I just ordered two Wilkinson Sword Shaving Soap Sticks from Connaught Shaving. I've heard good things about these sticks and I'm looking forward to trying them.

Enjoy. You're in for a real treat, and they're fairly cheap as well. Great soap. Cool

Wilkie electric blue shave sticks - a great soap!

I wish that they were a little stronger in the scent department, but performance is top notch.

Thanks for the replies guy's. I just got an email that the shave sticks have shipped, probably see them within a week or so.

Clayton, whilst the Palmolive stick is widely available in supermarkets in the UK, the Wilkinson Sword stick I have yet to see. It is available through Connaught Shaving in the UK but their prices are certainly higher than what you'd pay if bought from any shop stocking it. I believe it tends to sold more in independent chemists/shops although that may be incorrect. I always keep an eye open.

The scent is familiar if you have smelled Speick, but smells less salty, if that makes any sense at all...It is a wonderful creamy lather, but not so easy to get locally so I avoid it...

Cool, I like the scent of Speick. Crag, Connaught Shaving has it for a fairly low price and you get two sticks.

Tried the Wilkinsons for the first time yesterday with my adjustable Schick Injector with a Personna NOS blade, and I gotta say "wow" talk about a smooth comfortable shave. This little blue stick really put's out some thick, and slick protective lather. I'll be buying it again in the future. I think it will be a repeat of the same shave this morning.

I've never seen them for sale in the UK, unlike the Palmolives and Erasmic which are widely available.
I'll check again when I'm back home at Xmas. Always fancied trying them out!
