Has anyone tried any of the Strop Shoppe non-tallow products? More specifically, the vegan Black Tie. Everyone raves about the tallow-containing soaps, I was wondering if the vegan soaps measure up.

Thanks.

Good question. I would be interested in these soaps also, if they are good performers.

I've tried about 10-12 soaps in total and I must say I found the Strop Shoppe to be at the bottom of the list should I rank them in order of preference.

The scents were not too pleasing and I found that the lather dissipated really quickly leaving a rather lacking shaving experience.

As always YMMV depending on so many factors.

The Strop Shoppe Special Edition soaps are extremely well performing soaps, whereas their non-tallow soaps are just average performers. There are many other vegan soaps that I'd consider, if that is what you are interested in. Tiki Bar Soap has stirred up an interest lately, and Petal Pusher Fancies, Synergy, and Los Angeles Shaving Soap Company are very popular.
