found this video on youtube and thought it might be helpful to anyone wanting to grate their soaps into shaving sticks.

Great video!

I grated down a puck of D.R. Harris Arlington into a stick container and used the tamper on my 3-way pipe tool to push the soap down.

I think west coast shaving sells them.

I've grated a good number of hard soaps to stick form.. Trumpers and MWF to name just a few. Also have Cella stick which is the only way I like this vixen..

I use travel six twist up deodorant stick containers. Clean them well and pack them tight.. Cheap and effective

I love shave sticks, and I've just had a great idea involving this technique:

If I grated smaller amounts of several different shaving soaps, and packed them in the container in layers (strata), I'd wind up with a multi stick with a "...and now for something completely different" feel to it.
Toss it in a travel kit ϥ forget what soaps you used to make it ϥ and you've got a pleasant little surprise sampler to enhance your travel shaves.

I'm gonna do it!
