered!!

What shaving bowl is that? Looks great!


Symmetrical Pottery. Think they are on Etsy and they have a website.

Thank you so much for posting your thoughts on the soap. I'm happy you like it.

This base takes a very different directions from other bases. In making this base I wanted to make a base that really emphasizes the controversial trait "Cushion" This base has a very obvious high level cushion feel Smile

The official release of the base in the Almond scent will have much better post shave feel.

Mohammad, you absolutely NAILED the cushion aspect!! I already love the cushion from your other soaps but this was on the “unreal” side of cushioning!!

Coattails

+1 from above

Have you ever had one of those experiences where you dread the end from the beginning? This mornings shave was one of those for me!

For those who were lucky enough to receive a tub of Coattails, you understand and for those who were not, I'm sorry... This one gets a WOW! The scent is exquisite! Quality of the lather, the top! Slick/Protection/Cushion/Post Shave, spot on! I agree with above that the post shave is just shy of some of GD's other offerings but still as good as any other soap out there! You do need to be aware that the soap is somewhat soft and loads quickly (don't want to waste any). I loaded my APShave 24mm SilkSmoke brush for about 8 seconds and had way more lather then I needed. I agree with george1906, this soap does handle a ton of water very well!

Mohammed, BRAVO! You are making me want to sell many of my other soap/creams. How can it get any better??

First shave with Coat tails. This makes a very dense and creamy lather. It is extremely easy to load. As you can see, I loaded too much. Big Grin
Slickness is great and it’s one of the few soaps that I can buff with its residual slickness. Didn’t use a post shave product and do not feel the need to. Cannot begin to describe the scent but the wife and I enjoy it.
Bravo Mohammad! There has not been one of your soaps that has disappointed in the performance department. Looking forward to the new releases.
