vintage soaps that is. Was looking threw my stash of stuff and found:

4 vintage Williams pucks
4 vintage Renleight pucks (my favorite)
2 JT Watkins pucks
1 Seaforth puck
1 Franklin Toiletries puck

Looks like I need to get started using these. Using a Renleigh puck right now and wonder what I should start on next. Decisions, Decisions.

Try the vintage Williams to see how badly the present version performs. Biggrin

The vintage Williams is fantastic. I think I have 5 pucks of varying age.

I just finished off a vintage "Wings" shave soap that came in a small wooden bowl. It didn't make a voluminous nor thick lather, but it was slick and very stable. I have numerous other vintage soaps that are still untouched. It's hard to break that first use barrier, but once I start I seem to have a problem not reaching for it nearly every shave. As good as modern shave soaps are, there are very few vintage ones that have not performed better than most modern. Of course the downside to vintage soaps is that the scents are usually faded or lacking completely, which is an aspect of the lathering process I quite enjoy.
