Got some samplers in last week of this newer artisan soap. I am impressed. Tallow, lanolin based soaps. Terrific scents, imo. Lathered easily with my boar brush using a modified "Marco" method (i.e., very wet brush that I squeeze quickly right at base of the knot & lots of product on brush). Lather was copious, cushiony and slick as guano. After shave feel was nice (lanolin). I find this to be remarkably similar performance-wise and scent-wise to Thru the Fire premium soaps, which I really like a lot (TTF may be slightly cheaper tho, I think) but with a larger and more varied scent selection.

So if you are looking for something a little bit different scent-wise and with good performance, check it out.

Minor correction. Stearic Acid and lanolin, not tallow. Subtle difference.

Otherwise I agree. It's a great soap.

I agree they are really great soaps. I received the Lumberjack as a gift and find it very easy to lather and super slick. I will be adding more of these soaps for sure.

I just bought a sampler pack of 12 soaps from them. There are some great scents.

Bourbon Jungle is awesome. I get Heavy Sandalwood, hints of chocolate bourbon and powder.

Ordered the 12 pack sampler late last night from Retro Shave Shop and it has already shipped out by this morning --- talk about service! Am really looking forward to trying these out.

It's not often you get heavy sandalwood. I might have to try this one. Thanks for sharing.

Just ordered a few samples. All the scents sound great - hard to choose.
